Chicks are fun to do. Actually, all these animals have been fun, but the chicks have been super easy. Two circles just about does it. The hardest part is getting the eyes right. One of my little guys looks a bit like Groucho Marx. I accidentally went a little too heavy on the eyebrows.
These little babies were made on canvas using lots of gesso, heavy bodied paint, paint, stencils, pen, ink and some book paper mixed with twine. I untwisted the 3-ply twine into individual strands to add to the nests. Oh, and I had a ton of fun using my crackle paint that I never use. I kind of dug that and have already used it on another project and I foresee many more in the future.
There's that book paper and twine. Lots of decoupage adhesive was used to create that.
The eggs went through many changes. I think that I painted them 3 times before I was happy. Then I had to stencil them.
How can you not just love this little guy?
I have a lot of stamps. This one I love.
Yes, there is a double meaning.
