Watercolor Collage

Happy Monday!  On Saturday, I painted with watercolor and created a variety of patterns then cut up pieces to make a floral sun. I enjoy this art making  method because of the many surprises of mixing the different patterns  and shapes.

Fabric Illustration

Greetings – I’ve been gone for a few days, so I’m posting a few pieces of art making from the archives. Back to the drawing table this week.

The elephant made from a paper bag/ fabric and the gargoyle is made from fabric with some Photoshop enhancements.

Draw a Bird Day

Good Morning – I don’t always make the 8th of the month for Draw a Bird Day, but today I have two birds to share.

Watercolor and watercolor pencil… House Sparrow

I received a catalog in the mail for window treatments, so I used the different patterns for the a dandy collage bird.

Agave Paper Collage

Greetings….Today’s offering is a paper collage. I used the beautiful papers, Jill Kuhn designed for me, here is the post about our designed papers. My sewing machine was used to to outline the Agave and add texture to the background. These days the sewing machine is used for art purposes and an occasionally clothing repair only. Have a creative day!

Handmade Collage Paper Collaboration

Recently, Jill Kuhn at https://artjillkuhn.wordpress.com and I decided to create some collage papers to share with each other. We each made a variety of designs and exchanged them by mail.

I have always admired Jill’s use of paper collage in the wonderful art work she produces. I’m so inspired by her sense of humor, creative process and the techniques she shares with all of us. Thanks Jill, for joining me with this fun and inspirational project.

On Wednesday, Jill always post a comical bird using collage techniques. We decided to share our new papers and we would both design our own “Wacky Bird”.

It’s Dance Night in the City…
