Lauras sketch #30




Gosh this week has just flown by and I really wish it was summer down here in Australia. I keep reading everyones blog and how they are having pool parties, bbqs' and how beautiful the sun is! It is winter down here and although Melbourne weather is not that cold during winter (around 12 - 17 degrees celcius - not sure on fahrenheit conversion!!!) I still wish I was in a warmer climate!
Anyhow 1 postive to miserable cold weather is that I can stay in the craft room longer!
This week I have used Sassafras Lass 'Fawned of You, too" papers and since the title of the papers makes a 'play' on words I also made a 'play' on the word OWL. I substituted the word 'I'll' for 'Owl' !!! I suppose it depends on how your accent is but when I say the word 'I'll' it definitely sounds like the owl bird!!! I have also used Prima owl stamp and have cut out layers of different Sassafras papers to make the feather layers at the front of the owl so it sort of gives it a 3D look. I have also used Kaiser pearls, Carolee Creations stickers and Pink Paislee stickers.
Thanks for looking and have a great week.
