Say hello to the latest addition in my gallery wall.
Hello you lovely little paper feathers.
There’s just something about these little beauties that puts a smile on my face.
To start, I picked out 3 rather vibrant pieces of scrapbooking paper from my stash. This paper is just one-sided.
And since I don’t have a fancy silhouette machine (shakes fist in the air) I did this old school. By hand. I did a Google image search for “feather outline”. Then I printed the feathers onto the back of the scrapbook paper and cut them out with scissors.
I cut out a few more feather notches than the outline had.
Using those puffy sticker things, I think their actually name is Sticky Doos, I stuck the feathers onto a piece of metallic gold paper that was cut to the size of the frame. I wanted the feathers be off of the paper and have a “raised” effect. As you can see in this picture the sticker circles are ridiculously tiny. It took about 2 seconds before I said “nuts to this” and just cut some strips. So I would recommend using slightly bigger circles.
I took the glass out of the frame to really showcase those feathers.
Until next time….
