Scrapware inspiration

I have just updated the Scrapware blog with a few layouts, and thought I'd share them here too. I just love the "bird" trend at the moment, owls, sparrows, and now peacocks and feathers! So much so, that as you would have read before, I designed some of my own.

This layout features my new feathers. They come in a pack of three, in small and large. I have used a large feather on this layout and have created a "feathered" look on the raw chipboard by dabbing lines of white ink along the spine of the feather. I have also used Scrapware's new funky bird, clock hand and "Impact" lettering. The bird and lettering have been "double" inked, first with khaki, then gold.Scrapware's chipboard looks fabulous in the raw...the natural colour adds a great neutral embellishment on the page. Once again, I have used the funky bird, but have perched him on my "Emeline" flourish. Last, but not least, here's my peacock in use. I have inked and glittered the bird, then raised the wing and heart tips on foam tape. The saying "proud as a peacock" sprung to mind when I first saw this photo (by Janine), so I decided to incorporate that into my title and embellish the page with a peacock.

There are some many plays on titles you can use with birds...light as a feather, birds of a feather, proud as a peacock....watch this space for more feathered friends in the future.

Lisa, I don't mean to sound repetitive, but you are _so_ beautiful! Your layouts just further enhance your photos and all that!!

i saw those layouts last night and I was blown away, simply amazing and i love how you leveraged the bird and feather chipboard on your first layout, oh the use of the PP and JB paper is totally wonderful!

And I love the soft touch using the tassels on the Today layout and that bird, I want it to eat it (I'm Chinese after all, lol).

And lastly, I have those papers from Yellow bicycle, I did not know what to do with that sheet you used for background, and so ever more impressive to me to see the way you used it and that glorious peacock, if I have that, I won't eat it, lol.

Seriously, gorgeous, just gorgeous, you and your work!!!!! XXOO
