Try Me Tuesday - feathers!

Feathers are so current and on trend right now, we thought we would use them as our theme for today's projects. So....we are making feathers! It's super easy and you have unlimited choices in color, paper, etc. They don't have to be perfect, even birds' feathers aren't, and they are fun to add to any card or scrapbook page. If you'd like to give this a try, here's a quick tutorial to help you get started.

Here's my take on this fun idea! I started with a soft blue watercolor background and added a cloud for my sentiment. The feathers are the perfect embellishment for the "fly away with me" theme. To keep the theme going, I added a tiny wood veneer bird, and "drew" a couple of birds in flight off in the distance.

The sentiment is from the Fly Away With Me sentiment stamp set. I hope you'll try this fun and easy idea too!
