Feathers by Lynne Moncrieff


Have you seen the recent additions to the Dinky Stencils? I was immediately drawn to the Feathers – so beautiful, as though they are floating in the air. I worked with this stencil and some new products (Artisan Powders and Distress Crayons) on a That’s Crafty! White/Greyboard Postcard.


Prima Finnabair Cling Stamp Sets:- Rust and Dust, Don’t Forget To Fly
Prima Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Artisian Powder – Chapeliere, Parthenay, Vausseroux
Kraft Paper (I used re-cycled packaging paper)
Extras:- Muslin, vintage button, twine and resin paper (Ice Resin and vintage book text)


Apply Grunge Paste followed by scribbling Distress Crayons onto the panel, misting with water and then sprinkling on the Artisian Powders. 

Stencil the feathers with the darker Distress Crayons, blending with a slightly damp paintbrush and cosmetic sponge. 

Before cleaning the paintbrush, I was able to work any colour onto a scrap of watercolour paper. Onto this piece of scrap, stamp the feather and sentiment, fussy cutting and inking edges. Wrap twine around feather also adhering a button.

The feather and sentiment were layered to the panel along with a torn piece of paper which had been stamped with one of the texture stamps from Rust and Dust, previously stained muslin and fragment of resin paper. 

Until next time,

  12. Another great textural piece! Gorgeous! I love the natural setting for this feather. (We have numerous birds on our property from finches to eagles and have gathered many....except the eagle feathers that are unlawful to have, but we admire them where they lay.) Your great talent for layering all the right materials really give your pieces that organic look. Thanks for sharing another of your masterpieces! inkybru xx
