Audobon-esque Collage: Bed Time Story Sketch !

Audobon-esque Collage: Bed Time Story Sketch !

This set of Waltzingmouse Simple Sprig reminded me of a large Coffee Table Book I have somewhere.
 John James Audobon's Warbler Prints.

For this card
I pictured him strolling through sun dappled fields to find the perfect place to sketch his birds.
His pen and sketchbook in hand.

I imagine that he would draw the perch and then spend extra time on the 
focal birds, sketching them over and over until he had the right positions.  
Then carefully 
place them in his landscape or foliage later.  
Not sure how he actually worked at all.....just my imaginings.

LOVE Audobon!

And though most are only 24 hrs,

Audubon's pictures really are stunning and you've totally captured this one in your card. Love the inked circles and two tone leaves. Gorgeous!
