Mixed Media Monday Challenge - Warm it Up!

This week the challenge at Mixed Media Monday is to use warm colors in your art. I realized I don't use alot of warm colors, gravitating more towards the cool colors. So it was fun to use all these vibrant, happy colors.
Here is my mixed media collage - click on the picture to enlarge it.
I started with a 4X4 inch piece of white bazilli paper and glued on many different handmade papers. I added a ripped scrap from a spanish novel and stamped a french post card in sepia ink. I stamped the woman in black on a translucent white piece of unryu paper with gold and silver specs. Tore the piece to make uneven edges and glued to the paper. I used gel medium to adhere the 4X4 to the 5X5 canvas that is 1 & half  inches thick, which I had painted in Titan Buff. I added the lace, snaps, hooks, flowers, beads, heart. I used gold fabric paint to adorn the hair and the sun. I glued scraps to each side of the canvas and added snaps on top and bottom.
