Sharon Mann at MakeArtMagicHappens and I recently exchanged hand-painted collage papers. It was so fun to get Sharon’s delightful, creative papers in the mail! 🙂
We thought it would be fun to share the papers we received from each other today AND create a wacky, weird bird with our new papers!
Below is my bird as it developed next to Sharon’s gorgeous papers…
I added pencil shading to give my bird dimension. I love the bright colors Sharon used in her papers here:
Sharon creates in a wonderful variety of shapes, patterns and playfulness in her papers (can you find the bird?!)
Adding the final touches, can you find the 3 pen nibs I collaged to the bird’s feathers?
Sharon makes her “pen and ink” drawings sing like the color collage in the middle:
I finished my bird by adding color pencils:
The Speedball Bird
I encourage you to share your art with a friend. It may open up new ideas and possibilities!
Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!
P.S. Thank you Sharon for this fun exchange and challenge! I enjoyed it soooo much!
