Art Journal Journey Birds

 Hi Everyone, I wanted to make one more journal page for AJJ's theme this month of birds.

   I did a watercolor practice of an oriole, that I wasn't totally impressed with, but I was thinking it would blend in nicely with a collage. I also used India black ink.

  In my paper stash I found a calendar page I had saved-perfect-cut that to size for my journal book, added my watercolor oriole, and I wanted a third bird, so looking in my stash found a page that had lots of images that looked like stamps-found the turkey. I liked the colors of the turkey for this page and it was the third element



Black India ink watered down for different shades


You may notice on the top of the background page to the right of bluebird, I covered up the hole for the calendar  with a piece of that beige area-but added it going a different way the rest of that background


From the bottom scrap of paper that was left over, I cut off the piece of the side that is under the oriole painting-give it a little texture and interest



If you are celebrating - enjoy the Holiday weekend, the rain and storms here will finally stop on Friday and turn quite hot-perfect for all of those crazy boaters that will arrive haha

  4. What a great page, Kathy! This one is definitely one of my favorites. It's looking like we will be having a week of beautiful sunny weather, so bring on the boaters! I think it would be fun just to sit back and watch.

    1. Yes once the weekend is here we will jump right up to summer temps sun and no storms-perfect for all of the boaters--it will be bonkers here this long weekend though many opening up their summer homes and do to all the storms we have had more will be here.
      It is fun to watch them but this weekend will just be craziness
      thank you about my page, I really like this one too, and my oriole painting looks better here too

  11. I really like how you added your oriole to the page. It came out great and I actually thought it was printed on the page, not drawn and added by you until I looked closely at the finished page. You made a pretty picture even prettier. Thanks for sharing this with us at AJJ for Matilde's challenge. Enjoy your weekend Kathy. Hugs-Erika

  14. Sorry I'm late visiting. I have been offline since Thursday due to a lightening strike, which also took out my computer. I like how you added the additional birds to the original image. This is great and you drew a great bird, too. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey using Matilde's theme.
