Night Owl Shrine Box

Hoo hoo hoo!
I made this little owl shrine from the largest of a set of wooden nesting boxes from the thrift store. I painted the inside which was just unfinished wood with black/blue acrylic paints to make it look like the night sky.
Then I arranged and glued in some dried up old plant stuff like wisteria curliques, dried grasses and such that I had collected along with a feather for good measure :)
The owl is one that I watercolor painted first and then accented with black and white acrylic inks and a black micron pen.

Speaking of micron pens, I will be putting on a giveaway in my very next post with both some supplies and crafted items to celebrate my 365th blogpost :D Wheeee! So tell your friends and look out for my next post in the next few days detailing the prizes! You won't want to miss it :) Happy Monday!

i LOVE owl art. it reminds me of waking up in the middle of a silent night, the only sound being the owl calling out somewhere in the forest of roundlake state park in idaho.
