The Next Drawing Collage

This is the first of the drawing elements for my next collage – a rock dove.  The theme will be “royal birth” and this dove will be nesting in a rusted crown.  The nest will be various collage elements including drawn leaves and feathers.

My main problem is how to make the rusted crown.  I would like it to be dimensional – at least with the look of shaped metal, but not rounded to protrude from the canvas.  I’m thinking of cutting out a crown-shaped piece of thin metal and embossing it, then coating it with a faux rust finish.  We’ll see.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of drawn elements to work on.

Drawing is my favorite of all!
