I so enjoyed working in this book. I have never made a book for myself that cataloged the bird community around our property. I am so inspired to do so!

This is the back of the previous page. First I printed out a page of various bird eggs. I tore it and added some of it to the right side of the page. Then I tore a page from a vintage pharmacy register that I purchased from the Etsy shop, The Little Art Studio, owner Rebecca Stewart. I tore it in half and adhered it to the left side of this page. I love this bluebird picture that I cut from one of my recycled calendars and glued it over the pharmacy page. I glued gold paper over a chipboard letter "B: and added it to the bottom of the page. Then I attached three buttons to the spine of the "B". I used my calligraphy brush pen to finish
writing "Birds" across the page. I attached three faux postage stamps, a feather, and four flowers to the page. Finally I added a photo I took of a little Sparrow that had gathered materials for nest making in his mouth. He was just outside my studio door. I added this information just below the photo.
