Birds of a feather

A while ago I started working on a new altered book journal. It will probably be used when my current jounal is filled up.

To be able to use a book for a journal you have to tear out a lot of pages, otherwise there's just no room for collage. 

Now it so happens that the pages I tore out were gorgeous paper. Thick and luscious, almost like fabric. I couldn't resist using two of them right away for a couple of mixed media pieces.

This is what became of them. As you can see it also gave me the opportunity to use some of my stencils, stitch through paper and...draw some birds. A win win win win situation!
