Here is my latest creation. The photo doesn't do it justice. I painted the background, stamped the background using a styrofoam design, added cardboard for the picket fence, used homemade paper, added a bird and flowers image, and used pastels to add a glimpse of flowers in the background. I may add some stamping, but for now it is a finished piece. The handmade paper really adds an interesting dimension. I hope to put this in my library exhibit.
