#164 inspired by feathers

I'd started this layout some time ago when I was coming to the end of a kit but then left it to sit around incomplete. Something I don't normally do.

I'd had a bunch of die-cut feathers and just wanted to bunch them all up to form a messy banner. These types of banners are proving a bit of an addiction right now and I love making them as full and interesting as possible and including lots of loopy twine and thread as well as anything else that takes my fancy.

So I tracked down the layout which already had the matted papers and the banner and just finished it off.

The title came to me while I was driving and listening to a podcast (no idea which one any more) and that's what drove the photo selection and the journalling.

To comply the layout, all I needed was a photo, a tag for my journalling which is hidden, some splatted mists and a scatter of sequins.

I pride myself on not having any PhDs (Projects Half Done) and knowing that this layout was hanging around was niggling me! So happy to have completed it.

Were you inspired by feathers or in fact, any of the previous Whimsical Musings prompts (full list can be found in the page tab at the top)? Don't forget to link up your creations over at our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery with the tag WM#164 or (whichever number challenge you have taken). We love to see your creations.


  1. oooo...yum, yum, yummy :-)
    All that glittery gold but lighter than air - stunning.
    This needs a frame & a place of honor in your flat!

  2. Wow - so gorgeous! That feather banner is so lush and lovely...the looped twine and sequins are a great addition to it. Your photo is beautiful too. I agree with Leslie - this would look great in a frame!
