I had a photo of this collage in step one A, but can't find it so here is the original pile of papers among which I chose to make the collage below.
I don't think this is finished. I also made a mistake. I wrote on it with Micron pen which is okay. But continued writing later and used another pen which blurrs when I paint over it so bluck. Not sure what to do. Could place a layer of tissue over it perhaps and redo? The photo is one of a bunch I bought in a thrift store from the 1920's.
The orginal proposed layout for the collage below.
Not sure if I'll do more tweaking of this one.
