Owl Canvas

I have always loved using vintage tones in my artwork and this week I wanted to get back to everything I love, vintage colours, textural, organic piece and opted to create a canvas using my newly released A7 Stamp "Owl" #306 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
I just love the natural feel to this. I began by creating a faux wood plank background and then adding colour with Distress Oxides Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs. I then brayered a touch of white paint across the background to lighten it a little and to give it a shabby feel.
The central piece is a wood slice, which I thought worked perfectly with the organic feel of this piece. I brayered some white paint across the wood slice to lighten a touch.
I added a touch of background stamping using my A4 Stamp "Nature Elements" #267, I love the numbers in the background.
I also incorporated the pen nibs, which I stamped with Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink, I love this look.
I added a pen nib, stamped onto book pages onto the wood slice and I added some dimension to my owl, stamping twice and then wrapping the owl with some soft wire. I also added some book pages to my owl for added interest and texture. For further texture I also added my trademark cotton thread behind the wood slice.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, I truly appreciate all your feedback. Tracy x x

Gorgeous soft neutrals, and fabulous stamping. Your owl is so sweet - and that slice of wood is the perfect place for him to perch. Hope you're doing okay in the current craziness - stay safe and stay creative.
