Aaahhh, adorable!
Congrats on jumping back in, I need to get get back in the groove after end of spring semester and graduation.  I miss when we used to make dolls lol! !! And miss you to,  friend!

oh my goodness! Hello friend!! Loved the doll making days and miss them too. I don't think I remember how to even make them.. it's been so long. Need to jump back on that train as well!  This felt so good to get back into creating (even if it's wonky) and feel that part of myself come back to life. I hope you're doing well and so glad to see you're still around.  Kiss

It's been a full two years since I've posted anything and I can say probably that long since I've done any real "sit down and craft something". I've sure missed Craftster and I check out what ya'll are making frequently but being active here?It's been a long time. Well. I thought I would jump in again and get my craft on.
I'm a huge collector of craft magazines and one of my favorites is Cloth Paper Scissors. This project was from May/June issue of 2013, one of my most favorite issues with a ton of cute stuff to make. Over the last couple of days, I pulled out my paint and paint brushes. Bought a new MOD PODGE since my old one was a dried up glob. Bought all of the wooden eggs at Hobby Lobby cause I'm a hoarder. Yup. I'm that person. Like the extreme couponers who buy every last can of tomato soup cause it's on sale and you just wanted grilled cheese and tomato soup. And someone cleared the shelf. Drives me nuts.
It was me.
I bought all the wooden eggs.
Right before Easter.
I'm not sorry.
Well I am kind a.
OH GEEZ!  I forgot! I was here to post my project...sheesh. My distracted brain.

I painted the wooden egg with the base color then mod podged tissue paper all over for texture. Dry brushed two different colors over the tissue paper. Used pencil to draw in the face then painted, outlined with micro pen. Mod Podged feathers and the wings and now I have myself a cute little spring owl to brighten up my window sill. For sure I have little to no experience with drawing or painting something like this other than the doll faces I did years ago. This was something new for me and I really enjoyed the process!  I missed spending hours crafting and creating. Anyhoo, I hope you like him. I'm going to be making some smaller ones so hopefully my technique will get better and the eyes won't be so wonky and my son so lovingly pointed out. "Go away kid!"  Grin
