Hello! My name is Cristin and I am both excited and honored to be a part of the Mixed Media Place Creative Team!
Today, I would like to show you what I call an altered art feather! I started with just a plain feather from the craft store. Then I used Perfect Pearls and Finnabair’s “Fishnet” stamp. I also used Art Alchemy acrylic paint to spruce up some old metal embellishments.
As well as some Twinkling H2O’s to give my ephemera some additional sparkle. Once I had everything assembled I decided that I also wanted the feather to be able to stand on its own… so I found a rather large cork from a wine bottle, and gave it a coat of the Art Alchemy Metallique Steampunk Copper paint.
Then, I pushed the stem of the feather into it. It works perfectly!
