These birds came from the fly sheet of another old book that I had. I colored them and decided that they were the spectators for the parade. The cobblestones were done with book paper, and layed with tissue on top. Then I added a coat of clear gesso so that I could use watercolor pencils on top to add depth.
I proudly hung the collage in the front hall until my daughter asked me to please remove it before anyone came to visit!
Oh well, you can't please everyone.
