Sticking With the Owl Theme

Standard

While my nieces were here for a week, we were burdened with some bad weather, and spent a lot of our time crafting. They went home with a gallery (literally, they created a gallery to tour their parents through) of projects.  Some I did with them, others I just helped them with.

One of the ones I did was this owl. We purchased $3 picture frames, and painted on the glass. We used acrylic paint. We printed drawings that we liked, and taped them to the frame. The hardest part of this project is making sure that you paint things in the right order. Think of it like layers of color, making sure that you paint the outlines and details first, then do the backgrounds and bigger spaces later.

If I had better color walls in my house, I would have left the glass clear, and let the wall be the back drop. However, we have very dull color walls, and my owl looked bad in front of all of them!  So, I painted it blue, and hung my owl in front of my owl fabric on the wall.

 

So, enjoy. 🙂

If you have questions, I can try to answer them!

Craft on!

Hubs is Home!!!

Standard

For everyone that does not know, Hubs came home from Afghanistan about 6 weeks ago. We decided not to spread that around, because we weren’t really sure what was going to happen. He came home because he was sick. He has been with the doctor, and is now as good as new! However, the doctor recommended that he not return. So, Hubs has officially been released from his contract, and all obligations associated with it.

Cause to celebrate? Absolutely!

Well, I have dropped B off in VA. From there, he will go for 2 months of training, then he will actually head to the desert. Boo! Today, I am really too tired to process too much in the way of feelings. I am going to get the remote and catch up on some DVR. Tomorrow, I might start to process something besides just exhaustion.
