Using my Stash- Paper Feathers







I love the way these feathers turned out. I hope you'll enjoy the process.Using some oaktag or poster board, I started out cutting feathers using my cricut.
 
I found this file on Pinterest. I searched the internet for 30 minutes trying to find the board or link to this person but to no avail. Please use this for your personal use only or search Pinterest for an svg feather file .


Next I created a watery version of acrylic paint and dipped my feathers into the paints. When one color dries you can dip into another adding layers of color. or you can allow the colors to blend into one another. You can also use a brush to dab some color here and there. Adding gold and copper  gave these feathers some shimmer.



Look how really pretty these look.




Next, I laid a stencil on top of the feathers and using the Archival Ink in black, I added a textural look.




To finish these off, I took a tiny brush and painted on some veining.



You can use these to embellish many things including using these in your art journaling and artist trading cards.

See here I used one for a decorative box



Thanks for playing along . 
Don't forget to leave me a comment below and ask questions or tell me what you think.




With love and gratitude,

Michele
