Out on a Limb: 3

In early March, I posted a similar bird collage, Out On A Limb: 2. Back then, I mentioned that it was inspired by a collage in a catalog that I figured would be a snap to make. It wasn't too difficult but I didn't really have fun making it  (or the one before it) and didn't think I'd make more. Wrong.

This one came about when I was cutting a series of Chatterbox magazine bird engravings for a new series. I liked the bird in one engraving so much that I decided to replicate it using vintage book endpaper, text from antique children's books, a recycled security envelope and an illustration from an Impressionist art exhibit catalog. 5" x 5" on archival mat board {SOLD}
