DIY - Owl - Doodling/Painting/Mixed Media Tutorial How To

 I've been noticing a lot of Owls lately.
Have you too?
I decided to see if I could make an owl painting of my own.
Here's what I came up with.  It's easy, fun, and I'm guessing you can do it too.
Here's how...
First step - Sketch a picture of an owl.  I found a cookie jar owl and used it to get ideas from.

The next day, I found some of my favorite scrap paper.
Cut it up into shapes, similar to my sketch.
I laid it out on a canvas, and then decoupaged it down.

I was going to paint around my owls parts, but decided I'd rather doodle.
No surprise there.  So, I started by outlining.  Then, I doodled.

For the words, I decided to use. 
"Owl Always Love You."
Not sure
how these things just pop into my head.
But, I'm glad that they do.
I cut out some more scrapbook paper and used a stamp for
my letters with white paint.
I ended up doing my green background after, but you might want to do it before you
glue your owl down.
Let me know what you think, or show me a picture of an owl you create.
I'd really love that.
