So after a few visits to craft shops and lots of time in the studio (not to mention the whirlwind of destruction that was left in the wake of my 'creativity') this is the finished result. Both are hand painted and I found some perfect fabric for the middle of the large owl.

Because the colours on the fabric were too bold for the small owl I used some beautiful patterned paper instead. I finished both with a few sparkling gems, for a little bit of extra detail. I was really pleased with the outcome and have already listed them on the website. Even 'big rabbit' seemed to take a shining to the owl.
It's not just the owls I have been working on, I had also fallen slightly in love with a pair of wooden birds and elephants too. Here's the before and after photos of these two:

So that's what's been happening behind the scenes, I'm off now to see what everyone else has been up to on Handmade Monday.
