Owl Tower by Amy

I've always been a big fan of owls - cute ones, serious ones, realistic, you get the picture.  Design team member Amy Lassiter has created a one of a kind owl tower for our Artists on Block hop.  I love the combination of metal, laces, and fancy paper Amy used to create her mixed-media "artsy girlie" owl tower.

Here's Amy - telling us a bit about her Block Tower: I made my blocks “artsy girlie,” with plenty of paint, lace, stenciling, stamping and more. I love owls, so I wanted the owls from 100 Proof Press to take center stage.

The bottom two blocks, I spread out, and before assembling them, used my gelli plate, stencils from Stencil Girl, paint, and mists, and layered them full. I then splattered paint all over them, in light and metallic colors. The top two blocks were covered in papers from 7 Dots Studio’s new collections, and also splattered on for the glitter fun. After stamping with black ink, I colored the owls with Pitt Big Brush pens from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft, and used watercolors for softness. The edges of the blocks are also distressed.

Layering on trims and little bits of metals, flowers, and feathers, really added to the sweetness of the whole project. Here’s a look at some of the individual block sides:

What's that on top?  An acorn! - I love it!


There's a more details about Amy's tower on her blog, sparklingnome.  So stop on over and check out her delightful blog. 

And if you're interested and want to learn more about these blocks, you can connect with The Artists on the Block on Facebook, and their blog.   We have even more block hopping to do this week - so stay tuned.
