I’ve had a hoot this weekend!

Hi Everyone,

So I have been meaning to make this for quite sometime… This weekend I finally found some playtime and this was the finished result

Owl Heart

The original idea didn’t have the holly in and had leaves and branches in place instead. But I was feeling festive and I love the new Berries & Birds stamp set so the Holly in that was perfect.

Here’s the Step by Step…

Painted Heart

Firstly I painted the wooden heart using Distress Paint Frayed Burlap. Love the fact you don’t need a paint brush as it has a sponge applicator and you get a nice smooth finish. Apply one to two coats depending on the effect you want. ย Paint both sides of the heart.
Wood Grain Heart
Once the Frayed Burlap is dry. Add your Woodgrain Stencil over the top. I’ve used Tim Holtz THS023 Woodgrain Stencil. I then used Gathered Twigs Distress Paint through the stencil. Sorry for the messy stencil I have been experimenting a lot recently using this and didn’t clean it up properly ( Tut Tut ) but good news it still works perfectly – just looks a mess!ย 
Wood Grain Heart Done
So one completed wood stain Heart. Now you need the decorations…
Stamped Owl & Holly
I used one of the Owls from CS066D Owls set. For this exercise I think I will call him Boris and two Holly branches from CS082D Berries & Birds. Colour these in however you would like, I used a mix of ProMarkers and Copics.
Then here comes the bit you either Love or Hate… The Cutting out. Most of you who will know me know I love cutting out, I just turn the telly on and sit there and cut out.ย 
You only need the owl and I used the two smaller hollies on the right hand side and layered them up and stuck them onto the wood using Pinflair Glue. I also added Glossy Accents to the Berries and the Owls eyes (Please make sure it’s all dry) Then add a bit of ribbon and you are done ๐Ÿ˜€
Owl Heart Close Up
So after I finished this my head was buzzing with what I wanted to do next… I’ve started my next project (coming soon)
Right that’s all for now I’m going to go and finish my other Project.
Thanks for reading!
