Bought My Own Owl Pillow from Society6

I have been wanting to get this pillow cover of my own design from Society6 for a while now. Shipping to Canada is $10 so I had to wait for either free shipping day, which is rare, or some sort of worth while discount. A 20% sale came up so I purchased an 18" pillow cover since I have an old Ikea pillow that is just black and I will cover it.

I had bought a pillow from another designer's store a year or so ago and I was floored by the quality! It was way Beyond my expectation. The print was Awesome and the pillow material was top notch quality and craftsmanship.

This design below is my own design. It was quite a few hours of work to get this stencil look to one of my old barred owl photos back from 2012, a lovely resident Barred owl who we saw several times on our walks near the shores of Lake Ontario in Whitby, Ontario. I did some flower shapes in the background, used fibre textures, blending layers, and just played till I got what I wanted. My file probably has 15 layers in it lol! Many get combined once I know I am fine with the individual elements but it still is a huge file to store and took a long time to get this design from my individual elements and idea :-) In the end it turned out way different than in my head but I was happy with it none the less! That is often how free hand designing goes from visual mental idea to finished design :-)

I look forward to receiving my pillow cover!
