This is a collage I did for my mother-in-law. The background is old cross stitch patterns because we used to love to do needlepoint together. The flowers are painted pages from a dictionary. It is hard to see but I wove strips of brown painted paper to make the basket on the bicycle. The large flowers on the left were the result of a mistake. I accidentally glued the bicycle down off-center and had to figure out a way to balance the piece. I actually like it better than what I had originally planned. Sometimes mistakes can be a good thing!
