Watercolour Bird on Old Sheet Music

The library I work at has been throwing out some old novels and sheet music (see the Tree painted on an old Sherlock Holmes story in a different post below!).

I thought the paper was so beautiful it needed to be re-purposed. I have started experimenting with watercolours for the first time, and thought a little birdy might go nicely with the sheet music…

I’ll definitely have to do some more and get it just right (I want a more opaque bird for starters), but for now – here’s my first attempt 🙂IMG_1538© Michelle De Aizpurua and MissyCartoons 2015

Old Pages and a Tree

Experimenting with ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’

I saw a tree like this somewhere on the internet, and it really caught my eye.. added a little red bird and Im super happy with it!

Think ill try a few more things with old book pages, I just love them 🙂
