Mr. Holtz Owl

A few years ago, owls were all the rage. Remember that? Hero Arts had several adorable owls. I used them lots (and still do) and got a bit of teasing for it from Mr. Tim Holtz.

See, I tease him for always creating “dark cloud” projects and he teases me for creating “bags of Skittles” projects, often with cutesy things such as owls. It’s all in respect and fun.

So when he asked for a few years ago to create some projects for his Ideaology booth at CHA, I knew just what to create:

A colorful owl. 🙂

Yes, I was being a bit of a smart aleck, but it was so much fun to create…

So Mr. Holtz Owl was created from cut pieces of Grungeboard. And all the embellishments? They are all from Ideaology.

Paperclips for feathers. The number zero for eyes along with a few gears. The beak? That is a leaf. And the feet? Those are game spinners/clock hands.

All the coloring was done with Distress Inks. The only non-Holtz goodies are the branch (Prima) and the letter stamps (Papertrey).

So much fun to create. I did this a couple of years ago and don’t think I have shared it here yet – sorry if I did.

And there you have it: The Mr. Holtz Owl.

Have a good week.
