DREAMING WITH THE DRAGONS OF SPECIAL FEATHERS


Hello my lovelies, when I saw Silvia picked the letter V and feathers I was so excited, I have a Valise full of my baby feathers my Magpie Mom had saved for me to start my own nest with, I also had a few special feather I found with them. I just had to make a tag to go along with it.....
The Dragons team here have made some fabulous creations to inspire us all...

This is the Valise, made out of cardboard from a writing pad. I decorated some paper to look like eggs.

                I cut out some strips of leather for the straps..




I used a flat piece of cardboard for the backing then a corrugated piece for the top piece, I made the tree with masking tape, painted the tree with brown and some green and grey for the moss, painted the sky with Fresco beach hut.

I made a feather stamp, and then made some washi tape to frame the tag with it. The large feather my friend Tonniece gave me, I fussy cut it out..



    There eagles are flying around, hopefully they don't see my                treasures and swoop down for a closer look...


 I added a real Quill to the tip, there is a tiny nest in the hole in the tree.....


My beautiful feathers inside, I used a twig to hold it open,for the letter I used a piece of cardboard covered with the same paper and wrote the letter with a calligraphy pen and ink and hung it on the twig

I used some eyelash wool to make the topping, I made a feather on part of it, with a piece of material on the back..


Thanks so much for visiting my crazy nest, I did enjoy making this tag soooo much it was a JOY dreaming with the dragons again, I had company all weekend, lots of laughs and crafting. today I can visit and get back to my desk. I wish you all a wonderful creative week, ((( BIG HUGS )))

                                                 NAMASTE!!!

I do hope you had a lovely time with your 'company', Dianne! Lots of laughs and fun! This is just gorgeous! Your wonderful imagination and gift for thinking in miniature has really taken flight again with this project! I so love home-grown washi tape- so much more creative than the bought kind. That glorious blue sings and the little valise of feathers is a superb concept. You have really dreamed so beautifully with the Dragons again. Thank you for your wonderful inspiration! xxxx

Dianne...that valise is way cool! I love it's construction and the leather straps! So much detail in such a small package! I love that you have a twig holding it open so that all of those gorgeous little feathers can be displayed. Your tag is so pretty. Love the color and texture and how it compliments the valise. <3 Candy
