I've been in the mood- and really have needed- to just play.
My husband made me these cool wooden canvasses a while back, and this teeny tiny one has been sitting on my desk, waiting for inspiration. My bedroom mantel needed a spot of something fun, so I went with a little owl... because I just love them and they make me happy.
I decided to free-hand cut her. I could have used a Silhouette file but I really just wanted to play with the gorgeous papers myself. Plus, I like it when things are a little imperfect looking.
I used all sorts of fun things from the Gather Together kit, including the polka dot stamp strip on the background.
I think she's so cute, and she definitely brings a bright spot right where I wanted it!
