A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I was experimenting with different collage papers the other day and decided to add watercolor around the glued papers.

Some of the papers I used were from Sharon Mann, when we did our collage paper exchange.  If you missed that post, you can read more about it here:  The Speedball Bird

Other papers were from my own collage experiments that I had sewn on my sewing machine and then printed on the Gelli-Plate.

I made two tags for my art journal and found they had a “circus” feel to them:


That is how today’s weird bird came to be… He is from the “Flying Circus!” 😉


A Three-Ring Circus Bird

I used Sharon Mann’s collage papers for this bird!  Thanks again Sharon! 🙂

I finished my “circus” tags with a few pen doodles:


Do you have happy memories from attending a circus?  I hope you share them with me!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

  4. I love your Flying Circus Bird and his or her lampshade hat.

    Your tags are wonderful! They’d make lovely bookmarks too.

    I’m not a fan of the traveling circus, the Elephants and clowns scare me, but
    Circus Circus in Las Vegas is fun. The trapeze acts are my favorites there.

    • Hi Deborah, I remember going as a young child to the circus and how enormous everything seemed so I can see why it would scare you. 😳
      I’m glad you like my bird! He is a high-flying trapeze bird… Lol! 🐦☺️ Happy Wednesday! 💕
