I made a tessellation puzzle for my son to practice numbers made of 100 owls:



I mod-podged old sheet music to mat board, cut out a lot of owls (my finger is still sore!), and painted them bright colors:



The numbers are written on scrapbook paper and mod-podged on. Then I covered each owl with another layer of mod-podge to protect them. Here are a couple of my favorite owls:





Thanks for the challenge! It was a great inspiration.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

The owls are adorable, just adorable and I love that it's also a counting puzzle. Such a clever idea, brilliant!

Not only is it educational, it's beautiful as well. I think this would make a lovely fabric. Great job!
