Who Loves You?

My friend at Kerri’s Kreations recently showed me her rendition of a mixed media owl.  She made such a cutie of an owl using an array of different paints, stencils, and papers, but there was one thing missing.  This owl needed a friend.  I mean, the owl was even asking the question, “Who loves me?”  I felt both obligated and inspired to create a friend for Kerri’s owl.

Cre8tiveCre8tive by Andrea Gomoll has a wonderful mixed media owl video on youtube.  I followed her process using Faber-Castell gelatos, book paper, stamps, and a doodle pen.  In addition, I also used  my newly acquired water soluble pencil.

Here is my new friend for Kerri’s owl.  He answers her question.  He is the one who loves her!

Magazine Mondays – Week Thirty-Three

Every Monday, PaperCrafter’s Corner posts a magazine cover on their blog as inspiration for their weekly challenge.  Based on the magazine covers, we are asked to create a papercraft project (card, art journal, scrapbook layout, etc.).

Here is the inspiration for this week.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays - Week 33 Inspiration Piece (image)

Of the many items on this cover, what really “spoke” to me were the flowers and shirt.  I created an art journal page incorporating flowers and some clothing items.  I used acrylic paints, markers, paper, and stamps to create this.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you at the next Magazine Monday challenge. 🙂

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays - Week Thirty-Two Inspiration Piece (image)

I was lucky enough to win Magazine Mondays – Week Thirty, and I wanted to incorporate some of the paper I received as my prize into this week’s project.  Since the paper is Christmas style, I decided to try my hand at a Christmas themed project in my art journal.  I decided to utilize the same color palette as the inspiration piece.  I used my new paper, some acrylic paints, stencils, markers, stickers, stickles, ribbons, and embellishments to create this:

I painted hearts and added a tag on the stocking paper.  I painted hearts and added ribbon on the striped paper.  I made a Christmas tree with plaid paper.  I made an owl out of the brown paper and red hounds tooth.

The penguin is cute, but the owl, with his google eyes, is the star of the show. I love him so much, I had to give him a close-up!
