Shut up in a Cage

This is a hanging piece I made for a monthly swap I'm involved in.  The bird theme is a favourite of mine.  The smaller background consists of various papers with a wash of cream paint.  The tree is stamped on tissue paper and glued over top. The larger background is a page from an old phone book glued to matt board and painted over with various Golden paints and glazes.  I then stamped the flourishes and filled in the open areas with a white gel pen.

This piece is a 'mate' to another previously made for myself to hang on my new art wall and will upload it soon.
