Put a bird on it...

Last Sunday I had fun arting with Leslie again. Of course we played with gelli plates for a while (like I need more backgrounds, oh but I do!) then we made some bird inspired things. I made a post card for the MMSA post card swap coming up which she kindly scanned for me. Still working on how to make my scanner show true colors better or I would be working on that if I had a moment of free time to do so!

Gelli plate printed background, cut out collaged pieces from an idea in a book Leslie had by Roxanne Padgett titled "Acrylic Techniques", postage stamp, washi tape, pens, circle inked from (you will never guess this....) a piece of baby bottle nipple that Leslie had, cupcake wrapper for crest, and other miscellaneous paint/inks.

  1. I love your post's awesome! Try putting your card or any other art in PIXLR express found online and darken it then use the saturation tool....and's fun!! You can change the colors completely or adjust it to the true color!! It's fast too!!

  2. You and Leslie seem to have so much fun on your art days! Lucky you! This is such a fun bird - I love the whimsy of it.....and who doesn't need more gelli prints?!

  3. This came out really fun! Somebody in the swap will love it.
