  2. While that dries, choose a cute image from the Paisley cartridge and cut out all the layers using the Core’dinations paper. Cut it out at 7.5 inches and glue them all together using the Elmer’s glue. You can also add some dimension by using the applicator and using some Distress Ink along the edges of the owl, under his chest ruffles, etc.

  3. Cut the branch from the Winter Wonderland cartridge, using the 12X24 inch mat. If you don’t have extra long paper, don’t worry! Just put TWO 12X12 sheets of paper on the mat and make sure they are REALLY stuck down- then cut out your large shape. You can hide that little seam later! You can also cut out berries for the branches and attach them.

  4. Once the Gesso is dry, mix up some Pearl-Ex in a mister bottle and spritz the canvas. To blur the spatter marks, dab it with a wet paper towel and create a little texture.

  5. While that is drying, cut out the letters for the name.
     
  6. Now it’s time to glue everything down. Adhere the branch, and then perch your owl on top. Use a generous amount of Mod Podge- don’t skimp out. Add the name on the top, too. Then let it dry.
     
  7. Add a second coat of Mod Podge about an hour later.
     
  8. Add some to Stickles to the berries, chest ruffles, and flower on the owl wing.
