Kraft Plus October Challenge

Hi Crafty friends

I couldn't resist this month's Kraft Plus Challenge.

Inspired by nature is the theme, you have to use feathers plus any natural items on your page.

I've being wanting to scrap this photo that I took of a 'Scarlet Honeyeater' Bird at my parent's farm for a while now and whilst walking around I came across a dead branch from the Bottlebrush Trees that surround the farmhouse. I had the maybe insane idea to use it on a page, so I used the small branches to fashion a bird's nest as a frame around my photo and seed capsules. For the background I used water colour paints and pencils to draw a few branches of the Bottlebrush tree with blossoms and leaves. I also used white turkey feathers and hand dyed them with scarlet ink.

Let's not forget the WOW-Words or Whatever Chipboard that I used; Picture Perfect Word Title and Chicken Wire Panel.

Dont' forget to check out WOW - Words or Whatever Website and their new facebook page WOW Creations.

Here is the challenge moodboard and criteria.
