I just finished creating this Blue Bird Collage. Usually, when I make a collage art piece, I cover the entire background/substrate with decorative papers or images.This time I worked from the center out and I like the final result.
The text page is from an old book entitled, Harrington's Spelling Book, copyright 1895. The book was a gift to a Miss Lossie Alligook. I wonder about all the many people who handled this book since the 1800s. The book is literally falling apart but I think that is what drew me to its pages.
