Tag Tuesday's theme this week is Sea Birds. A while back I thrifted a complete set of 1920 Universal Encyclopedia of Ready Reference which has some great illustrations.
One page had Shore Birds - I loved the sepia colours which reminded me of sand. I tried something new using a piece of corrugated cardboard for the background. I stitched the original illustration to the background along with some scrap paper and vintage lace. I added the buttons as a final embellishment. Enjoy. Jewels
