Mixed Media Birdie

After finishing the lettering class with Joanna Sharpe, I signed up for Junelle and Christy Tomlinsons mixed media class. I had a lot of fun getting messy last night. The background paint was added on top of a 1874 Arithmetic book. The lace is vintage lace, the flowers are off a cotten shirt I picked up at the thrift store...just for the flowers around the bottom. The bird is maded from different papers, so is the teacup and books. Most of this was done with my fingers, boy were they a mess!!
