Grey November - Twit Twoo
Thought I'd better make my November page for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge early then I might get chance to construct the calendar itself! This month the words are GREY and OWL. Well November has definitely started out grey and foggy so very fitting.
I have only one Owl stamp - this one is Chocolate Baroque - and whilst I did look for a more realistic one, most of the ones I found were a bit too cute for me. I decided to stick with a black, white and grey theme so just stamped the owl in black. For the background I created a border with Pearly Silver Ink in a Bottle and just sprinkled on a little Black Brusho. I then sprayed Bobby's Grey Ink in a Bottle through a brick wall stencil and drew branches with the spray tube straight out of the bottle. It's just finished with the Owl and November calendar.
Hope you like and thanks for visiting. Apologies for the photo - it's a grey day and grey project. Maybe I should have added some green leaves. I'm so looking forward to December when the words might involve Christmas in some way and we can finish the year with some bright colours!!
