How are you today??
I'm doing well...other than a little back pain, I've been working
outside, outside, outside!!
Spring is definitely here!
It's breezy in the low 80's
& I have to be out there.
That's the main reason I've been away..
You see not long from now
the temperatures will be holding steady at
so....taking advantage of this cooler temperature is a must.
Yesterday I sat out in the tiny "backyard"of my gypsy wagon and
created a little project using some of
my awesome Lisa Kettell products.
It's simple and it's a little tribute
to this beautiful season.
unfinished china doll head
paper mache bird box
hot glue gun/glue sticks
acrylic paints: black, navy blue, medium blue, dark pink, light pink, orange, peach
oil pastels:dark brown, green, light pink, fuchsia, peach
red lace trim
paint canvas dark blue
add a bit of light blue for interest.
using the oil pastels, draw branches and flowers
paint china doll head peach, add facial details and hair color
cut the top part of the bird off
paint dark pink, orange and light pink.
Hot glue china doll head to bird body
add lace trim
hot glue to the canvas
paint feet on with light pink paint.
There's a lot of different things that can be done
with this one...
she could be a raven for Halloween, or a dove for Easter
her body can be covered over in sheet music
or she can placed in a little cage...
there's endless possibilities1
I hope you try this out & have loads of fun.
for a happy inspired day:)
