Sound the horn...introducing Regal Tweets by Ms. Ruin! I will be creating a series of wooden birds just like the first two in this series and all of them will be up for purchase in my Etsy Shop. Regal Tweets are perfect for your desk, coffee table, book shelf and make perfect inspiration gifts for just about anyone, including yourself. ;) So stay tuned, these little tweets need a home and I will be showcasing them soon in Ms. Ruin's Playthings Etsy Shop. Lets take a look at the first two tweets in the series. Oh, but before we get started, lets look at "the before"...
Do you see nothing, or do you see possibility?? I see possibility! So this is how the Regal Tweets start out, nice and plain.
And this is what they become when I am through with them. This is the very first Regal Tweet in the series and this little fella dreams in numbers. He was created with metal reactive paints and patina. His crown is made of chipboard and covered in gold adirondack paint. The numbers are stamped and so is the word "DREAMER".
The second Regal Tweet was also created with reactive paints and patina. I used iron on this little guy. I gave him an eye which was actually a metal brad, and a really cool crown because otherwise he would just be a tweet. I also added the wood blocks that spell the word fly.
Again, the illusion of texture meets the dimension of the letter blocks.
Thanks so much for looking --I hope to be creating more tweets for this series in the near future. Stay tuned...
