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…”
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.”
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!
