Something to Crow About!

Recently, I got to play art with two of my favorite art teacher friends Linda and Shawny.  We found fun crows at the dollar store and decided to alter them.  We all started with a steampunk theme, but each of them turned out completely different, but totally cute, of course! 
This is Linda's crow.  She attached swirls of rusted wire and copper toned gears with rusted nails.  The crow's body is made of styrofoam so it is easy to push into for attaching.  I love how the rust color looks with the black feathers of the crow! And that head piece is amazing!
This is my crow I made for my art group a while ago.  He wanted to get in on the photo shoot, even though he wasn't made at this art party!  I used black and white papers to embellish and attached him to a box which holds a secret nest inside! (shhh...)

This is Shawny's crow.  She added flowers, gears, rusted nails and wires.  I love how she wrapped the wire around the beak and feet.  She gave a feminine touch to her crow with the flowers and a feathery head piece. 
This is my crow created at the party.  I decided to use pink rickrack and feathers.  I used silver gears and black nails.  I also added a silver crown, a steampunk sash and black clock hands. He is definitely ready for an art party!

Psst!...Are you a crow lover like me?
You can see more crow art here and here!
