Serenity Simple Collage

I decided to create a peaceful and Serene simple collage card tonight. I wanted to use the birds, from the Bluebird plate, on the telephone wire which I airbrushed with my copic airbrush system. I also airbrushed the main Serenity image just so that it had some color but not much detail. I know that is different for me, but it is actually one of my favorite techniques.
I wanted to use the large Serenity sentiment that is included in the plate but I just couldn't fit it on the page with the other two images, so I cut each line into strips and mounted them at different angles.
I distressed the edges of the two colored images and the light kraft cs for texture and added 3 prima flowers with button centers.
I really like the basic simplicity of it, but yet it really doesn't look that simple.

I am off to clean up my stamp room and go to bed.
See you later, Thanks for stopping by.
