i've always had such admiration for those with patience (mostly because I have almost none...).
A friend of mine recently shared with me the website for Ms Beth Hoeckel. This lovely lass creates a number of mixed media, painting and photography pieces, but most admirable are her collages.
All her collages are created using found paper and are in no way digitally edited (except for scanning in).
I loved her work that much that I grabbed myself one of her 'moonrise' (second down) prints, signed and numbered. A steal price at only $60.00 (US) and of course supporting such a brilliant artist.
you can check out her website here to see more of her work and perhaps even purchase something for yourself :)
