Flutter Your Feathers by Fliss Goodwin


Hello! I have another tag to share this week as I seem to be addicted to them at the moment! This one being cool in blues, the perfect antidote to the current heatwave we seem to have here in the UK at the moment.

Step by Step

I chose to use the largest white/greyboard tag and coloured this by adding dabs of multi surface paint near the top (I used bright blue, light blue and white), spreading the colour down the tag with an old store card. I repeated this step until the tag was covered, messy but great fun!

I next added some stencilling for detail, starting with the feathers Dinky stencil and bright blue multi surface paint in opposite corners. I then used the distressed harlequin background Dinky stencil with white multi surface paint randomly over the painted background.

I decided to add some more detail so painted lines round the right hand edges of the diamond shapes with mustard yellow multi surface paint. I drew around the feather shapes with a white Posca pen, adding more detail with the same pen plus a black Posca pen and purple multi surface paint.

I painted a white/greyboard match for my bird stamp with purple, lavender and mustard yellow multi surface paints, then stamped the bird on top with black pigment ink and hat embossed it with clear powder. I then added a little more detail with my Zig clean color pens.

I glued my painted bird to the background, then stamped my chosen affirmation on a scrap of mixed media paper with Archival Cobalt ink and cut this into tiles, gluing to the tag. I finished off with a scrap of toning wire ribbon tied through the top.
