Can you guess

OK, I took a day off from my blog and now I'm ready to post again. 

Can you guess what this is?



Give up?

Those are part of my September craft project. They are the makings for owl eyes


I'll show you the whole thing another day since the two I have started aren't completely done yet. I took 1" round cardstock circles, folded them in half twice and then cut slices to fringe them. Then I covered them with clear embossing ink, sprinkled on clear embossing powder and got out the heat gun to finish them off. Then I glued them to the owl and glued on the black bead. The little bit of extra effort with the embossing ink and powder was really worth it. It made the paper more durable and the look was more impressive too.

Just for fun I decided to do a little creative editing with the above picture.


Any predictions on how many of these owls I'll be able to complete in the month of September?

It will keep us on the edge of our seats to see your lovely creations. I always enjoy what you come up with. I would say 12 for the month.

Sandra said...

10, i know you can do it... the next ones will be faster from practice. can't wait to see what you made the body out of. the first pic i thought it was olives and cheese.. yum... i do like the eyes, can't wait to see the finished product

Christine said...

Well I must need my glasses as I thought it was part of your healthy eating plan and they were black olives and crackers!
The owl is really cute though and I hope you get five made!

Oooh the owl eyes do look fascinating!

In the first photo i thought it was some sort of berries to be eaten with biscuits.


LOL

Sandee said...

At first I thought of olives and cheese. What a nice surprise. So cute.

I think you can make at least 10 this month.

Have a terrific day. Hugs to you and my best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Marg said...

That is terrific. I am going to guess 12 owls in total. Guess that is a lot. We can't wait to see the results either. I love owls. Have a great day.

Grace said...

These look complicated, since I can't tell how you are making the body of the owl, I'll say 6.

Ida said...

Love the owl - I'm guessing 8-10. Your artistic edit is fantastic.

Lin said...

How many of anything can you make before you get bored? I was never good for a lot---maybe 6 at most. Then I lose interest.

The owl eyes are very creative!

BeadedTail said...

I thought that was food too! :) I bet you make 8 owls this month.

Too cute Ann, can't wait to see them! Happy creating ☺

Sheryl Hastings said...

I had the beads right but I had no idea how it all connected. Love the owl, can't wait to see it completed!
