A Party Gal And Night Owl

Funny how one idea often leads to another!

I recently created this paper collage for the 100-day project on Instagram (I’m doing 100 days of faces).

“Dottie hoped someone would ask her to dance at the party…”


I found a photo of a face and cut it in half to challenge myself to draw the second half of her face a little differently. Β I added collage from a magazine for her dress and a hat from paper I purchased to give her a little zing! πŸ™‚ The background I created with watercolor.

This led me to create today’s weird bird: Β “Her friends called her a night owl.”


This one is a bit weird – even for me… but you have to admit, it is quite a hoot to look at! Β Lol! Β πŸ˜‰

I found an image of an owl, cut it in half and found an image of a gal’s face and matched the two images together. Β Next, I traced part of her dress using tracing paper and then cut out a piece of my gelli-printed paper. Β I liked the striking contrast with the black and white image with the red.

I found another gelli-print to paste my image to – it looks a bit mysterious with a moon shape in the upper left corner. Β The image at the bottom I cut from a piece of collage paper.

I hope you enjoyed learning how I created today’s collages. Β These were like a puzzle for me and so fun to do!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! πŸ™‚

  7. These are great. I especially liked how sensitive you were to your starting material as you built on it. A very thoughtful process, I thought, and with such arresting results.

    • Thank you, Claudia 😊 I do think the background can add or subtract from a piece of collage. It took me awhile to find the right color for the owl one. I appreciate your comments! ❀
