I love birds, and I usually post something bird-related on social media on Fridays. This week, the focus is on feathers and art.
My geese and chickens shed (molt) their feathers annually and that means lots of feathers around the yard.
I always collect the feathers for “someday” and I finally found a purpose for them. Making prints!
I spent some time washing the feathers, figuring out the best mix of paint/water, and printing techniques. It was a messy process, but I am happy with how they turned out.
Here are a few samples of the feather print greeting cards, available in my shop now.
