Scrapping Outback challenge

Hi again.

The layouts are coming along very nicely, thank you very much! I'm really enjoying the time in my craft space.

This page is for this month's Scrapping Outback challenge. I really like the inspirational pictures as part of the challenge (and you need to include at least one chippy).

I want one of these drinks! Right, back to scrapbooking....Here is my take on the image...

I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist as well as gelatos to colour the gorgeous feather chippys.

I also love using skinny tape - I only have four of them! They are from Close To My Heart and they are solid colours which is lovely.

Now, about this embroidered feather. This embellishment is the one reason the layout took me FOREVER to finish. I have one of the Amy Tangerine embroidery kits but I don't use them often. I attempted the feather and boy, it was tricky to do. I started twice over :/ But I was determined! And I love the outcome. Don't you?!

I really enjoyed using these colours. They were a mix of dark yellows, orange-but-quite-orange, corals and light reds. A really interesting combination.

Until next time :)
