Facebook Challenge for June by Dianna

Hi everyone, Dianna here with a new Project for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Monthly Challenge.  The first of each month there is a new challenge.   This month's challenge is a bird challenge, anything to do with birds and/or wings.

All you have to do is become a member of the Facebook Craft Group and submit your entry on the Facebook Craft Group page.  The winning entry will receive a $10.00 gift certificate to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

I was inspired by a post on Pinterest.  I changed it up by using Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and by going                 3-dimensional. I first painted a canvas with an apple green and then used a teal and darker green for contrast.  I then painted a tree with a large branch for the owls to sit.  I used Twinkling H20's on Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Owl Elements, Mini Flourishes Bella, Words and Phrases- Enjoy the Moment, Little Bird House and Little Bird Box. 

I was heavy handed with the texture paste on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Fern Fronds and painted the ferns with greens and browns. I glued beads and micro beads in the shape of leaves and added the beads to the fern fronds.  I used pieces that dropped off some of the other Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts chipboard items (yes, I save everything) to create wings on the Owls.  The decorative scroll work on two of the owls is drop-off from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts - Dragonflies Fancy.  I used drop-off chipboard pieces to give dimension to the owls by gluing the pieces to the owls prior to gluing the owls to the canvas.  I then inked all the pieces prior to placing everything on the canvas.  

Thank you for looking!
