Clearly Besotted May Release Day : Owl Meets Harry

May 1, 2019 at 8:00 am 6 comments

Can you believe it? Release Day has finally arrived.

They seem to speed up every release. I’ve had so much fun cooking up stories to accompany the stamped projects and to finish on a small ‘ta-dah’ we have Ollie and his mad juggling skills.

I rather liked the sentiment from the new set ‘Wise Owl’. As soon as I saw the little apple in the set I just knew that Ollie would be jiggling some. The only issue is that in order to do that amount, you rather need some help, or at the very least, a little magic.

I can do magic without magic…just by using an acetate semicircle ( or rather a crudely cut freehand one) as I could be bothered finding the metal plate to make my dies cut acetate! ).

Ollie, on the other hand was harbouring a deep longing he’d had from childhood that wished he could spin apples. Magically suspend them mid air. Not just juggling- next level super juggling!! He’d always thought that 6 was a fair number. If only.

He knew it could never happen. The magic within him was limited to disappearing a coin under his feathered wing when a unsuspecting owlet wasn’t watching. It’s all in the end of the feathers his falcon magic teacher had explained. There isn’t anything real about magic.

Ollie knew that this was simply untrue and decided to keep hoping. The day that it all became a reality was when he was swooping through a volery of Little Owls, and he saw a number of people having free for owl dance off (sorry). In the middle was none other than Harry.

Harry Pottery.

Only the most famous ‘hoot’enanny organiser in the world!! (Look- I know you’ve come here for the projects, so I’ll try and wrap up the story!) Harry was known to have a little magic up his sleeve…along with lots of brightly coloured feathers, and he stared deeply into Ollie’s soul, and said ‘yes.’

‘Yes?’ questioned Ollie.

‘Yes, but 9’ Harry cryptically replied.

As the music grew louder, and sparks flew, Ollie found himself stood on some books ( which I’ve stacked together using the other images books underneath to create height) and one by one, Harry whizzed some Jazz Apples his way.

Before you could say ‘owl’s well that ends well’, it was magic; 9 gloriously shiny apples, hovering mysteriously over Ollie’s head.

Pottery shouted as he left ‘owl be back’ and Ollie knew his life would never quite reach this height ever again.

Forgive the slightly odd strips of coloured cardstock, it was supposed to be ‘owl magical’ and didn’t quite hit the spot!!

The magic doesn’t stop here though! The full Clearly Besotted release is available at 8pm GMT at the Clearly Besotted store and also at Simon Says Stamp!

Whilst you’re waiting for them to go live, do flit over to the Clearly Besotted blog to see wondrous things! Then soar past Michelle’s as she has a teaser post plus her release roundup a little later!

Thanks so much for joining me again this month. I’ve loved your company!

I also love to know which sets have captured your imagination too!

    You are a hoot (sorry) Keren! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all your stories and cards! When I read “owl be back” I thought we were going to get a surprise appearance from Arnie Owl 😂😂😂. Adorable project, fabulous story xx

    I believe in Olliie, he is as magical as the colored strips indicate and his juggling is super-duper. Harry was right. He’s got all the magic and luck in the universe. Soon he’ll be working on ten in the air. Owlstanding effort, my friend.

    I love the sea horses and the plushies. It’s a toss up – or a juggling act – whether I get the owls too…… this is making my swingometer move to yes…. xxx
