who gives a hoot? I do :)

as you may or may not know I am finally, after six years, moving back home to Western Australia in June. I am going to miss a lot of people here in Sydney, and so I thought I would create some arty goodbye gifts for a couple of my lovely friends...this piece is not quite finished but is for my owl crazy friend and uber talented scrapper Gillian Lester.

...as always my colours are thanks to Lindy's Stamp Gang products

my friend Julie Saxby has a great little online embellishment store called Jules Gems that sells some lovely charms such as these brass pieces sitting on top of WOW cogs...great eyes eh?

every long feather is hand cut and every short feather is hand punched...I didn't count how many I used so I will just say heaps...I used an entire 12x12 sheet of black cardstock

I love these brass leaves, also from Jules Gems
