Flower girl

Last time I cleaned around the office, I found an old Vogue magazine. It must have been a spring issue because almost each page had flower pictures. It came to mind that I could use the flowers to collage a face. It took me for ever to do it, and it is only 6 x 6. I put a coat of gloss varnish, I think next time I will skip it.
Now I also see a black bird in the lower left corner. I will detail it a bit with pen and ink.
I have a lot of respect for collage artists, all artists really. I saw great portraits made of the teeniest bits of papers...
