In a way, they remind me of the Woodstock logo. If you live under a rock and don't know about Woodstock, google it.
Draw a simple bird and a simple leaf, and off you go to add them to the leg of your jeans, or your t-shirt, or whatever.
Sparkle 21TM: Copper, Night, Strawberry, Blueberry, Leaf
Pair of jeans, or other garment of your choice
Chalk pencil, tracing paper, pencil
your bird and leaf drawings, birds should be 3-4 inches in size
1. Trace bird onto tracing paper. Retrace lines with chalk pencil. Turn chalk side down, rub back of paper to transfer lines. Transfer three birds as shown. Transfer leaves in the same way wherever you want them placed.
2. Make a horizontal branch for each bird with copper glitter.
3. Fill in the birds with Strawberry or Blueberry. Make the eyes and legs Night.
4. Add a single leaf on a stem as desired on each branch.
Make more birds or more leaves as you are moved.
Turn on some Hendrix or Joplin or Country Joe and the Fish, as you are designing and painting for some inspiration.
I am really enjoying this retro groove.
