Silly Olivia

Hi Friends

Today I want to introduce you to Olivia!  Yep, that's what I named her.... Olivia Ostrich.  I went over to the Friday Mashup today to see what challenge was posted, and, lo and behold, punch art!!!  I just commented in a recent blog that punch art was going to be a trend for awhile.  So I just had to play.  I wish I could say Olivia was an original, but I saw a similar Ostrich on pinterest which gave me my inspiration.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with "Pom Poms". 
  • Create a project with "Punch Art:.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Punch Art project with Pom Poms on it". 
Check out the great inspiration from the Design Team HERE.. So many great ideas using this challenge! 

I had intended to place pom poms on her, but it just didn't work out.  Olivia is done in Very Vanilla (although she looks white in the picture) and any pom poms I had were bright white... not good.  But I fulfilled the "punch art" part of the challenge.  Here she is.....

and here are the punches I used.  Not pictured... SU's new Fringe Scissors.

I sponged all her "pieces and parts" with crumb cake and her face with calypso coral... other than that it was just a question of punching, experimenting, sketching some details and putting her together.  I hope you like her.... she makes me smile.  Silly girl.

Thanks for stopping by
