A Feathered Friend

Hello, here is a page I made for my Trends on Tuesday post over at ATDML you can read a bit more about the inspiration behind the page there - and the trend is feathers hence the picture of my Dad with a bird who took a shine to him!

I've been having a play with inky backgrounds (check out Kim Price who inspired me to have a go at this) and yes my paper is fairly wrinkled - but it flattens out in the album so I am not too worried.  So I started the background with yellow and green mists. The papers are all from October Afternoons 9 to 5 range and I had a go at a really ruffling the edge technique from Rachel Elliot in Scrap365 - since I am partial to distressing papers I really enjoyed doing this!  I used a resist technique on the Studio Calico feathers with clear embossing powder (again in Scrap365 this month) and then made my own larger feather out of paper.
