I've been taking Brave Girls Art School Wing sessions these past few weeks. We are learning how to paint/collage/doodle and stitch, birdies, butterflies and wings. Sooo much fun.
I was getting tired of painting pretty girl portraits and needed a change of pace. Faces are still my passion but it's good thing to do something else.
The two small doodle birdies above are painted with the watercolor crayons on canvas with black ink pens. They are on small 4x4 canvas and so easy to manage. I think these will make great gifts.
This is my collaged birdie made totally with scrapbook papers and lots of doodling. Love my little hummingbird and love, love, love the bright colors.
This last one is my painted birdie. I love his little tail! I used molding paste for the border to give some texture.
The stitching lessons are fun and not sure if I'll do any of them right now. I learned most of the stitches when I was little. My mom embroydered and taught me all of that. The idea of making my own designs and then stitching on a pillow or whatever is really fresh.
I love taking these art workshops online. I wish I could take them all. I guess I gotta go sell more stuff in my Etsy shop, but not today....there is always tomorrow.
