Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm over the owls, flowers and butterflies! Many of you are curious as to what medium I use to paint these and what they were on, canvas etc...These creatures are actually all painted with acrylic Liquitex, house paint and pen on plain Staples card stock. Once I paint them then I cut them out...So they are in fact all cut out pieces. I tried to show them piled up in the above photo so you could see more clearly. In th photo below I just laid them out on a drop cloth. My book "LULU" is mostly used with these type of cut-outs. Keep the comments and questions coming...I love them!

  1. Being a visual person, I would love for your photos and images to be larger. It is easy to do! I know you would love them larger too.

  4. Wow! I was wondering and had asked yesterday in my comments...so thanks! They would look great in a kiddies room or in a study (an artistic nod to the wise owl thing.) Nice work!

  6. Very cool! What are you planning to do with the creatures? Do you sell them?
