A Tintinnabulum

Today’s weird bird has a ring to it…

Tintinnabulum – (N) a small, tinkling bell or set of bells playing in succession.

This bird gives new meaning to a “wingding!” Lol!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pie Birds

PIE!!

These three Pie Birds are a slice of happiness, don’t you agree?!

What is YOUR favorite kind of pie?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

A โ€œBugโ€ In My Bonnet

I enjoyed my blogging break for the last two weeks… Although I couldn’t stay away from reading so many of your creative blogs! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I am looking forward to a new month… December is here! And Christmas is just around the corner… Hoorah!

Someone put a “bug” in my bonnet in the last couple of weeks and I have been drawing these bugs from my imagination:

I started with their imaginary “hats” from my Gelli-printed papers or copies of my own artwork.

I drew my imaginary bug in pencil before adding permanent pen.

There is something wonderful about creating from your imagination. It is so freeing!

Lastly, I added color pencils to give these bugs a little pizzazz…

Which bug(s) do you like?

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

A Weird Bug?

I interrupt this blogging break…

To show you this strange bug that appeared in my art journal:

Wednesday’s can be about weird birds…

And weird bugs!

One never knows what creative bug will land in my sketchbook next…

Happy Weird “Bug” Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

A Tropical Bird

It feels like winter has arrived in the Pacific Northwest…

So this tropical bird showed up for today’s weird bird:

It was so cold outside that my cat hesitated, not once, but 3-4 times to go outside! Brrr!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. Speaking of tropical, I have decided to take a short blogging “vacation” until the end of November. You will find me snuggling with my cat to stay warm!

Good Luck

A package may be landing on your doorstep soon…

Since Christmas is just around the corner!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

A FUNgus Weird Bird?

I have been drawing mushrooms and creating them as imaginaryย characters…

The mushrooms are based on REAL images… But I changed some of the names!

Yesterday, I mixed up my bird shapes from a previous post: A Trendy Bird?ย with a copy of my mushroom character parts:

I arranged the parts to create a weird bird. This one made me laugh!

So I created my finished bird with a mixture of drawing and gelli-prints:

The “morel” of the story is…

Som(e) brero mushrooms can make a FUNgus weird bird!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Leaves Falling

I was out in my yard yesterday and noticed the birds leaves falling

After all, it is FALL!

Several birds were in a tree and it got me thinking about my weird birds.

There is such a variety of leaf shapes much like birds!

Perhaps there is a leaf bird? Have you seen any lately?!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

A Trendy Bird?

Today’s weird bird is shaping up to be…

HIP as in hippo:

And ROCKIN’ as a Robin:

Does this make it a trendy bird? (Combining hippo and bird shapes)

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. Next week I will continue with some “chic” birds!

A Beacon

Today’s weird bird has a lighthouse beak that is a beacon for shore birds…

I hope this patchwork of imagination gives you a smile that lights your face!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!!
