The original owl was taken from Close To My Heart but my pin leads to nowhere so I can't link you to where I found it, it may have been on our Consultant page.
Anyways here they are and please excuse the photographs. The weather is really gloomy so lighting was nil. Then I made the owls a bit glossy making using the flash a frustration. Somethings look better in person, lol.
Size may be deceiving. The base under the owls is a 12X12 card stock. The original project that I was basing mine on was just the 12x12 size canvas, but I had trouble finding inexpensive 12x12 canvas so I purchased bigger and added the embellishments to the sides.
The pieced owl was done free hand so don't go searching for the template like I did at first. You can do it! The embellishments or "yo yo's" were made using the Artiste cartridge from Close To My Heart. Paper used was Elemental which is discontinued, I had bought it early last year for this project. I dry embossed the 12x12 backing by scoring lines then sanding the raised area. The beak and wings were adhered using foam tape to give them height.
I added some stamp distressing to the canvas. Wanted something other than just a white background.
These little cuties are going on my baby's room walls in a month or so. Yay!
