Bird Houses

2012 November 8


Hey guys,

Thought I’d share my birdhouse page.  Still practicing my sketching and drawing and in the process am using up some old – really old –  rub ons and butterfly stickers.

Of course I was so tuned into sketching then coloring the bird houses that I completely forgot to color my background. Once the gesso was dry I obviously was more focused on drawing the houses.  Oh well, I did go over lightly with a bit of color.

The quote was printed on my printer, then cut apart and added to the page.  It says: “A man is not where he lives but where he loves” Latin Proverb.





The important thing?  I had fun and as the old saying goes…. practice makes perfect, right?

I haven’t had the time to check out all the challenge blogs (you know, with no laptop, waaahaaaa) but did find a couple:

Crafty Creations #195:  No Flowers

Flutter By Wednesdays #212:  Anything Goes must include a butterfly or fairy. 

Well gang, that does it for me.  Thanks for stopping by, until next time……

    OH.MY.GOODNESS.   Your birdhouses are GORGEOUS!!!  I am SO happy you forgot to color the background.  It sets off your amazing sketches. My favorite is the blue one and I love the quote.  Apples from before are really lovely, too.  Keep at it, Micki.  You are blessed with talent and I feel blessed that you share and inspire me.  Happy Weekend!
