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.
