Mixed Media Monday - Rust

Meet Ol' Blue Eyes! He is a chipboard owl from Collections, and came in about 14 pieces. He stands about 4 inches tall (10 cms). Each piece of chipboard was covered with rusted paper, apart from the beak that was painted black. Then some of the pieces were stamped with gesso. His eyes are faceted brads, and unfortunately I only had blue - I would have preferred amber.

Ol' Blue Eyes was made for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week, with is "rust". We have a new guest host, Gillian, who has created a wonderful piece for us. Thanks for the fun challenge, Gillian!
