Life's a Hoot!

Good morning and Happy St Patrick's Day,

I finally have one of my samples to show you today (yes, just one for now) and this one is for the Alphabet Challenge where we start back at the beginning of the alphabet today - so for the letter 'A' I chose the theme


Here's what I made using a couple of the brand new mixed media dies from Crafter's Companion which were launched during our recent birthday week with Hochanda.

The main mixed media die set used for the little owl is called 'Twit Twoo' and I cut him from black matt cardstock, then embossed all the pieces and treat them to a little gilding wax - I just love him!

I used a piece of design paper from my Tim Holtz paper pad that seemed to fit nicely with my theme, then added a die-cut border and a length of ribbon to create a perch for him to sit on. 

The whole piece is embellished with some die-cut leaves in felt and leather, using the 'Maple Leaves' mixed media die from the same launch, and I added a couple of felt flowers too. 

The 'Life's a Hoot' sentiment was created on my pc to finish off.

Hope you can join us with your own creations - there are so many ways to incorporate wings into your projects, I can't wait to see them all.

Hugz, Jan xx
