Mini Collages

Hot on the heels of the ATCs I made earlier, these are some mini collages for a swap I'm in on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. I haven't been a member for very long and this is the first swap I've taken part in. The backgrounds are spray inks on glossy card. I added images from an old bird book I picked up on my travels and text from Longfellow. I recently bought a battered copy of Longfellow's works from the local junk shop. I love Longfellow and have two copies of my own so I specifically bought this one to use the text in artwork. I'm keeping it on my desk and if text is needed for anything I'm trying to use just this book for a while. :o) A touch of teal Staz-On round the edges and that's that!
