{Sunday Paper Crafting}

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!
