Bird painting and cheese box recycling - l'oiseau et la boite à fromage recyclée [ENG-Fr]

in art •  21 days ago

Hello Steeminions!

Today I'm going to show you what I did with a cheese box and how it now serves as a frame for a bird of our FancyKingdom ..


Bonjour les Steemignons !

Aujourd'hui je vais vous montrer ce que j'ai fait avec une boite à fromage et comment elle sert à présent de cadre à un oiseau de notre royaume de fantaisie ..😉


So here's the cute box that I used ... it's a delicious vegan cheese, half fig, half goji, hence its name mimi (mi figue, mi goji in french)

It comes from a brand new vegan grocery in Annecy, and I must say that I feasted with it, because yes, I had to eat before using the box 😄


Alors, voici la mignonne boite que j'ai utilisé...c'est un délicieux fromage vegan, mi figue,mi-goji, d'où son nom de mimi

Il provient d'une toute nouvelle épicerie végane à Annecy, et je dois dire que je me suis régalée avec celui-ci, car oui, il a bien fallu le manger avant d'utiliser la boite 😄


The first thing was to paint a layer of gesso on the box,

then I started my background with my water soluble pastels Neocolor II,
which I spread the pigments with a wet brush.


La première chose a été de passer une couche de gesso sur la boite,

puis j'ai commencé mon arrière plan avec mes pastels hydrosolubles Neocolor II,
dont j'ai étalé les pigments avec un pinceau humide.


Then I made some collages and I dropped drops of turquoise paint here and there 😊


Ensuite j'ai fait quelques collages et j'ai fait tomber des gouttes de peinture turquoise ça et là 😊


I drew my bird on a blank sheet, then colored it with pastels and with the felts to make the shadows


J'ai dessiné mon oiseau sur une feuille, puis l'ai coloré avec les pastels et avec les feutres pour effectuer les ombres


...cut and pasted it on my decorated cheese box and voilà !


... coupé et collé sur ma boîte à fromage décorée et le tour est joué!


Have a wonderful afternoon my Lovelies ! ^_^


Je vous souhaite une très belle soirée les amis ! ^_^

This is so wonderful and I WANT that cheese!

Since coming back to the USA I'm longing for good cheese. As soon as I get to the uk or/and eu I eat cheese and milk as it is SO good there. Here in the US we have to have pasteurized and all the cheese is bland in taste and can sometimes be rather waxy. Any really good imported cheese is VERY expensive here so I only get it sometimes.


This one was a vegan - dairy free cheese my dear 😉 Made from cashews, it is as tasty as a "normal" one, and believe me as I live in the part of France where most of the cheese are done..LoL
If you have non tasty cheese in the US, you should give a try to the vegan cheese that are really delicious 😉

That cheese container has become so much better looking now. That bird is so fat, dorky, and happy looking XD. I love your creativity.
