What a Hoot! by Helen Chilton


 I'm using up the waste this week - well, not waste but the middle of an MDF shrine that we had for one of the Hochanda shows. It's a really great size. I've teamed it up with some AALL & Create stamps.

I started by covering the panel with some Stamperia Hortensia paper.

Then I stencilled a woodgrain pattern with Light Texture Paste. When that dried, I added a bit of colour with Distress Crayons.

The owl was stamped directly onto some more of the Hortensia paper and I added a touch of extra colour.

I decided I'd make a hole for him to sit in using the top of his head.

You can see I've also stamped and coloured a leafy border.

And there you have him, sitting in his tree.

I always save the extra pieces from the shadow boxes and shrines as you never know when they'll come in useful. If you've got a Crop-A-Dile you can easily punch holes through the MDF for brads or eyelets as I've done here.

So, I hope you have a good week.
