Feathers...Feathers...and more feathers

Bella Blvd's latest CHA release contained feathers! Not just paper feathers but actual real feathers! AND they come in every color of the rainbow. They are beautiful. I was thrilled when I got the assignment to create with them.
I wanted to show you how I created my layout with the feathers.
I started out with a 1 1/2 inch circle punch, my tiny attatcher (a stapler would also work), a scrap of white cardstock, and a feather.
 The first thing I did was punch a circle out of the white cardstock
The next step is to attach the end of the feather to the edge of the circle with the tiny attacher

Then I continued attaching the feather to the edge of the cardstock circle.
When I was finished this is what the back of the cardstock circle looked like this:
 This is what my finished embellishment looked like:
I added a crochet heart to the middle of the cardstock circle on top of the feather to cover up the small amounts of white cardstock showing through.
And here's how I used them on my layout:
I created the background for this layout using Bella Blvd's designer tapes and white cardstock. I simply created a rainbow pattern with the tapes.

And here's the completed layout...
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic day :)


  1. Oh my goodness, Becki, this layout is phenomenal!!!! Saw it on Bella's blog and came right here to tell you how much I love it! What a fabulous, out of the box way to use the feathers! I am a new follower to your blog :-)

    1. Thank you so much Andrea! you made my day! So glad you loved my project! ~becki

  2. Smart! If this were my assignment, I would have ended up just tucking the feathers in somehow--which is why I'm not a layout designer! :) I like the way the feathers move the eye up the page and then back down the page. Nice job.

    1. Thanks Amber. I'm sure if you were given that assignment you would have come up with something that surpassed my creativity :)
      Hugs lil missy, I miss you tons and tons!

  3. Becki - I love what you did with the feathers - so smart, and very eyecatching colors too!
