Framed Hoot and Hooterbell

April 3, 2013

I am a little bit in love with the idea of creating framed art to give as gifts to my family and friends, so I decided that I would make one for Ava for her birthday.   I scanned the internet to find photos of the famous (well in my grandchildren’s eyes) Hoot and Hooterbell so that I would have some inspiration for creating.  This is how my creation turned out.


I used the 3″ Circle Originals Die for the head and the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch for the body.  The feet/legs are made from trimming two opposite petals on the Blossom Punch.  The eyes are 1-1/4″ Circles with white 1″ circles in the middle.  The eyebrows are the wings from the Bird Builder Punch.  The centre of the eyes is punched with the circle in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  The mouth is the Full Heart Punch trimmed down with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  The nose is the smallest heart from the Hearts Collection Framelits as are the wings.  All the little butterflies are cut using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  The letters are cut using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz die.   I used the Small Heart punch to create the bow for Hooterbell and also her pocket.  I hand cut the pocket on Hoot.   Colours used to create Hoot and Hooterbell are Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Basic Black, Marina Mist and Bashful Blue.


Fortunately this time, Ava agreed that these birdies were indeed Hoot and Hooterbell.

Bye for now, Kris.
