I picked up some lovely feather chipboards from Scrapmatts when they were in town for Craft Alive in November and Triple Treat in December, not sure I had an exact plan at the time... just like feathers? lol

When I was looking through my stash of Scrapmatts it occured to me the top of this COULD be a dreamcatcher.... well, it could -

So I snipped off the semi circle and used the strips to add more to the dreamcatcher part, using twine to attach or a little authenticity!!
A little washi tape behind in co-ordinating colours,

The feathers were -
Misted, added Crackle paint, Alcohol inks, reinkers, Izinks,
just about anything that was in these colours?

Then sprinkled some Flower soft and Prills and let it all dry!!

Then just adhered all of those feathers - largest to smallest - so they looked like they were flowing down...
and added some more sprinkles with the mist...and,
