The different faces of owls...

I have to start today's post with a gushing THANK YOU! I am thrilled many of you like Wise Owl. Being in the forums last night was amazing--your kind words and excitment left me speechless. I can hardly wait to see what you create with Wise Owl.
One thing that really stood out was one of the forum posters said "You could turn the owl body upside down and make a ghost". That is BRILLANT! You totally know I am going to try that out.

Yesterday I posted THIS photo.

Along with the many combinations of faces, bellies, beaks, feet and wings you also have the task of deciding how you are going to dress up your owls.



Technique: Gamsol and Koh-i-noor Woodless Colour Pencils (Gina K sells these AWESOME pencils)



Technique: Paper Piecing the belly, using glossy accents by Ranger on the eyes.



Technique: Liquid Pearls



Product: brads used as sunglasses,



Technique: 2 step stamping (solid over patterned stamp)
Product: pearls for the eyes



Product: beads



Product: Glossy Accents (by Ranger) over the belly



Technique: Copic Colouring, stickles used as "eyeshadow"
Product: Flower centers (by Prima)



Product: Flock (Camel Flocking by Cornish Heritage Farms)
**You can add a lot more. I just added enough to cover the white. Typically I would add more than this.

Thanks again for your wonderful comments and support.
