Round Robin #33

I received a very large sampler that I was working on this month, but could not complete my portion before the send date. So I made a decision to start a new one that was small and quick enough to do and send right away (that day as a matter of fact). The theme for this one is Owls. I'm really into owls right now and thought this would be fun. This design can be found at. Aliolka Design. There are wonderful designs on this blog that will be fun to stitch.

Zentangle Barn Owl

Hanging on my wall is this Barn Owl that I drew, painted with watercolors, and added Zentangle designs. Took close to a week to complete. It has been placed in a 8" x 8" oak frame. One of my absolute favorites.

Valentine's Day ATC

In celebration of Valentine's Day, I joined a swap and created an ATC. I used a stamp image by Whipper Snapper as inspiration for this one. The Lovebug was too cute not to pass up. Of course, I added my own doodle details. It consists of Micron Pens, Watercolors, and Salt on 140# Watercolor Paper.
