Challenge #164 - week of Monday 30th March 2015

It's the week coming up to Easter and we are lucky enough here across Europe to have a wonderfully relaxing 4 day weekend awaiting us! Yes, I know we are lucky :-)

So, I was thinking about how to incorporate Easter into the prompt this week without it being all about Easter itself and went to look at my list of possible inspiration ideas. I saw that I'd noted down feathers which is certainly an embellishment trend right now - and has been for some time - and also ties in there with Easter chicks quite nicely I think.

I've pinned a whole lot of gorgeous feather inspiration on our Whimsical Musings Pinterest board if you need some more ideas and here are a few internet finds to kick us off.

I love how the hand-made feathers have been used to frame the central photo. I'd like to try this idea and aren't the colours just gorgeous?

Who doesn't love gold dipped feathers? Or is it just me?

And here's a way to make your own out of washi tape which I thought looked quite interesting. On our Pinterest board, there are a few freebie printable and cut files too. And I know that the Silhouette store has loads of different feathers as I've bought most of them!

I also know that I've made several layouts featuring either hand or Silhouette cut feathers but this was the only one I found! And I know that I have a layout in a less than complete stage somewhere with a feather banner which might be perfect to sort out and finish for this prompt.

So whether you take this challenge literally and incorporate feathers directly on your layout, or maybe give your layout a bird theme of some sort or even go the Easter route, I hope you'll have fun with these wonderfully inspirational, pretty, natural items.

Again, don't forget to check out our Whimsical Musings Pinterest board and share your creation over at the Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#164.


  1. I'm definitely trying to make those washi feathers!

  2. No wonder you were asking the team about washi!

  3. LOVE that getting this all done was such a happy thing! And-- it's gorgeous. 100%, TOTALLY GORGEOUS!
