A parliament of owls

A Parliament of owls
 
This is a favourite project of mine.
 
I have a great love for anything owl related as I mentioned in my profile.
 
 This was a project I did a while back but I still enjoy looking at it every day.
It incorporates some metal embossing as well as stamping and using Dreamweaver stencils.
 The large Dreamweaver owl was done with Ferro paste, which gives a lovely rough texture with a slight shimmer. The two small owls were done with black matt embossing  paste.
The little owls look so feisty sitting on the branch, I find them amusing.
 
 
 
 The owl stamps are from Crafty Individuals and Katzelkraft and the tree is a P.I. stamp, stamped onto acetate. 
 
 The trees are difficult to see in the bottom left and right corners, but the acetate is curved and tucked into the window, to give it a bit more dimension.
 
 
 
 The font used for the writing is called Lingfield by Go Create.
 
 
All the products used were from The Craft Barn.
 
 
Update.
 I was lucky enough to teach this project again to a lovely group of ladies who visited the Craft Barn in July.
As  some of the products are not sold there now , I adapted the  design slightly with other owl and tree dies. Stupidly , I didn't take a photo of the variations!
 
Hope you have enjoyed looking and thanks for visiting.
