This week I went in a little different direction with my watercoloring…
Wanting to loosen up and just create FUN like my artsy bloggin’ buddies, Laura at CreateArtEveryDay and Jill at JillsArtJournal, I poked around on Pinterest and found some super fun work by Lucia at StressieCat. Such unique, original, crazy, zany, whimsy! I used Lucia’s inspiration to draw and paint this first crazy green and purple polka-dotted bird. You should check out her blog – crazy awesome talent! Mine turned out nothing like hers, but I still kinda like it.
And any card that has a crazy green and purple-polka dotted bird on it naturally needs some green birdie doo doo on the inside! Right?
Then I made this other silly guy from a photo I saw that stuck in my head, but I’ve lost the source (since I did it over two days – starting one evening and letting the base dry and polka-dotting the next day). It was a paper mache bird, but I thought I’d recreate it in watercolor and for a card. I just tore off a piece of watercolor paper and went to town.
I really had fun making these silly guys, and this green one is already on its way to a friend who is celebrating a birthday this week. He’s a pretty great guy – so he even gets a Superman stamp!
Have some fun today – and EVERY day!
Cheers & Hugs,
