Rabbits, Balloons and A Feather

You will be seeing a lot of rabbits and bunnies from me this year!

Carla Sonheim’s year-long online class is The Year of the Rabbit.

It is my goal to spend 10 minutes each day, drawing a rabbit!

Hot Air Balloons:

I recently completed this 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle. I just love how colorful it is!

A feather I doodled with black Micron pens:

I kind of messed up on the top so I glued a piece of paper over it! Ha! And drew on top of the paper.

I like how the pencil shading adds dimension:

Do you have any creative goals this year? I hope you will share them with me!

Happy Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

The Map Of A Feather

I have been Gelli-Plate printing on old travel maps with fluid acrylics.

Today, I am sharing a feather from a weird bird!

I thought you might want to see my creative process for my feather.

First, I cut out 2 shapes from a Gelli-printed map and glued them into my journal. (I’m using an old map of Seattle, Washington)

Next, I used tracing paper to create a pattern and draw the shape of my feather:

I cut out the individual pieces of tracing paper and used other Gelli-printed papers to make my feather shape.

I positioned the pieces in my journal before I glued them to my paper.

I wonder what kind of weird bird has this feather, any guesses?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!
