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?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

The Spectacle Bird

I speculate…

The spectacular,

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…”

IMG_2179

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! 🙂

Vim And Vigor

Vim out on a limb…

Looking slim!

Reminds me of  Vigor  Tim,

Who has been to the gym…

Pumping iron to stay trim!

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…

Ha!  A bird has a built-in “feather duster!”

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Starlings Java

I wonder if a bird drank KAWF-ee …

Would it order it to go from the “fly-by” window at Starbucks Starlings Java?

IMG_1375

Would it order one shot of expresso or two?

I suppose that would depend on the species of bird…

“I’ll take a Tall, Skinny, Half-Decaf, No-Whip Mocha, please!”

How do you like your coffee?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday! 🙂

P.S.  I enjoyed reading your responses for my dancing bird last Wednesday!  I got my boot off my foot and I can start wearing a shoe again!  Hoorah!!  A good reason to dance!  🙂

Pink Phlox

My hubby gave me an Easter bouquet with pink Phlox which got me thinking about flocks of birds…

IMG_1115

Imaginary birds that is!

I love the “phlox” in this photo too:

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!  I hope this gives you a smile today!

The Karnowski Bird

Spokane fans were disappointed on Monday, when the Gonzaga Bulldogs lost in a close game with the North Carolina Tar Heels at the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  The final score was 71-65.

It was an exciting game and we are proud of the “Zags” for their outstanding performance during these games.

In honor of the team, I have created the Karnowski bird for one of the star players, Przemek Karnowski:

As you can see in this photo of him below that he has a beard.  My upside down version of my bird shows that his beard is basketball players from the dictionary illustration of the word, basketball:

I have not created a bearded bird before… only a bearded fish, that you can find here.

Happy Weird Beard (Bird) Wednesday!

Cheers!  🙂

The Hoppy Bird

I have been “hopping” around the house recovering from foot surgery.  I have a new appreciation for walking with two feet!

I have a “knee walker” which is like a scooter to move around the house so I don’t have to put weight on my left foot.  This would be a lot more fun if I didn’t have foot surgery! My foot is wrapped in gauze and a bandage that I am not supposed to remove until I get my stitches out in about 10 days.

I can only walk on my heel of my foot boot which has 3 Velcro straps to attach to my foot.  Velcro is an awesome invention except when it sticks to everything BUT where you want it to stick!  Especially when you need to use the bathroom rather quickly… lol! 😉

I am starting to hop around in my boot more with a cane for balance because the scooter is starting to become less fun to maneuver.

I was encouraged to see the word, “hop” was next to the word, “hope” in the children’s dictionary for today’s weird bird.

I am hopeful that surgery will help me to enjoy walking again in time!  Thank you for all your good wishes and prayers for my recovery!

Hoppy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!  🙂
