I love these unique geometric style tattoos by Sasha Unisex a tattoo artist from St.Petersburg, Russia. She paints these beautiful tattoos in vibrant watercolors before inking them onto the skin. Unlike most tattoos, her tattoos are not outlined and are shaded in a way that they give a three dimensional effect. Her subjects vary from owls, bears, rabbits, giraffes to landscapes in bold ink colors - blues, purples, blues, and greens.

Let's begin this new week with this cute tutorial on how to make an owl gift box by Lisa of Basic Grey. We have seen numerous owl craft projects online created with toilet paper roll, I featured some adorable ones in the past here. Just recently I stumbled across a slightly different tutorial which uses an oatmeal box (the one you can get from a dollar store) instead of the toilet paper roll. The oatmeal container will make a bigger box which is perfect to hold candy, thank-you note or a small gift.
For this easy project, you will need:
- paper sheets
- chiffon flowers for eyes
- scraps of black, white, and orange cardstock
- a glue stick
- paper trimmer
- an oatmeal container

Long Eared Owl
I leave you for the weekend with these new (to me) sculptures by Australian paper sculpture artist Anna-Wili Highfield, photographed by Petrina Tinslay. Anna-Wili, whose work I first featured here, creates these sculptures using torn paper, ink, watercolor and thread. Her sculptures are often inspired by nature depicting animals and birds, and look pretty realistic considering she uses different paper as the medium for her work.
Have a good weekend my friends. I 'll see you on Monday!
