Studio Closeup #29

Today’s studio closeup is in the bird category, a new piece from The Museum Series. The bird image inside the diorama is from a sticker seal book from the 1960’s and the background for this diorama is patterned origami paper with sticks from the front yard.

I have collected quite a few of these old school sticker/seal books with a good deal of them purchased from Racine Nelson’s Dime Store in the early 1990s. There are a lot of intricate illustrations in those little packs and I wanted to give them a proper home. I’ve included a photo of these old sticker/seal sets to give you an idea of what I’m talking about. They make excellent diorama subjects.

Please enjoy!
