Creativity is Contagious!!

Sometimes it feels like my life never stops being crazy!! I I had a lot of crazy days in the last few weeks and this is totally reflected by these crazy birds ... There were a couple of fun bird doodles in my sketchbook and I just had to get them onto a canvas for my favorite store design team ... Eclectic Paperie!

 I started with a square of scrap wood and some clear gesso.   

I covered the board with tissue paper ....

Then I changed my mind and went with a completely different background!! I covered the whole thing with blue and white paint.  Then I took out a circle stencil and added some texture!

I cut out some practice size/spacing pieces.  I have ruined way too many great pieces of fun paper by cutting the wrong size.  So I really do cut out rough shapes from plain or scrap paper first!!

After I cut out the paper, I painted the birds ...

Doodles, rub-ons and highlights finish off this crazy project!! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!!  Make sure to swing by the Eclectic Paperie so that you can pick up this absolutely adorable paper from Echo Park!!
