I do like how these pages are looking. I am especially impressed with how well the owl worked. It is a rub on transfer, and I've never used one in an art project before. It works really well, covering the background and paper image. There was a point when I had to re-rub the transfer sheet, but it all worked out. I honestly have no idea how a small sheet of British animal transfers ended up in my stash.
It still needs more work, but I'm feeling enthused about it.
