This is my first project for the Mix It Up Challenge Blog.
I had made a background in my journal, at least a year ago, and didn’t know how to continue. I’d used Tim Holtz printed tissue paper as the base, then added gesso, and lastly, Gelatos for the colours.
I did some stenciling using gold texture paste (you can see it scattered around).
Every time I went to do something on it, I was stuck. I just couldn’t find the right thing. Then, when I was looking for something for this month’s project, I came across a feather stamp and die set. They are from Hot Off the Press, but were freebies in a magazine over a year ago.
The second I saw them in my stash, I knew exactly where they were going.
This challenge has a twist of embossing (wet or dry), so I stamped out the feathers using coloured embossing powders, then die cut them.
I stuck them down, attempting to make them look like they are floating downwards. I then typed up my phrase – Don’t let life ruffle your feathers – on my computer, and printed them out.
I cut the words out and stuck them down, then drew borders around each word.
I hope you enjoyed my project, as much as I did making it.
We would love to have you join us on the Mix It Up Challenge Blog. Do stop by and say hello, and perhaps even submit a project!
*I am also adding this to the STAMPlorations May Mixed Media Challenge.

Beautiful journal pages. I love those colored feathers you used on it along with the other images.
Thanks so much Verna. It was a long time coming, but I knew it would eventually work out.
Very interesting design and a great sentiment!
