I've been working of my 4x6 photo calendars for the fall craft sale season. A few years ago I had a cute Blue Bird calendar with art work designed by my sister. This year I wanted a cute one so I designed and created this owl. I drew all the pieces. I then printed the body on the back of the designer paper and cut it out by hand. I then printed the wings on card stock or coordinating designer paper ensuring they were mirror images and cut those by hand. I designed the branch digitally. For each owl I colored the branch appropriately and printed it on the 6x6 inch background paper. I cut the beak and feet from coordinating card stock. The eyes are .75 and .5 circle punches. I assembled the paper pieced owl and applied the googly eyes. Once all 12 were assembled I photographed them to add them to my calendar template. Only a few have nods to the celebration in the month. January has a frosty type back ground, February is Valentine designer paper, October has pumpkin coloring and finally Christmas designer paper for December.
You can find it for sale on my Calendar page.
