Painted Paper Owls

Painted Paper Owls

This project used many fun painting techniques. The students enjoyed painting  the paper. It did get a bit hectic. Students were at different steps in the project at times. In the end it turned out WONDERFUL!

I became inspired by seeing a drawing I pinned on Pinterest. It came from a neat website. I am very taken by owls this school year. A bit obsessed I must say.

The painted paper techniques included
the background - rubbing alcohol and watercolors
owls - marbling, markers with water sprayed on them to bleed, Epsom salt and watercolors, tissue paper and a spray bottle to bleed, and sponging.

The tree limb was crayon and watercolors for a crayon resist.
