Pair Of Dice?

These birds might hang from a rear-view mirror…

Or perhaps they are rolled in a game of Yahtzee?

But I believe they are Para-dice birds… Flying around in Paradise!

How many weird birds can you find hidden in this picture?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

A Face Haiku

Is it possible to create a face with just 7 lines?  Yes, I say!! 😄

IMG_2474 1.  It starts with a line

2.  And connects to a feature…

3.  They are easy and fun –

4.  But may look like a creature!  Lol! 😉

And here is a step-by-step example:

Seven lines for a face…

Is all it takes!

A Letter Day

Yesterday, I finished doodling my letters in my World Watercolor Month sketchbook that I posted recently:

IMG_2290

This inspired me to use the letters, “WBW” for today’s Weird Bird Wednesday:

IMG_2295

I knew if I moved my paper around, I could find a weird bird in the letters… Can you find one?

This one flew off the page at me – so I added a few more details with watercolors:

Next, I decided to doodle my letters with an ink pen to finish it:

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!

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…”

IMG_2179

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.  I added collage from a magazine for her dress and a hat from paper I purchased to give her a little zing! 🙂 The background I created with watercolor.

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

IMG_2199

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

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.  Next, I traced part of her dress using tracing paper and then cut out a piece of my gelli-printed paper.  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.  The image at the bottom I cut from a piece of collage paper.

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

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Grumpy Cat

My cat loves to be outside during the summer months when the weather is warmer.

But yesterday evening he got trapped (briefly) inside the garage…

IMG_2192

He was one grumpy cat!  😦

Carla Sonheim recently gave an assignment in her 365 video class – day #177 –  to draw several quick one-liner cats and my grumpy Jack cat appeared!  Lol!

Happy Drawing!  🙂

Planting Seeds Of Ideas

I took a day off from work yesterday.  It was such a beautiful day that I wanted to spend a little time outdoors.

I purchased a few plants to plant in a planter and lavender to plant in the ground:

IMG_2082

I worked on a collage that I started recently:

(I don’t like the pencil shading I added in the second photo but I had fun!)

And I placed an online order for new art supplies!  Yipee!!

I feel like I planted some creative “seeds” for future inspiration.

Cheers! 🙂

Vim And Vigor

Vim out on a limb…

Maid In The Shade

I’ve heard of a housewife…

And a househusband,

But a housebird?!!  How absurd!

Well, maybe not…

IMG_1634

Ha!  A bird has a built-in “feather duster!”

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂
