Great tits and Blue tits - newspaper pages.

These are visitors to our garden too - and we have fledgeling blue tits in the bird house right now!
Another page for my book of garden birds
Created the same way as the others - 10 pieces of newspaper glued together and painted with a mixture of acrylic paints. 

 
Over-stamped with acrylic paint.  Image printed onto white paper, painted with water colours, and the birds and twigs painted with a mixture of water colours and acrylic paints.


Another page tomorrow

I've enjoyed looking at the covers and the pages you've done so far Lottie, it's a beautiful book and I'm sure the birds would approve of the use of "found materials" to make a home for them! The painting on this image is particularly gorgeous, well done!

Wonderful painting! You've captured the cheeky little bluetits perfectly. I love to watch them in the garden, they seem such cheerful little birds.
