Owl Love - Miss Sophie

In Brave Girl Art School everything is about wings...and right now we are learning to draw birds.  I'm not a big bird fan...BUT...I LOVE owls and butterflies.  So...I decided to use the techniques to make a mixed-media owl.
Meet Miss Sophie
I used modeling paste to texture her front feathers and the tree branches to the right.  I used a technique from Life Book - by Alisa Burke for the leaves on the branch.  The nest was created using book pages, fabric scraps, and scraps of a paper bag.  Then I doodled around the eyes and on the wings.
Here's a closeup of the nest!
Thanks for stopping by!
