Owl Mixed Media

I got a chance to step out of my comfort zone this week trying to match a nursery for a baby gift.  I generally stick to a vintage look like floral and damask, but this needed some harder contrasts and a whimsical look.  So I took inspiration from a scrap book pad for style direction. The stripes and dots which became the tree came from one of these pages.  I made a quick chevron template from a stripe page.  The flowers were a design based on a polka dot backround in the paper pack. What helped it really pull together was outlining everything with a brown sharpie.Then I cut out coordinating owl shapes from the paper pack and decoupaged them on to the painting.  The eyes were flowers.  I used the Sharpie to write the verse.  Then I hot glued some gems on to the eyes and spritzed opalessence over the entire piece.  Viola!
