I missed a whole month of Tag Tuesday Challenge tags, I feel terrible about that, but now that I am back in the UK, I am determined to catch up, starting with this week's theme of OWLS.
When I was looking through my images of owls, I found this one, and it gave me the shivers, those eyes looked so evil! My immediate thought was, Halloween owl, and that was what I went with. A lot of people in past centuries thought of owls as associated with witchcraft and magic, not just the wise creature we mostly think of these days.
Halloween Owl tag -
I used black mulberry paper for the background, cut out images of the moon, a bat, skull and scary doll and gave the evil owl a witches' hat. A piece of fabric leaf trim had to do for a tree branch. I also had this image of a scary baby or doll in a bottle, which I wanted to use somehow. I coloured a tiny bottle I had found at a bootfair on Sunday green to kind of match the image and really make it look like a bottled baby. Just a little bit of silver sparkle on the hat and the night sky, and that was it, Halloween Owl tag done.
A whole month to catch up on, sigh........... now what was last week's theme?
