Cardinal Collage

I enjoy making textured and painted papers but don't seem to use them enough.  Having started this
bird series is the first time I am really using them in a way that justifies making more.  So all is good.
These are done on a card stock weight of paper but I'm thinking I may use the wood panels that I use
for the small daily paintings because the grain of the wood might be nice to use too.  I can see myself
adapting this newfound interest to the use of fabrics.  Something I've admired in art quilters but didn't think I'd get around to trying.  
Computer monitors vary quite a bit but for some reason the background green is more saturated than
my scan.  It's only when I bring it into this blog that is becomes a little too strong for my liking otherwise the original and the prints I'm making from it are a much nicer earthier green.
The original measures 8" x 10"
