Dove Collage, continued again

I wish I hadn’t pushed the calligraphy so far back, so I bring it forward again a bit by darkening abound it and between the two pieces.

Now I’m beginning to blend the edges around the drawings into the background with successive washes of diluted acrylic.  I’m working towards a point where the drawings, not the torn pieces, are the images the eye sees.  I’ve also added a subtle halo around the dove’s head. The intense texture of the green paper leaves is bothering me, but I plunge ahead.
