Getting Starting: Using A Magazine Photo To Jump Start A Color Palette in Working With Mixed Media Collage

I still can't believe i spent over ten dollars to buy a decorating magazine because i liked one page in the magazine  which showed a new color combination for me to try in one of my mixed media collages. i often jumpstart my work by being influenced by some element in either a brochure, advertisement or magazine photo I fancy. So here you see the photo on the left for the inspiration for a collage (photo on the right) of a piece I am working on.
