Building A Wardrobe

Today’s weird bird is part Canadian Warbler from this photograph:

I then had fun building a wardrobe for a Warbler using an old dress pattern:

And some of my Gelli Plate printed papers for outfits:

Which “style” is most becoming on this wild Warbler?

A new twist on “paper dolls!” Lol

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

P.S. I’m sure you will see this Warbler again in a future post!

Fiddle-Faddle

One never knows what will inspire me to create a weird bird…

It was a doodle on a grocery list today!

That inspired this little bird:

What do YOU think I should name it? Perhaps Marty?

He looks a little extra green and Martian like…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday and Doodling!

Cheers! 😃

A Humdinger!

I found myself humming a Tom Petty song while shopping at the grocery store yesterday…

The song seemed to be stuck in my head! Does this ever happen to you?

It was my inspiration for today’s weird bird:

It is a Humdinger!

I hope your Wednesday’s a winner!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

The Lederhosen Bird

This weird bird is a little late to the party…

Oktoberfest was celebrated in Munich between September 17 and October 3 this year!

But The Lederhosen bird is always ready to celebrate!

Did you know that lederhosen or “leather breeches” were worn as traditional garments in some regions of German-speaking countries? Formerly, they were worn for hard work but today are mostly worn as leisurewear.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

And Happy Fall! The leaves are changing amazing colors and the days have been extra sunny and warm in the Pacific Northwest where I live.

I have been spending as much time as possible outdoors… before the days get colder.

Do you have a favorite season? I hope you share it with me! 😃

Some Brero Bird

Today’s weird bird is wearing a sombrero…

He is some Brero bird, don’t you think?! haha

I have decided to take a summer siesta from my weird birds and work on some other art projects. I look forward to sharing them with you!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

Bird Watchers

I discovered two weird bird watchers when I was watching birds at the lake last weekend…

One was high on a branch with his binoculars close by:

The other was well hidden and appeared to be wearing a disguise!

At least he had his camera ready!

I saw several “normal” birds too! All in one day…

2 Rufous Hummingbirds

4 Blue Jays

4 geese and their fuzzy goslings

1 Cooper’s Hawk

It was a successful bird watching day, I’d say!

Happy Weird Bird Watching Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

P.S. I’d love to hear what birds you see today!

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!

Made In The Shade

My garage sale was this last weekend…

And I survived! Hooray!

We had 3 lamps for sale and none of them sold so it inspired me to create today’s weird bird:

Yes, it is made in the shade…

Wearing a lamp shade! Haha!

Or perhaps, it is a shady character:

Whatever shade of blue this is…

I hope my silly bird gives you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃

Bird On A Tin

I have collected many (TOO MANY) things…

So I decided to have a garage sale.

This has proven to be a very exhausting endeavor. I am looking forward to being done in two weeks!

A side note: Above is a photo of the dolls, Ken and Barbie which I think you are familiar with but do you remember, “Nurse Julia?” She is on the right, from the TV show in 1969? I know I am dating myself here! Lol! (She is retired so she is not wearing her nurse outfit… haha)

All this cleaning has left me with no room in my brain for art at the moment.

So I leave you this bird on a tin from one of my MANY thrift store finds:

Wishing you a happy Wednesday free of clutter!

Cheers! 😃

A Blustery Day…

We have been having a lot of wind lately…

It inspired me to create this weird bird:

Sometimes a good scribble feels good on a blustery day!

What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Rain or shine or wind… I wish you a happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 😃
