A few years ago, my sweet friend Heather bought this adorable hat for Charlotte. But her head is a bit too big for it now, and being blue and brown, someone else has inherited the hand me down, and he just looks as cute as can be in it!
The latest sketch at ScrapFriends had some feathers on it, and I recognized the design of the sketch to be similar to some Glitz papers I had from the new Finnley collection. Feathers=owls=perfect!
I love how the Glitz papers already look artsy...like I painted them! But all I did was layer them and splatter a bit of white mist on the background.
There are a bunch of papers layered behind the photo, and some die cuts and stickers layered on top. The largest feather is from the Finnley What Nots, and the smallest one is a wood veneer one that I borrowed from Jen at the last crop we were at together! I inked it blac and use a white pen for the spine. The medium sized feather I simply cut free hand from paper and then used lots of little slits along the edges to create the feathery look. I used a white pen down the middle of it, too!
I always try to balance my colors and elements on the page, so you will see the emerald green rhinestone in the top left, the same green "adorable" sticker on the photo, and the little green heart on the bottom right.
I added a bit of string behind the photo for some more texture and a little bit of machine stitching here and there.
Loving this collection and these papers (and this little boy).
OWL be back soon! (comon, you KNEW that was coming.....)
Stay scrappy my friends!
