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?

A Letter Day

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

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

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:

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…”

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!

Cheers! 🙂

Cold Soup

I’m not a big cold soup fan, how about you?

Yet, I’m kind of fond of this weird bird, Gazpacho!

And his cousin, the Bottle bird:

Of course I had to try a bird (or two) with yesterday’s staple method… Perhaps those houses were for the birds!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Hope I gave you a smile today!  Cheers! 🙂

A Celebration!

Today we lift our beakers earthenware jugs… Celebrating Weird Bird Wednesday!

I have been posting a weird bird almost every Wednesday for over a year!  Thank you Harold for introducing the idea!  And thanks to ALL of you, my flock of followers!  😉

I decided to post the prehistoric “Beaker Bird” since it was wearing a cone-shaped beaker hat for the occasion.

During prehistoric times, the Beaker Bird’s beak (try saying that three times fast!) was about the size of a large Cadillac… But as time evolved, its beak shortened to the size of a Mini Cooper.

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!  Cheers! 🙂

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! 🙂

Toucan Dan can balance a can bowl with a fish while spinning a dish…
