Creating Art With Old Postage Stamps

9,703 Views
There are so many fun things to do with old postage stamps. I decided to create a bit of art for Spring.
I watered down three shades of blue paint and applied it to a canvas in a slip slap manner. Stroking a few times in one direction and then stroking the opposite direction while still wet. A touch of Coral was added in the corner for a hint of sunlight.
The branch was cut out using a Cricket machine and then stenciled on. Green stamps were used to make dimensional leaves.
I traced the bird shape on to poster board and glued the stamps down. After gluing the stamps I retraced the bird and cut it out.
I placed a brown stamp on the birds beak and feet.
These stamps were found in an old Dr's bag my sister had. Didn't have the heart to throw them out. So glad I didn't! The possibilities are endless!
