Autumn Feathers

One of my stamping friends sent me some feathers last year and I used them all except for the big one you see here, I decided to use it this year but had to add some of my own.I cut the little one on the left from a scrap of mega flakes paper I had left over and the one on the right I added a few different inks to it to kind of dirty it up.  I tied them with some twine and added a washi tape sentiment and gold border dazzles.  Finishing off with some crystal glaze.

DCWV,-Wild Splendor paper
Spellbinders - Feathers
Studio G - Washi tape
Hot off the press - Thin line border dazzles
Nuvo Crystal Glaze

Sharing some more pictures today, these were on the Western side of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Some of the leaves were so bright that even though it was a misty day they still shined through.

It isn't often we take pictures at a rest area but this little guy was too cute, he would run around this garbage can and then hop in and rummage around and then pop back out, his little friend wasn't too sure about us but this little guy wasn't too scared.

My hubby was able to get a few better shots then I did, mine were pretty blurry.

We were driving along and saw that a few cars were parked along side of the road and so we stopped to and found out that it was because of the pretty waterfall.

I have one more set of pictures to share next time, when we headed down into Wisconsin.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!

Most beautiful feather ever, nicely arranged into a gorgeous fall card! Ohhhh, and your photos! You know I love seeing them. It's like a travel log and I've got the bug. Enjoying staying home for the time being, but will soon enough be on the road again. That waterfall is so beautiful!

So appreciate that you share your excursions and adventures, Connie - especially since I'm unable to do those things! I feel like you and I are having a cuppa, chatting and looking at your photos. It's a pleasure seeing things through your eyes, and enjoying the beauty that is important to you. Your feather arrangement is beyond words! I love the autumn colors, but more, I like the colors on the white words (do you know what I mean?) each feather is unique, and so pretty! Lovely card. Wishing you a wonderful week-end! hugs, de

You have coloured the leaf into beautiful autumnal hues, Connie. I love the three leaves tied with a bow into a pretty arrangement. More lovely photos of your autumnal trees. That's a serious camera you have there.
