Even the ones that are not brilliantly coloured or exotically shaped are just wonders of nature. I love looking at them really closely and drawing them and I have to stop myself picking up some of the manky ones on the ground. However those are fantastic for using with Gelli printing and I will do another post about that soon.
For today I wanted to show you some paper feathers that I have been making.
These are made with old book pages and vintage pattern paper.
They have wire sandwiched in between the layers so they can be twisted and shaped slightly.
They are so delicate to look at but quite strong despite being made of paper.
What do you think?
