Birds of a Feather

38 Comments

Regardless the country you live in – you have probably heard the saying birds of a feather flock together. Well, today I want to show you my flock. The art of my flock. Because every single person in my flock is special and deserves recognition. I am referring to my FB group Tangle All Around. Yes, you hear me talk about them all the time. Because they are that awesome! For the past two weeks we have been tangling feathers. I want to show you all the ones they gave me permission to share. It’s a long post and definitely worth your time. I promise!

And that’s it. Weren’t they all beautiful? Some things to notice. There are all levels of tangling expertise represented. Beginners, more skilled and advanced. Everyone starts somewhere. Some feathers were black ink on white paper, one was white ink on black paper, many were in color. Some feathers were created on fancy watercolor paper, some on mixed media paper, some in journals or sketchbooks. Several were created on whatever the artist had on hand at the moment. You really can tangle anywhere with whatever supplies you have on hand. You don’t have to spend a lot of money in this art form. You can use whatever you have. Even if it is a pencil or a pen or a stick drawing in the dirt. It all works. And it is all magnificent.

Do you need a flock? A tangle flock? I would love to have you come join our FB group Tangle All Around and you can do that by clicking this link. You will need to answer three simple questions so I can tell you are a real live breathing person and not a computer hacking machine. Hahaha! The struggle is real, folks. But seriously, if you are even the slightest bit interested in the art style, come check us out. You will love my flock!

  4. Extremely talent artist. Fantastic Feather designs, both in Ink an Watercolour. Each artist has there own unique style which is lovely to see what one can create with a great patterns. Congrats to all who had to opportunity to be on Alice’s post. Doodle art I find is one of the most miss understood or exception in the area I live. I’ve stepped outside the box into a new concept of Doodle Art as I’m sure Artists like yourself have done. Continue Doodling for a beautiful peace of mind an enjoyment. Everyone have a enjoyable day. From Ontario Canada, we’re finally getting summer. Better late than never. Ha Ha Ha
