FEATHER FUN ART JOURNALING

I've been asked to show my feathers.  I can't tell you why I've been on a feather kick except that I like birds (2 bird themed altered books already completed) so I guess it is a natural to like feathers too.  These two are cardboard (recycle), Sharpie pen, markers, glitter and pearl paints.

These were pretty easy too.  I used double-sided tape on the wire and placed between a piece of music paper folded in half.  Then I cut the shape I wanted, feathered with more cutting and spray/glittered.  Easy peasy, try it.

Markers and Sharpie pen.  Free hand-cut.
These pretties were hand-cut from a candy box.  The cardboard was so pretty in it's silver and gold that I thought, I must do something with them.  I used an ordinary pen (ballpoint) that just so happen to not work for the engraving.

More recycle with these from some product cardboard headed to the recycle bin.  These I painted with watercolor in light pastels.  Then used black Sharpie pen to draw.  Over that I used glitter glue and some pearl paints. Leaves, feathers, whatever you want.  Just fun to do and great to do in front of the TV.  Give it a try.

oooo, I love your feathers. I'm going to have to give this a try - think they would make a great addition to my altered books. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I do appreciate your comments.
I have turned off my verification thing before actually a couple of times, but I always get spam. I don't know why that is, but it is pretty annoying. So I keep turning it back on.
God bless - continuing to pray for you and for the Ukraine!

Those are gorgeous! I love that you thought to use objects around you, like the candy box. You can't turn away from shininess! :)
