sorting through my paper stash i found an old watercolour from way back......i was looking for something to try out these bird shapes on.
i drew the shape onto a cardboard biscuit box,......cut it out.....
originally i was going to use the back side as the right way up, the paint had seeped through to the back of the paper forming speckles....
which side do you prefer?
i stuck a bit of blutack on the back & put them on a wall (a newly painted white wall that looks grey today as it was raining) for the final photos.
they could hang from a ribbon or string from the ceiling or in front of a window, & all kinds of paper or cardboard could be used to make them.
also different sizes & shapes could work well together.
the lesson to myself : don't be afraid to cut things up.
no-one will see them packed away in the paper stash, bring them out & try something different, after all it's only paint on paper!
do you cut up your art for other projects?
i hope i have inspired you to try making these easy peasy birds! if so post some & let me know in the comments, i love to see what you make too.
