Eyes of an Owl by Suzanne Franin


Hey Everyone Suzanne here

My turn on the Colour Blast Blog
Make sure you check out the rest of the blog to see what the Design Team have been up too 
And check out the links on the side of the blog for the links to all our Social Media Links

I have an obsession with Owls there's something magical about them
This ones eyes have such depth 


I used Colour Artist Ink Rust with a touch of water

I used paper from the Limited Edition Collection - Imperfect oh my this range is awesome so steampunk but light enough that you can add more depth and texture too it
I used the Peony Dreams Stamp from the Spread your Wings Collection randomly over the paper
After stamping I dripped some the ink down the page 


Adding some water sprays along the way to help it spread

And using the Heat gun to move it around
I also spray some Colour Spray - Mocha on the background for more depth
I decided I wanted to use the Graffiti Grunge Collection - Linked in Die but I didn't want to use another paper so I cut out the middle of the paper I was using and ran it through my Die Cutting machine twice as the paper is quite thick

Colour Blast also have small stencils that aren't on the website (contact them they usually have them at craft shows) I used 3D gel with the grass looking one on the stencil 3 times 
I know Colour Blast know longer have the Colour Shimmer Cubes (you can still find them at some online stores) but the colours are perfect for what I needed 
The resin owl was from a kit I bought from Art and Soul Studio (it was one of their monthly kits and because it had an owl I had to have it)
I started of by spraying him with Mocha Colour Spray then added Leather, Sienna and Bling Shimmer cubes to him 
His beak I added some Snow White and his eyes are done with Dusty Charcoal
I used a white sharpie to add the whites to his eyes
The frame and tags are from the Limited Edition Collection - Glorious I just layered them and added the Linked in Die that I cut up and added some Rust too



Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon x
