Tip 1 Yes, it can be done! Stamp directly onto your feather for a free-flowing look. Adhere your feather to your layout before stamping. Choose a lightweight feather so some ink can bleed through to the paper and give you a dimensional look. (tip left page)


Tip 2 Want to add more journaling but keep up the feather theme? Attach a feather to paper using removable adhesive and lightly spray ink. Remove feather and trim around image. Add journaling and attach to your layout. (top right page)


Tip 3 Trim down your feathers to create an embellishment, like this funky heart that also serves as a flag for extra journaling. (bottom left page)
