A Victorian Flower Album

I have a lovely book of illustrations by
Henry Terry
I have been working on adding my flower pieces to the pages. Six months later, this is what I have so far.
I wanted a book to keep some of my flower collages .
I hope you enjoy seeing what I have so far!

What a cool book to house your flower collages ... and you've done a fab job of teaming up the collages to the pages.
