Mr. Owl!

Well this one was a real adventure, and I can’t believe how well it turned out, all things considered. First of all, the tutorial is in Russian (I think, please correct me if I am wrong), second of all, I don’t speak Russian.

It just looked way too cute for me to try, so I gave it a go and I am really happy with the end result! My boyfriend was also very happy with the end result… at the end of the day he discreetly picked it up (or at least he thought it was discreetly), and took it to his treasure shelf, meaning it is his now. He’s so flipping cute.

Here’s the owl, and the link to the tutorial is below:

Owl Tutorial

My pigeon spooker

I found out there is a naughty pigeon trying to nest right outside of my bedroom window, in the middle of my flowerbed. I don’t know about the pigeons where you live but the ones here are pretty noisy, messy and can carry diseases, so I’ll pass. My boyfriend said “we should get an owl and make them crap their pants”, and i got my creative juices flowing. Cardboard, my 20 year old Caran d’Ache pencils, some looking up on the net for what colors and patterns to use and presto! The owl itself was drawn from memory, and the eyes are huge for that extra spook effect hehe :p . Not quite done yet, but this is more or less how it will look in the end 🙂

I hope it works!
