Mixed Media Art Journal page for TTCRD web challenge

With the release of the TTCRD March/April Magazine right around the corner. The new web challenge for TTCRD will be starting. It has a theme of  "Mixed Media" this round so i decided to create a Art Journal page with a bird theme. You only have to be a member of our ning group to play along.
I love mixed media, but never know who to give my projects to that would also appreciate it, so i started this art journal years ago and thought that another page would be fun and it was.
