Scrapbooking | Feathers

This layout turned out nothing like I expected, but those are often the layouts I love the most!

I started off with three Paige Evans feather cut files cut on white cardstock.  I used a range of colours of mists from Shimmerz to colour them up.  I made a wonderfully splodgy black background on 12x12 card and added a few stamped images on top for good measure.

Then the first turn... I couldn't work out how to place my photo without covering up too much of the splodgy background so I chopped the 12x12 up, pieced it back together in a different order and added lots of messy sewing to join it back together.

Lots of messy thread ends stapled into nests work with the free and wild background.  The next turn was to cut a few layers of vellum feathers to layer behind the cardstock ones I had coloured up earlier.  This added dimension and a bit of seperation between the bold strip of mixed media and the pretty delicate feathers.

I embellished with enamel dots and hearts.

This was meant to be a DT layout for Pretty My Page but it evolved...  as I ended up adding layers of the feather cut file cut on vellum and that is not something Pretty My Page sells I am just sharing it as a non-DT layout.  You CAN buy the feather cut file cut on card here - and Lisa-Jane will cut custom sized cut files if you have a particular layout design in mind.

Here's the video:
