Junk mail journal collage circa 12.2.11

Another of my little collage studies. All collage elements are from incoming mail on December 2nd, 2011. This one started because I liked the way the half-round closure-type sticker, at upper right, had diffused the beautiful blue color of the paper below. Then one thing led to another! There certainly is a wealth of potential collage materials arriving daily right now -- catalogs and holiday messages galore.
