a bit of fluff and frivol .....

Tea bags and feathers ..... serious fun.  Nothing profound here but the little books I am making for the Open Days are going to be quite cute I think .....

This is a prototype and needs some work - not much though as these are really just a bundle of feathers forming a book and I don't want them to look more contrived.

  1. Your feathers are lovely, Susan, and I love the "ruffled" effect of the book seen from the side - the wavy page edges are very reminiscent of feathers!

    1. Thanks Lisa. You are right about the ruffled edges and as time goes by the pages sink and curl a little more which gives these little tea bag books a really soft 'fluffy' look. Now I just need to improve the feather prints and I am set to make more.

    1. I am a firm believer in the need for frivolity and often set aside frivol days .... not often enough of late but I must remember. And the feathers ..... well who doesn't love feathers really....

  5. Thanks Nancy .... certainly not a novel idea as so many people work with tea bags, but it is fun to see them dressed in feathers .....
