Super Art Friday-Owl Valentine’s

This week’s art affair was ‘owl’ about having fun!

We were in the craft store yesterday and saw owl themed Valentine’s stuff everywhere.

I got home andย  designed this simple pattern so we could make some owls of our own.

You’re welcome to borrow this pattern, and please link back if you make some cards with it, I’d love to see them.

I made the pattern so that the smaller sized hearts can be made using a 1″ heart punch and a 1/2″ heart punch, if you have them.

I gathered some card making supplies and invited some artistic friends to join us…

I set out stamps and punched hearts ahead of time.ย  Punching ahead makes it easier for the little people.

Here are some of my favorites from today…

This first one was made by my friend’s daughter. She has such an eye for card making!

She gets it from her extremely talented mom, who made this one…

My daughter made this one using a flower stamp sideways for a tree branch-so creative!

I made this one experimenting with different colored papers and folding the wing over so that the owl can ‘hold’ something lik e a balloon…

Or a kite…

And this one with some funky colors and patterns, holding a little flag..

I made this one using only paper that I found in the trash can!

Love the mixed-media look of this one my friend made–the different patterns look cool.

Valentine’s Day always sneaks up on me! This was a fun way to get some cute cards made and have a fun time with friends.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hey Scarlett! WOW – looks like a great time was had by all. I love Owls – ever since I watched Harry Potter {when the first movie came out} and saw beautiful Hedwig, the white owl. So naturally I “notice” owls more now. I just love what you, your friends and daughters did with everything – a great use of papers and colors – and I love all the photos you took of everything.

    It’s fun to relax and enjoy some creating time with others – I am happy you were able to do that! You’ve inspired me to get a move on for Valentines Day – and of course, you know I am going to make something for my girl with your template! I’ll post something next week – I am thinking a Mini Art journal for her to use for Autographs at the Valentines party for school ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  10. Oooh ADORABLE!! I am in love with owls, I go out and listen to them at night, they are so active right now, I love their hooting to each other. In San Jose there was a huge white owl that lived near us and had baby chick each year – they were the cutest things on the planet. Oh my…Owls are so incredible.

    • @Andrea –I know!! I hear one that sounds like it’s right outside my room but I’ve still never seen it! Let me know if you see any of them and what time to look. Ooh yes, owl chicks are the cutest things and white owls are so beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. I loved your owl Valentines so much I printed out your template and made one of my own! Mine was super simple, but I wanted to share anyway to let you know you inspired me! Thanks!

  15. Hi, I ran across your owl valentines during a search for an owl pattern. I just told my director at my childcare center that I wanted to do valentines in an owl theme. Had no idea about this site. Wow, I will definitely show her these! I appreciate you sharing because it is just what I had in mind even though we will simplify them for the children. Will follow your blog! Thanks, Myra
