So I may be sort of procrastinating by writing here instead of doing work but I feel sort of stumped. It's times like these that I wish I had a crit group to work with. Or a teacher that was coming by during class time to look at my work. But isn't that what this blog is for? Please help!
As I mentioned in my last post I found a pretty nifty tutorial for making feather garlands. I started working on some and thought I would combine the garlands with one of my painted sticks. So I did just that... but something isn't quite right and I can't put my finger on it. I feel like maybe I potentially hate the look of the metal findings.
Here are some beautiful feathers in bulk.
I would gladly hear what you have to say. If you think I should just scrap the whole thing and start over I'll hear that, too. But I will probably still mess with it for a while. ( :
Ten Minutes Later... an update.
I think maybe this works! I tried to make a smaller garland to string across the whole stick but the bulk of the feathers made it awkward. But these little scallops cover the feather tops pretty nicely. They aren't glued down yet. I may get a couple of larger birds for the stick, too. I still think balance is a problem.
Phew. It's like a look inside my brain. ( :
