Layout: Owl Always Love You30 May 2012 | By Kristin in Hearts, Page Layouts, Uncategorized
Hello! Kristin here with a fun and simple layout to share with you for the Basically Bare/Nikki Sivils swap!
The feature of this simple layout is that fun little owl in the upper left hand corner. I love creating detailed embellishments and placing them on simple layouts where their beauty can really shine.
A grid design always lends very well to layouts in which you want something specific to stand out. In my grid I have the little owl, as well as my photo, my title, and one more plain chipboard embellishment to keep everything even.
Even though he took some time–this little guy is very easy to make. I started out with the Owl set and covered the base of the owl with the brown dotted paper paper from the Messages collection. I also covered the wings with teal paper, and then a smaller piece of yellow paper for extra detail.
Also from the Owl set are the felt eyes, which I dotted with a black Zig FX painty marker. I cut a diamond shaped chipboard nose and covered that with the same yellow paper. The feet were made by cutting the bottoms off the heart keys from the LoveLY lockets collection.
I added extra detail to all the outer edges. The outside of the owl and wings were sanded and then painted over with a white Zig Painty FX marker to give him more depth. I used a Zig Millennium pen to dash the outside of the wing detail.
And a quick look at the heart and arrow embellishment in the lower right hand corner.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I had a great time working with the Nikki Sivils and I hope you’re just as inspired as I was!
