I colored the little girls with chalks and placed them against a torn paper (some vintage and some not) background. The birds were provided by Mary on a collage sheet. Did some shading around the images with colored pencils. I added some postage stamps, rubber stamps and the dogwood branch was purchased in a package from Alpha Stamps. The edges were colored with a brown watercolor crayon and then I used the water brush to wet them down. (I learned this technique from Lenna Andrews :*)
Mary's first class was full of inspiration and I can see this one will be more of the same!
