Challenge #149 - Theme: Cute + A Sentiment
Click Bugaboo Digi Stamps Image to see the "Cute Owl" Digi Used
I've had this wooden frame I purchased to do a wall hanging for a Barbie Doll House, but never used and it's been sitting in my scrap room for quite some time. I chose Bugaloo's Cute Owl as my image, and since my daughter's scrap room is full of owls, I decided to make a little whimsical wall hanging.
Lisa's room is turquoise, so I painted the wood frame with turquoise acrylic paint, and used one of the stamps from "Ink Blot Flair" and stamped around the frame with Lagoon and Glacier inks. The image was colored with a variety of ShinHan alcohol based pens, masked the image, applied water coloring for the background and framed with a stitched square panel to adhere to the wood frame. Several flowers were cut in different sizes, colored, layered and adhered to the image with a small cascade of flowers down on the frame and added a lady bug.
Stamped a sentiment on turquoise cardstock in black ink, fussy-cut and adhered to frame and added a ladybug on each side.

Do I love Liquid Glass...that I do and you will see it in many of my creations...just adds that bit of dimension and shine. Liquid Glass is used on the glitter tape center of each flower, ladybugs, owl's nose and feet.
My daughter introduced me to another challenge LESSology, and in your project you have to use a recycled object and include a tassel. Viewing some of the entrants very unique and creative recycled items used I'm not sure this fits into the challenge; but I thought I would try it anyway.
I think of all the tassels over the years I have discarded, so my only alternative was to make a tassle. Now I had to come up with a recycled item...my neighbor and I were sharing thoughts of things we throw in the waste can, and there it was right in front of me. I had emptied a tape roll from my Scotch Tape Glider and had just discarded into my scrap room wastebasket...so I recovered it and used it in my project. I chose four different colors of twine to match the colors in the flowers and wrapped them through the holes and around, cut a tassle at the bottom, and left two of the strings to insert in the Frame.
