I made these three pieces as holiday gifts back in December 2017/January 2018. I think I posted them in that term of the Harry Potter craftalong but not anywhere else. I’m still proud of them, so now they get their own post.
The axolotl is an online coloring page image. Other materials: wooden spiral decorated with marker, scrapbook paper, and some thick cardboard for the base canvas.
The background is a colored-in abstract coloring book page. Crow was traced and cut from a template. Alas, my drawing skills were and are not that great I used adhesive foam squares painstakingly cut into smaller pieces to attach the crow and the word bubble to the main piece. The base canvas is thick cardstock glued to a larger piece of black felt to create a border/frame motif.
Acrylic paint on canvas. Octopus was traced from a template. The picture doesn’t show it, but I used glow in the dark paint to outline the octopus and accentuate the suckers and eyes.
What animals should I create art of next? I think a manatee would be a fun challenge.
