Owls & Zebra....... It's a zoo around here :)

A fun little post to share some of the crafty stuff I've been up to.  Today my niece, Tricia, were crafting at the same table.  Making things for her new room.  She created a totally awesome canvas to hang up.  Painted it differently than I expected and I love it!  It's way cooler than the one we saw at Ikea (can't believe I said that!) and definitely a lot cheaper!
I saw some totally adorable little owls, another favorite theme of her's, on Pinterest (I can not even explain how addicting that place is!  If you haven't been sucked in, you're lucky!).  Click the links to see the inspiration from EffemeraInk.  My versions are below.
Side-ish view so you can see all the fabrics and details a little better

One thing I did was to use some beans to keep them upright and stable.  Just poured a few into a sandwich bag, rolled it up, taped it together and stuffed it into the bottom after I'd stuffed the bird, so to speak.  If you look closely you can see that I used some Spellbinders dies to embellish them.  Just love those little suckers.  They make so many projects so much faster and easier!

Speaking of dies - I'm nearly done creating the projects for the next DIEnomite class at The Creative Quest.  Look for that post to go up soon.  And tomorrow will have a post on the Copic Inspirations classes for Payson.
