Feathers have been popping up around not just in the fashion and home decor world, but also in scrapbooking. And, not just bird feathers, but peacock feathers as well. I also believe that we are going to see more of bows popping up in scrapbook layouts in the near future. Now, I don’t mean how we’ve traditionally been seeing bows – ribbons tied into a bow, but in a new and different way. They are everywhere in fashion and could be easily translated into a scrapbooking project for a cute girly look.

Here are some comments from Angela Daniels:
"My prediction, based mostly on the super cute new 8 x 8 acrylic stamps from Fiskars called "Plumage" (shown at left) is that we’re going to see more and more peacock designs. I also noticed that BasicGrey also had a few peacock inspired designs in their new "Marrakech" line. (See photo at right.) My theory? -maybe it all started with the new Housewife (of Orange County TV fame) who wore the peacock feathered lingerie on a episode this season? I love it when two of my hobbies cross paths. In this case, tacky TV inspiring crafting? It’s just too good."
Danielle Thompson‘s, Kitschy Details digital shop, has several different feather images available for scrapbookers. You can use them in digital scrapbooking or even print them and cut out for traditional or hybrid scrapbooking projects. (Photos below by Danielle Thompson and posted with permission.) Look for more project examples on Danielle’s Kitschy Details blog.
Photo at left shows a layout done by Rita Weiss. Rita uses feathers as a backdrop to her photo giving it a soft look.
Sian Young made this layout at right which is embellished with both a bow and feather.
