Enjoying a Super Busy week by doing all the things I don't need to do!!

So school gets out in a few weeks. So of course I have a million things going on around here!!  Tennis playoffs, the Susan G Komen 5K, making S'mores bags for the school cakewalk, planning a tennis scavenger hunt, Julia's birthday, Mother's day, end of the year party planning and more tennis!! I just have put too much on my plate!! So what do I do when I have too much to do???  I sit and play!!  In fact, I sat and played at Altered Angel with my Thursday's Angels and made this fun owl canvas!

I actually found the brown canvas at Goodwill.  It  had white decorations on it, but it had obviously been sitting in the sun and was absolutely faded!!   So to start I mixed my acrylic paint, clear gesso and glazing medium.  That way I figured I would have a ground and pretty transparent paint to show off the original shapes in the background!!  Next I cut out and glued on my owl and grass. I also put some paint, rub-ons and tissue paper around the edges to liven up the background.  I REALLY like how she turned out!! I am going to hang her on the wall near my desk I like her so much!!  


  1. I love the owl! And I am so happy that you spent part of your busy day playing with us! :)

  2. super awesome, love the edging of the canvas it's so cool!!!!
