Owl photoshoot and some unexpected surprises

i had a weird feeling about a year ago that someone in my workplace did stamping (crafts etc) and i could never figure out why i had such a thought. Perhaps because i longed to be at home stamping instead of being stuck at my desk at work LOL.....

By some weird coincidence, work decided to have a secret santa event on my floor and we were to have a person from another floor come help us out with work. By a series of unexplainable email events, we came to discover that we both stamped, did atcs and mixed media stuff... lol All this time.....I wonder how many years LOL how funny is that!!! Well... Kerin has a blog too as I soon discovered enough. You may visit her blog here!

Second surprise of the day was this stunning totally amazing canvas art that i received in the mail from Natalie Briney.. OMG.. Nat, you MUST tell me how in the world did you get the flowers and branches to be 3d... what is it? This is such an exquisite piece.. something i would definitely buy from the shop. The flowers are just so beautiful and the little black dots reminds me of spores or flying seeds. Thank you soooo much. i love it very much.

Okay lots of excitement today. I tend to get overexcited and then feel sick from it afterwards LOL. Here's a little mini photoshoot of some xmas cards I made, some for team mates at work. Thought it might be nice to make them some handmade items this year.. not too sure how it would be received. I have had mixed reactions in the past.. i was also going to bake some reindeer muffins on sunday night..



i wonder what others have done with their Collections owls... i would be interested to see...

Hey Sulea..> Gorgeous Owl art.. your work mates will love them I'm sure. and small world that there is another 'arty' person at your work place. that's so cool.

I got the raised images by mixing the paint with glaze (goldens) and squeezing it through a bottle with a small opening at the top. like a sauce bottle. but i've now found smaller bottles with smaller pin wholes at the top, so i can now get an even more controlled and thinner flower stem.

All I need now is some mojo to do something creative. :-) glad you liked it.

Ha! I told you I was taking the one you sent to me into work for display Sulea! This is where Audrey saw it....yep, she loved it. It looks great sitting up there on the shelf above all the Collections products. Lucky you to get a "Briney Original"! Gorgeous!

I neglected to tell you that I am also in love with the collections stuff. I think your cards are great and if anyone screws their face up at work you can take it off them and give it to me! I have started on Ivy's pressie. I have taken a close up of her dogs face,printed 5 copies and greated a 3D image of it. I am going to make a small canvas out of it for her. Catch you at work where I too will be dreaming of stamping.

The owls are awesome and if your colleagues don't appreciate their worth - take them back!!!! They are fantastic and i must confess to adoring the one i received *grin*
