For today’s post I’ve made a scrapbook layout and a card using the Fair Feathers Etched dies. The idea is the same on both, a dream-catcher. Besides the dies I also received a couple of other products from this collection, and I really didn’t want to waste them! There are two packages of washi sheets (Washi Girls and Washi Mermaids) and with amazing designs that would make stunning art journal pages, but since I don’t do art journals, I decided to come up with something else. I took a sheet from the Washi Girls set, because it’s got a rainbow of colors on it, and stuck it on white card stock. I first die cut a circle around the sentiment for my card so I knew what I have left of the paper.
Then I die cut a bunch of feathers from the remaining paper. I actually used up all of it! I love that my feathers are an array of color!
I trimmed my photo into a circle and die cut another big circle from a patterned paper from the Fancy Pants On Our Way collection. I placed them on foam adhesive to give them dimension and also so I can tuck the twine under it that I was going to hang the feathers from. Next I hung all the feathers on the twine as well as a few other things like journaling spots, tags and die cuts and glued them in place. I added a few buttons to some of the feathers and a couple of embellishments around my photo. I wrote my journaling on one of the tags, stamped my date, and that’s about it!
As for the card…Like I mentioned above, I die cut the text from the washi sheet which I found to be a great sentiment. I used a basic circle die for this. I then added a couple of different yellow watercolors as well as some black splatters to an A2 size white card stock and let it dry. Then I adhered this panel onto an A2 size top folding card base.
I checked where I wanted to have the circle on my card. Then I just glued 3 feathers on the card front and layered the circle on them. I wrapped some twine around the circle and tied a bow at the top. Done!
I hope I could inspire you in some small way to go and start crafting!
