Owls and Digital Manipulations

Hi my blogging friends, how are you?
I know it's been a while since I posted or did my blog visits, life has been rather busy.

So what have I been up to lately? I have been having a little fun creating with some beautiful sheets of felt I purchased from, called National Non Woven Felt, I just love it, and I have been shopping there for some lovely threads too, I love the Oliver Twist packs, and was going to show you some, but this post may get too long.
I actually made these cute little owls two weeks ago. 
This blue one is my favourite.

I then designed a little needle book and I am really happy how it turned out.

You can see below the steps I took to make this little project, and I am trying to show you the finished inside but blogger is giving me fits here.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. 

I have also been playing in PSE9 , but not as much as I would like.
I am also learning how to use my new camera, going to a DSLR after my little Coolpix point and shoot, is rather overwhelming. I just want to know how everything works, and right now LOL.

This is as you may guess, called "Authentic". A photo of some Grape Hyacinth from the grocery store processed with Kim Klassen textures. The link to her site is in my side bar if you have yet to see her beautiful textures.

I hope to be back sooner than last time, 
Until then,  keep living creatively  :)
