Buddha at a fuzzy angle

Here's another collage I made this weekend. I was playing around with color and texture but Buddha isn't translating as well from the scan as I hoped. I may need to try it with the camera. I like the background but I didn't get a good balance with the mail elements. I tend to like things very sparse or way overboard. I'm working on finding the good middle ground...

Again, I used a mix of acrylic glazes on a gessoed canvas. I used one of my favorite text stamps to create the words and then the red dragonfly stamp was used with the colorbox chalk stamps... fyi, the ink really doesn't want to dry. I had to use the heat gun and a little clear embossing powder. I love the colors but really need to work on the composition.
