I guess by now you are wondering what I am up to! Well DD and Miss Emily will be home on Feb. 11th and I have been cleaning and getting the room ready for the arrival.
My daughter has owls for the motif in Emily's bedroom and while mine is alright I thought I would bump up the decor. lol So for the last couple of days in between cleaning sessions I have made several paper owls for the area around the crib (which we just bought for little Miss.)
So would you like a trip down fantasy lane? Suspend Reality cause these owls are just a little quirky, just like me!
Here you go!
I took various dinner and luncheon and snack plates and used them to draw a circle. Then I cut into the top of the circle to make the "ears". I used the 1 1/4" circle punch and the 1' circle and a smaller punch to make the eyes. I used various pieces of DSP for the added interest to the owls. I free handed the tree and also the greenery. I sponged the greenery with Always Artichoke ink to make the edges stand out. The wings and feet for the owls are the largest scallop circle punch! I am going to add a few "bushes" and maybe some punched out animals. Have to see how much time it takes lol.
Here is another owl. Too cute! I used the largest square punch to make the beak. I cut the square in half and that made a triangle. I bent the beak in half and it is now three D. Love them.. So dang cute!
I got a little crazy and over the top for this large tree. I sponged and added some flowers and butterflies. There are a couple of little owls made with the Owl Builder punch. I did the tree Free hand. I sponged and added some dimension by cutting another layer of greenery and using dimensionals to make them pop. I used the new smaller butterfly punch and the large butterfly punch for the butterflies. Right now it looks so cute I smile every time I think of Carrie's reaction. I know I'm nuts! But as my dad used to say " It's a nice nuts".
Don't forget you can click on the pictures to see them up close!
Oh, almost forgot this one. She is a darling and so much fun to make!
Now I do have a couple of cards for you today. I finally settled on my Feb. thank you cards for those of you who placed an order with me, either on line or in a class. I sometimes struggle with these because I want them to be simple (cause I have to make so many of them lol) yet a little different so you can get an idea of something for you to recreate. So here are some of February's cards. I have them done in all different colors. So pretty!!
Just a couple for now! Don't want to crowd everything!
I used the Brights package of Designer paper and the 2 1/2" circle punch, the curly label punch and I cut the T out free hand. Gee I wish they would make a punch for this alphabet set! I would probably use it more! This card is done with Tempting Turquoise.
So that's my post for today, Thanks for dropping by today!
High flying hugs!
