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 and 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. 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!
