Don’t send me flowers when I’m dead. If you like me, send them while I’m alive. Brian Clough. French word collage means coller, to glue, it is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty. Here are collages of beautiful flowers contrasting in colors, or come harmonically in the shades of one color.
