Playing with paper, inspired by other LC paper crafters, and because one of my friends liked the bird doll and birdfish… Encouraged along the way and free advices given from my LC friends as I turned the “dolls” into art
“Fancy Song Bird”
All together in simple black frames:
More info (mostly for me 'cause I like reminders ):
They are each 5" x 7", I had planned on them being 4" x 6" and just gave them a wider border that was going to be partially covered by the frame mats, buuuut I liked them better without the white mats so I framed them that way.
The borders are solid gelli print masterboards cut to size and an opening cut from the middle. The birds came from an old book and the (new) bodies were made from gelli print masterboards and I used ink around the edges. I fussy-cut the white around each one for these pieces. The white helps them “pop” from the backgrounds. I used watercolors to paint book pages for the main background papers. The “Fancy Song Bird” is on a green background and the two “Birdfish” are on blue (it looks more blue in real life).
Thanks for looking!
