paper embroidery feather

Using heavy water color paper. draw your feather of glue a photo of feather to paper to follow your color patterns. I use an Aul, to pre poke the holes make sure you have plenty of space between holes so you don’t tear new holes or over side an hole. its pretty easy you can do backstitching works good or reusing a stiched hole already in place.  then added beads ..fun and pretty. also made a green book mark. working on more of these everyone seems to want these…

my green feather book mark  . I love the colors light and dark greens, and crystal glass beads in the center. beads are all  Glass seed Beads…………….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAyou could even add photo paper and use those Inks you ve been wanting to try. LOL….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I trimmed the extra paper from the sides. and made it all look even.  Then I tore some green paper and glued to USED DRYER SHEET.  Next I Painted the sky blue, and watered down the paint.Dabbed it with paper towel to give it lighter puffy cloud look. made some knot stitch flowers of yellow and some of blue.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAnext I added Shimmer to grass blades, with watered down Pearl Ex powder.next I sewed the glass green beads on , for a flowery look.And the Yellow flowers got a golden stem of gold thread..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThen I added my tree which is made from Sisal Twine,I untwisted it and pulled apart and finger painted it with black and Brown Acrylic paints. also made a nest also with Twine used more paint and added yellow for a slight tinge of color change on the nest. cut and glued branches in place. and tree. added a 3d puff behind the bird. {The Bird was a gift from a swap came with a bunch of die cuts from CANDY LOWEKE..
