I've been working on a batch of feathers and showing you the progress along the way, via facebook.  I finished them this afternoon, and although I know that nobody's around on Friday nights because most people have LIVES, I just couldn't wait to show you how they turned out!

I started out with some leftover pieces of thin plywood I had laying around from another project.  Doodled around with different feather designs and settled on a shape I liked.

Cut my feathers from patterned paper:

Added layers of paint and messages.

Drilled holes and hung them by wire, but they still needed something more.  So I added an eclectic mix of ribbons, yarns and old lace from my stash:

I'm happy how they turned out!


  1. Gasp! Your feathers are amazing. Actually, everything you create is amazing! : )
