Collaging like crazy

Tonight Jon and I stayed home and I sweet talked him into helping me with my giant collage for the wedding show. After 6 months of the old painting leaning against my wall,today it became something new! I am pretty excited about how all the pieces are coming together. I am also super grateful for Jon’s encouragement and help with this project. For some reason the word collaging is looking weird to me. I had to look it up to make sure it was a word. Webster says it is, spell check wants to change it.
