OWLS

Hi everyone,
This weeks tag proved difficult for me - I found whatever I did the owl looked too cartoon-like.  So I decided to hide him!  He is tucked behind a piece of printed silk, and because he was still too visible I covered the tag with acetate printed with a silhouette tree.


A huge thank you to everyone who left such uplifting and supportive comments last week -  the tags were fabulous and I can't wait to see what everyone's done for this weeks theme.

  1. Beautiful, Diana! I'm not a big fan of owls, but your design is lovely. The silk is a great addition and I love the cover of printed acetate.

  14. I don't think your owl looks cartoon at all Diana but I do think he looks shy and timid and the treatment you have given him with the layering adds to that mood. I think he was hiding away in that tree and then the moon came out from behind a cloud and revealed him to us for just a moment - love it.
