More art!!! Continuing with the fun of creating art on coasters, I used 5 coasters with more fabric collaged birds. Then they wanted to land on branches so I used a birch board for my canvas, creating lots of texture with some molding paste and acrylic paint. After deciding where the birds would go, I then painted the branches.
I also added a quote from Victor Hugo:
"Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings all the same knowing she has wings." I love this, it speaks to me of the necessity of knowing your own strength despite the world's challenges.
Then to add more whimsy and interest, I added the bead strings with a wooden egg covered in dictionary paper, and some feathers and twigs. Edging the sides of the birch board, I used some fabric strips just for interest from a side view.
Fun and more ways to use these free coasters in my art! ta for now
Here's a close up.
