Owlways Love One Another

I made this little shopping bag for the challenge this week at Not Just Cards.  I love the cute owl I used for this bag from Kitty Bee one of our sponsors this week.

I coloured the owl with my Copic Markers , cut it out and added it to the background I made from some recycle paper that had once wrapped stain glass that my girlfriend had given  me.   I painted the papers with some acrylic paint I had sitting on my work desk.   The bag also was recycled from a gift received awhile ago.

To complete my project I added some buttons and a sentiment.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  

I am entering this bag in the following challenges:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends -Anything Goes

The Mixed Media World Challenge -Must be mixed media Use Bright Colors
