Scrapbooking Trend – Feathers & Bows (& a Giveaway from Fiskars!)

** This giveaway is now closed **

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. 

(Scroll down for giveaway details!)

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.

Check out all the hair bows in Elsie Flannigan‘s Red Velvet Art shop.  Elsie has also been including hair bows in a lot of her ‘girl’ paintings.

Sian Young made this layout at right which is embellished with both a bow and feather.

Giveaway Details:

Today, we have a giveaway from Fiskars for the "Plumage" stamp set shown above left.  Please comment to this post and tell us what new trend you would really like to use in your scrapbooking projects.  We will leave comments open until Thursday, Feb 5th at midnight EST.  One winner will be randomly selected and announced on Friday, Feb 6th.

    They may not be new but I would love to use some Flash Cards.

    I love the bows and I think working with feathers and plume designs sounds like fun!

    Great stamp set. I would like to start using more doodling on my layouts.

    OMG this stamp set is wonderful, I’m doing more vintage style pages and the features and plumage would give them some extra “pop”!

    Those stamps are awesome. I hadn’t thought of using feathers, but why not? They do look awesome and would really soften some layouts or mini books.

    Since I was a little girl, I have loved Peacocks – they are so exotic! I would love to try these stamps with some watercolors or maybe embossing on some of my cards and granddaughter layouts.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love that doodling is still a strong trend and I am hoping to get more artsy with that in my layouts. Feathers are looking pretty cool too!!

  12. Posted 5 years, 6 months ago | Permalink

    Feathers!! They have always garnered my attention – much more than bows or ribbon. Perhaps because they make such a grand statement or manybe because they are natural elements just as we are that they are so attractive.

    Feathers and boas are always welcome in my craft room and I look for any excuse to use them. I had once made a great little coozie that had a pink feather boa around the top of it; a fashionable way to sip a Tab, don’t ya think?

    Feathers (and peacocks) get my vote.

    Doodling, painted areas, and 3-D features like feathers and scrunched bits of fabric are currently fun for me.

    I’d love to start using some more woodland creatures on my layouts. :D

    I’d like seashells — there are some smaller, flatter type shells that are beautiful. Along with the shells, some “fake” seaweed would be great – just small tendrils

    I really want to try and start doing my pages with more handmade embellishments. I bought some crochet hooks yesterday, and plan on making some crocheted flowers. I also learned how to make lollipop flowers. I bought some felt so I can blend the two trends. This stamp set is awesome. I really love that the peacock is goint to be a trend setter this year. They are beautiful majestic creatures, and can you imagine the colors that you could use with these. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

    the feathers can give a wonderful added touch to all the vintage layouts and albums. a feather is a great way to put a smile on someone’s face and that is what it is all about……….

  76. Posted 5 years, 6 months ago | Permalink

    I’ve use feathers on some of my LO’s but mostly for the chipboard shaped birds. Adds more demension to the bird with feathered wings. So I’m excited to see more feathers. I’ll have to do some feather shopping soon…. Love the stamps and I haven’t tried peacock feathers yet.
