I just finished teaching my July 5-day Designs Workshop in Rancho Cordova and one of the things that I enjoy about teaching is how much my students inspire me. I pride myself on beautiful samples for my classes and felt that I was lacking in feathers samples...so of course I need to make more! I have also added a new class to teach which is my Heirloom Feathers & Backgrounds and I need more samples for that too! I am challenging myself to create one new sample each day for at least the next week while my feet are on the ground. I wanted to share two of them...threw the third one away.
In my next blog, hopefully by later today, I will be sharing what inspires me the most...my students.
PS: I've received several comments regarding the white flower/feather dresden plate design. I would like to give credit to Darlene Epp's workbook, "The Pocket Guide to Freehanding Heirloom Feathers" for the inspiration for the design. I took one of her sketches and made it my own. You can find this two-book set at: www.trilliumhousedesigns.com. I have recommended this book to numerous students...GREAT resource for inspiration.

gorgeous! Particularly love the second one - will definitely be giving that one a try!
Those samples are exquisite! Love the circles/"pebbles" in the spines of the feathers and your background fills add so much to the richness of the overall design....so Victorian!!!
I absolutely love the flower and feathers design!
Stunning!!! I LOVE the dresden sample.
