Maybe owl work on it

I like owls. Real owls are great and I've seen cute little crafty owls all over the internet. I thought I would see if I could come up with a quilled owl and this is what I got.
I wasn't totally happy with the way I filled in the body between the two wings but I thought he was pretty cute anyway.

I love it! I have noticed owls and have been attracted to them for over a year now. I bought some cute fluffy white owls for my Christmas tree last year ~ I can hardly wait until I see their little faces again soon! :)

You are a crafty girl Ann!

Owls are so popular again! I am seeing them pop up all over blogs with crafty authors. You did a great job quilling this sweet little guy!

Way back in the 70's I made an owl string art.... bet you don't remember string art! My mother had it for years. ugh!

Grace said...

Oh, he is delightful! But you knew I would say that didn't you? :)

Roschelle said...

Jen said...

He is adorable! I'm loving all your quilling projects...and it's making me think I need to get back into it again too (right now my crafting supplies are terribly busy dust collecting :o)

I thought you did a great job Ann. It looks like an owl we have around here.

Ann said...

Catherine, It was a blog about owls that got me started on the owl kick a while back, I've seen so many cute ones I just can't resist them. I bet those ornament are adorable

beaded tail thank you very much

sharkbytes the eyes were the easy part :)

LDH I remember them being huge back when I was a kid, and YES I do remember string art. That was another big thing :)

Grace, I kind of figured but I don't mind you confirming it for me :)

roschelle, thanks

Jen thanks, my house is busy dust collecting while I'm devoting my time to my crafting supplies :)

Fishhawk rrrrrufff to which I replied "I'm just learning, give me a break"

Junezach thank you

Miawa thank you very much

Donna by blocking out the rest of the world and getting lost in play time :)

Out on the prairie said...

Fun quill,it would be hard to get the tiny breast feathers, so I like the altered shapes you use.Great job Ann.

Jean said...

Ann, Your owl is charming! Owls are such cool birds.

Tanyia said...

Omg Ann I totally love it! :) You are really so dang good at this! I still have my kit ready and waiting to be tried as soon as I unpack again lol.

Tanyia said...

Ann, Kayla said to tell you she is obsessed with owls and she said this is about the cutest thing she has seen in a long time!

Nico Designs said...

Ann, the owl is so cute. I cannot imagine the time it takes to make all of those loopy things!

Bossy Betty said...

I give this owl five out of five hoots.

I think he's lovely and so did my 10 year old nephew who is now walking up and down behind me making owl noises!!

Philippa said...

That's a brilliant owl, Ann - I love it!

Sheri said...

Oh Ann! I'm so glad I stopped by your blog today. You know how I love, love, love owls and you just made one of the cutest ones I've ever seen!

You're right, I'm seeing owls everywhere now. That makes me happy :)

The great horned owl we are raising at work isn't maturing as we had hoped. We've decided he's "special." Might have to find a zoo or sanctuary for him since it doesn't look like he'll be able to survive out on his own.

Theresa said...

Well I think it is really cute!!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

He is absolutely adorable and very stylish.

Ann said...

out on the prairie, the outside went together easy but when it came to those little feathers, oh boy :)

Jean yes they are real or otherwise

Tanyia good may be an overstatement...lol get that kit out already and get started, I know you'll be great at it
Tell Kayla I said thanks

Nico actually the loopy things don't take all that long

Bossy Betty Woo Hoot...lol

allotments4you lol, that is too cute.

philippa thank you, I may try it again and make some changes

Sheri thank you. Too bad about the owl you have at work, I'm sure you'll find the right place for him though

Theresa thank you very much

poetic shutterbug, thanks, maybe even a little on the retro side :)
