I think that I may need an intervention! It's 2 am and when everyone else in my house is sleeping I am sitting at the kitchen table working on my latest creation. I nursed 3 children for atleast 1 year each and have never fully recovered my good sleeping patterns. I figure that the only way I can get anything done is when then house is quiet and no one is asking me for ANYTHING!
But I digress.. so this has been on my mind for quite awhile. I love the look of the owl pictures but can't bring myself to buy one. So I did what any crafty woman would do.. I decided to make one using one of my favoirtie media the 12" x 12" wood square. So here is my very first tutorial for my 2 loyal fans! (Thanks Linda and Carolyn!)
The first thing that I do is start to paint the wood box.. because there is so much space this can take awhile.
I paint the sky and then the grass so that the grass literally meets the sky.
Then it is time to add a little dimension. I love buttons and ribbon so I add both! Put it all together and what have you got a really cute wall hanging or picture to stand on a table or shelf! Hope my first tutorial was fun and helpful!
