GC57 Chestnut Theme-Wings

I made these 4 by 4 fat book pages for a swap over at Collage Stuff.  I haven't done many 4 by 4 swaps, but did one a few months ago over at Artchix Studio.  The theme for the swap was birds and this also fits the Gingersnap Creations "Wings" challenge.  I made the background by covering watercolor paper with old book pages, then applying a light layer of gesso and finally spraying dye ink sprays over masks.  I'm really happy with how they turned out.  I used German scrap birds and perched them on a swirly die cut.  The little bird embellishment is made by layering a bird brad over a paper flower and German scrap stars.  The bottom border is ribbon tape.
