Hiccups…

Did you know that the longest attack of hiccups according to Guinness Medical Record breakers was 68 years?!

“Charles Osborne of Anthon, Iowa started hiccuping while attempting to weigh a hog before slaughtering it in 1922… he was unable to find a cure and continued until February 1990.”

Today’s weird bird has a case of the hiccups…

How do you recommend he get rid of them?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Weird Bird?!

Sometimes a weird beast shows up unexpectedly…

This weird bird did not want to be a bird after all but something completely different!

Can YOU name it?!

This was so fun to create, you may be seeing more weird beasts showing up…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A House Finch

Today’s weird bird enjoys her quiet time in the early morning…

This House Finch is wearing a matching housecoat, hat and slippers… Perhaps she purchased it at an early bird sale? 🙂

She likes waking up early to a quiet household to enjoy a special cup of house blend seeds.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Blushing Betty

With Thanksgiving here next week in the States, it is time to start planning the Turkey dinner!

I purchased this old Betty Crocker cookbook from a thrift store.  I use it for collage.  It is filled with stains and comments on the pages… it makes me wonder whose family enjoyed it. 😉

I have been drawing a lot of pears lately so it seems fitting that a pear-shaped weird bird would appear…

Blushing Betty is a variation of the photographed recipe above for Quick Brown Betty. 

I wonder is Betty blushing because she painted her toenails?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Wacky Animal Prints

I had fun creating more Gelli-Plate Prints recently for the online class with Carla Sonheim.

After making an animal head as a stencil, our assignment was to cut it into four unequal quadrants and make monoprints.

Like a puzzle, pieces could be added or subtracted on each layer so the final prints were a little bit of a mystery.

Next, we were to add paint pens to complete our animals.  I used Posca paint pens which are opaque and cover most surfaces.

Below is one wild hare print before and after the paint pens:

We had the option to add eyes or a nose so I also included a bow tie! 😃

Below is a pig I did – before and after:

And two more, they look like “party” animals to me!

I also created some face “masks” in spirit of Halloween.  I hope to post them tomorrow.

I hope these wacky animal prints give you a smile today!

Cheers! 🙂

 

A Rare Sighting

This weird bird was recently spotted in a jungle somewhere…

A Crawfish-Bibbed Spear-Head Bird

It is so hidden in camouflage…

EED0883A-C661-4BCD-9AB4-5C655F811D8F

That it takes people time to recognize it.

Yet, if you are patient you will be lucky to see…

A rare sighting of this bird!

I hope it gives you a smile today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

Cheers! 🙂

A Strange Case…

Today’s weird bird is a strange case

Could it be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

A before and after photo:

Perhaps it is just an ordinary “Two-Headed Hat bird,” not to be confused with this one: The Cat Bird

If you’d like to inspect it further, here is a close-up photo:

Hope your day is clearly fabulous…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

More Clip Art…

Remember  The Paper Clips ?

Well, these strange birds didn’t want to miss out on the fun…

82D070B9-1F4D-4AFE-943F-21B0AFF5B1E6

So they decide to “clip” together…

And wish you a happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

I hope this gives you a smile today…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S.  Who knew that wine foils and paper clips could become Clip Art! 😉
