Word and Bird Jumbles

I like to do the word jumble in the newspaper.  It looks like this:

word jumble

Jumble means to mix together in a disorderly heap or mass, a confused mixture; a medley.

I kind of think my one-liner bird stacks are a jumble of birds:

Using a black micron pen, I start my drawing at the bottom of the page.  Without lifting my pen from the paper, I draw a bird or a branch and then draw the next bird on top and so on.  The goal is not lifting your pen off the paper and to draw quickly without much thought.

Then I like to color them.  I used color pencils for the one above.

On the above medley, I used watercolor pencils to color my birds.

These are fun to do in front of the TV because they require little thought.

It is fun to see what turns up in my stack!  I colored the above with Copic markers and color pencils.

I like to use my bird jumbles as bookmarkers.  They are a fun way to use up scraps of paper.

Enjoy your day!

  3. Gosh these are so cute! I love the second one. It would be great as a measuring picture on a kids wall, to measure their growth. Do it on material and what a neat present it would be when then have their own kids. 😁
