Art on a Book Page and a Tangle



Do-Something-Everyday, August 22, 2014

For this round, Try it on Tuesday invites its participants to create an art using Book Pages. I painted this hoopoe on an old torn book page. I prepped the paper by applying a light layer of absorbent ground and then painted the bird using watercolors. 

Also linked to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Kristen and Eve for hosting.

The one below is my response to this week's challenge at I am the Diva which was to use the tangle ING. This tile came about quite accidentally. I was de-cluttering the kitchen cabinets when I came upon full box of unused coffee filters. These filters were in brown color and I was reluctant to throw them out. While taking a break from cleaning, I sat by the dining table and created this tile. I used a black gel pen and pencil.


Thanks for visiting.

  1. How clever to find such a use for coffee filters. They would probably be good for water coloring on as well. I love your Ing border on your interestingly shaped "tile". Your bird is really nice too!
