Postal Birds

The theme for today's pc is "birds".  I decided to incorporate a large number of different birds by creating a postage-stamp-scattered desk top.  

Some of the postage stamps were built using blank frames (100 Proof Press and TooMuchFun both carry these) and a variety of bird images.  Others, as the "owl post" image below, were stamped with a postoid stamp.

As you can probably guess, this project required a lot of masking.  The masks were just straight lines though, so it wasn't all that time-consuming.  Adding subtle shadows gives the illusion of depth.

I really should have included denominations for the postage--oops!
I love how the baby chick seems  to be thinking, "What're you looking at?"  :)
