Feathers for Yanik

It is wonderful to be inspired! I really love to react on inspiration instantly, because of the energy the inspiration evokes and so I did thursday evening. I had seen a video of a woman presenting  two feathers she had received from a Facebook friend of mine. I was so inspired by the beauty of the woman and her loving attitude so I tried to find out what these feathers were about. I went to her blog, where she tells all about a project she is working on. You can read about it here.

I read her instructions for the feather-project and found material I would like to use. And here are the feathers:

Yanik asks us to use a cereal box or something as a base and then add whatever we like to decorate, just make it colourful and with love. I chose some fabric in my favorite colour and added some golden and pinkish red acrylics and ink. I started out drawing four feathers onto the back of the cardboard and glued the fabric onto it. I realized that I could make at least two more feathers from the cardboard and so I did :-) 

This is the fabric I used:

And the first feather I made (and kept as a keepsake):

Sending them off today!!??? I have to get them posted nooooow! Lol
