Owl Calendar

Hello crafters hope you have a nice weekend planned, with some crafty time if you can.

Now I'm not normally partial to feathery things close up but I couldn't resist having a go at this owl that was featured in a recent magazine. 



She looks quite at home hanging in my work room. All the papers were magazine freebies  and for a bit of texture I distressed the paper and then inked the edges for definition...wish I'd done the same with the eyes too!!

I'm playing at these challenges

Crafty Ribbons Challenge #141 - Anything But A Card
Noor UK #14 - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers #100 - Anything Goes
Allsorts #345 - Ribbon and/or lace

I am off to do a spot of colouring while the men are at work.

Toodles for now xx
