Enough Feathers Lost – Art Journal Page

I got these amazing self carved feather stamps and stencils by the super talented Louise Nelson at CHA. Love her so much for this present and I am playing with them ever since like a happy little kid :)

Enough Feathers Lost – Time to Take a Birds Bath . You always get your feathers ruffled in different stages of your life, right, but there is a point where you have to say ….and move on. chirp chirp ;)

Playing with Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic Paints, Derwent Artbars . I also put a bird on it …now it is trendy- LOL

I am still in Love with feathers. I just asked on Twitter a couple of days ago though which of the trends in craft/home decor and fashion you are tired of seeing?

For me it would be Washi Tape, Chevron and Sandal-Roman-Ancle Boots (if you love any of the three- please please don’t take it personally- when you use it, decorate it or wear it – I am sure it is awesome – take the statement as a tongue in cheek comment ;) !)

Have a gorgeous day

    Washi tape? I am not ready to let go of that one, yet. I was tired of “collage” rubber stamps after the first few but I do dislike them now. I can’t imagine spending full price for a stamp that is so complex and unchangeable.

    Haha, Oh I like your posts. Hihi. I’ve never liked the Sandal-Roman thingies. Probably because I don’t like my toes. But I’m still very much in love with my Washi Tapes. Althought I like to make them myself too.
    I love the featherstamp and the page you made with it. The little birdie is the cherrie on top :)

    Lovely pages!
    I dont like the Sandal-Roman-Ancle Boots now, and I didn’t like them in the 70s either (yes, I’m sooooo old!), chevrons have never been a favourite but I only just discovered how to use tha washi (thanks to CJS) so I’ll give it a chance

      Washi tape is cool – I won’t deny it- it is just pretty crazy that it is like EVERYwhere now ;) I am guilty myself of having piles of roles ;)

    Hate those sandles, but I have ugly ankles. Lol. Love the Chevron, though. You can play with so many colors to get so many different styles and it looks cool on a wall or furniture. Washi tape is over rated and overpriced. 2 out of 3 aint bad. :) Lov ya lots, Nat! And Love your feather art. Very cool.
