Artist Peter Dayton is proof that you can use simple materials to craft extraordinary creations. Dayton subscribes to several seed and flower catalogs, selects his favorites and then "enlarges them on a color Xerox machine, cuts up the copies, and pastes the pieces onto a canvas. Then he covers the surface with resin to give his work a smooth, glossy finish." (2003 Elle Decor article)

Talk about a sophisticated collage project!
