I let procrastination get the best of me this afternoon during the kids’ naptime. I should have been doing a million other things, but Julia’s watercolors caught my eye, and in just a matter of ten minutes I had these cute little birdies.
You just make a blob of watercolor, and then use permanent marker to embellish the birdie details. I might try to make a few more and frame one for Julia’s room since she has two imaginary friends, Birdie and Cooa, who, as you may have guessed, just happen to be birds. I think she’ll be tickled.
Giving credit where credit is due, I found the idea on Pinterest, which referred me to Elvie Studio, which referred its readers to Le Lapin Dans la Lune. Don’t you just love the internet? Thanks, real artists, for posting your ideas for amateurs like me to play with and enjoy. Making these made my day!
