A friend gave me a flea-market-find jewellry box with a picture frame in the lid. It seemed like a fun chance to experiment with three-dimensional layers in a collage! Lily is the result.
Like the other collages, it is centered around a 1920s style portrait done in watercolor pencil and black ink. Her dress is a knitted layer in black stretched over silver foil. I added three calla lilies to round out the foreground. Behind her a dragonfly is suspended mid-flight. The background is a sequin starfield suspended above black velvet.
