Theme; Challenge The Three Muses / "BIRDS OF A FEATHER"
Because I didn't have enough time last week (again pfffjoei) to participate, i've made this week TWO totaly different entries.
*****
With the first one I tried to create a Japanese style and used pigeons.
Not that pigeons are my favorite birds !...on the contrary, I find it "trouble-shooters" ROEKOEOEO ROEKOEOEEE SPLASHHH
but I found a few exciting postcards representing all kind of sorts.
After what "ge-freubel" it turned out quite similar as PSP crafters often create.

My second entry is based on a style that I found surfing in a French (online) encyclopaedia. I'ts more a vintage collage style with rear drawings and images.
When you Click to enlarge this FRENCH SAMPLES then you know what I mean. Inspiring ins't it ?

And this is how I have tried to immitate with OWLS

Two very different and beautiful collages- brilliant art ( and I love the owls)!

indybev zei

The first collage is so delicate, airy and beautiful. I love it! The little owls are enchanting as well. Thanks for sharing your many talents, Rian!

Ozstuff zei

Rian, both pictures are superb. You have really captured the Japanese look with the first one. It is so beautifully delicate. The owls collage is wonderful. I love it.
Good to see you back with TWO pictures. We are getting two masterpieces for the price of one!

Diane zei

These are all wonderful and creative, but I have to say that I LOVE your owls!!

Rian - For the gold dress on the cockatoo I painted in my Art Rage software which has a metallic paint feature and metallic sparkles which I used to cover the shape. The sparkles "fizz" and throw up the odd silver piece which adds to the sparkle. Art Rage is a fairly cheap download (by Ambient Design) and it has other very interesting features as well - such as a great palette knife which blends and adds to the oily textures.

Love the first one immensely! It does have an asian appearance. Really gorgeous.

Betzie zei

Prachtige collage.
Mooie achtergrond.

Ellen zei

I do love your second one, gorgeous owls.

the first one is clever, how you manage to effortles get a certain style is beyond me . But must say it's just not you.

Trisha zei

It is amazing to see the two different styles that you made, they are so different from each other and beautiful. Thanks for the kind comments on my blog and yes, that is my house. I bought it a couple years ago and have been working on it since then. It certainly didn't look like that when I bought it. :)

Astrid Maclean zei

Both pieces are so dfferent, yet both are delightful. Your skills will never fail to amaze me!

These are both stunning Rian - you are so clever and your imagination knows no bounds!

Rosie zei

Oooohhh Rian!! Although pigeons can be pretty, they are really horrid birds, aren't they?! Your collage makes them very beautiful... and then I love the owls and the atmosphere of the second collage - very french vintage!! =)
