Today I just needed to get crafty. It has just been waaay to long. So I got out some canvases that I have had for some time and went to work. I have a thing for owls lately, incase you have not noticed. Well I have seen so many cute ones being made I just had to use the techniques I have seen out there. This guy was made using making memories paints on the canvas to create a sky scene. Came out better than I thought. I also used Hero Arts wood grain stamp to give the look of bark using clear embossing powder. I also made some of the paper flowers that are so popular right now. They are too stinkin cute. I filled the centers with dew drops and made the belly out of flowers. I had seen this technique used by Cindy Tobey in the CK Magazine and thought it was super cute. Well all in all I loved making it and can not wait to hang it up in my office tomorrow.
I have also been on a mission to get healthy and fit by 40! Which is coming up very quickly. I started on my journey, January 2, 2010 and so far have lost 19lbs as of today. If I get brave enough I will post some before and after pictures!
