Steampunk Owl Canvases

Late last year I created a canvas for a friend of mine entitled Wise Owl Canvas. These 3 small canvases are to go with that one to make a collage on the wall.
The canvases are: 3 1/2" X 4 1/2", 4" X 5", 5" X 6". I used Stampin' Up pattern papers, Tim Holtz tissue tape, wire from my stash, Jolee's Boutique Owl Stickers, Stampin' Up Soft Suede ink, and Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
It looked like the tissue tape was coming up in some places, but I have since fixed that.
As you can see it has taken me one month to the day to get back into my studio, just for the day, I'm hoping this is going to be a beginning back to my artistic side. I'm kind of tired of the nursing persona, however, my Mom didn't have any broken bones from her fall right before Thanksgiving and that is a good, good thing, but she has had a long recovery back to almost where she was before the fall. Some days it's still a tussle to get her to exercise, but we are going forward and not backward.
Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts and your continued faithfulness in following my blog.
Hope to have some more projects in the coming weeks and months.

Happy Creating--

Beverly, so nice to see some of your creations again. I'm glad that you have at least managed a little crafting (sanity?) time. These owls are very cool. Really like the backgrounds. Hope your mom continues to improve. We take our gains where we can get them :)

These are adorable--lucky friend ;-)

I'll echo Bonnie and say I'm so glad you can spend at least a bit of time in your studio and also glad your mom is better.

I see a steampunk influence here, or is it the owl from the Ray Harryhausen version of Clash of the Titans?

Very cool projects! I'd love to feature them & link back to your blog for my next Trendy Tuesday article at Papercrafters Library (for March 26). The theme is "owls" and these are so unique, they'll be a great addition. You can ck out the blog here:
