A Bug-Eyed Hooty Owl...Yeah, That's What I Said!



I have had so much fun the past few days
creating in my little art space.

I am this week's color host over at
I rarely have ANY idea what I am going
to make when I choose my color inspiration photos.
This week was no exception, but I can tell you that
I had something much more elegant in mind
than what I came up with....here's why....


Look at this fabulously elegant inspiration

Now look at the whimsy that followed...


Now granted, the senior designers typically
choose the 'color stories' up to 3 months in
advance, but I can assure you I had no idea that
I would go in THIS direction.
Isn't that the great thing about challenges, though?

I used a wonderful new punch from EK Success.
This 'starburst' is punched directly into the
lime green cardstock.  The stamp is from 
Studio G's 'I Cling' series.  The DP is from
DCWV's 'Latte' matstack.
I paper-pieced the polka dot DP to the
'Bug-Eyed Hooty Owl'.

Now it's time for you to skeedaddle over
to The Play Date Cafe.  You are not going
to believe this week's DIVERSE collection
of projects using these fantabulous colors!
