The Cincinnati zoo suffered a terrible loss this month. Our beautiful 3 month old giraffe Zuri. Read more here-
Animals can bring us great joy and an abundance if inspiration. Just like my love for birds, animal print is always a fabulous spring board of creativity. This week I created my tribute to Zuri.....of course in a fashionable way :)
This is my card print version. I like to create a version that can be used on cards. I will digitally add the text and create a print to mount on 5x7 cards. Perfect to frame, and send.
The original is still in the works. I stopped here to photograph for the card, but will continue to work on this until I have a piece that is hang ready.
I also want to point out this was adapted from a project in Julie Nutting's book Collage Couture. Great book, I highly recommend!
I also added text to my peacock piece, but you will need to stay turned for that one! I'm creating a themed card set, so check back!

One of my favorite birds. The majestic beauty of these enchanting creatures captivate me. I'm surprised of the popularity of owls, they seem boring in comparison, but are still interesting in their own right......but my favorite.....the peacock!
I love the colors. Jewel tones. Deep teal, blue, gold and a touch of tangerine. Perfect for a gala....a gown.....a show stopping dress.
I created the peacock in watercolor, as well as the bodice of the dress. From there, the "tail" was pieced in print paper, and painted again. The background is layer on layer of different paints and textures.
I sprayed additional tail feathers, to give this an ethereal look.
Detail work in gold.
