tiny feather finds a home

Steven came to me yesterday with a grin and said, "I found something you could make an inchie with . . . "

If you click on that photo you might be able to make out the tiny, tiny feather that he found! I have been doing a lot of work in my sketchbook recently . . . but I thought a good place for this teeny tiny feather might be the smaller moleskin journal I started during the Your Vintage GlueBook class I took with Mary Green (still available as a self-paced class). I enjoyed that class so much, I recently signed up for Mary's Collage Coterie Online Workshop that is soon to begin on August 15th - whoo whoo! I highly recommend any of Mary's classes. Anyway . . . . I chose the smaller of these two moleskin journals ( 3.5" x 5.5 ") I've been working in, to find a home for my tiny feather.

First, I covered the blank pages with an old dictionary page that included a plover (bird).
I added transparencies, a postage stamp from Sabine Busch in Germany, brown
watercolor crayon and gold pigment powder AND the tiny feather (near the plover).

Here is the finished spread - and one that is mine to keep!
