Trending: Feathers (Part 2)

It’s Ashley again, back with part two of Trending: Feathers! Last time, I covered the fantastic assortment of new scrapbooking products available with feather motifs. Today we are going to look at finding feather products outside of the scrapbook store and craft aisle.

First up is an item I haven’t seen embraced by the scrapbooking world yet (or, again)… feather metal charms! There is a huge selection available online through sources like independent Etsy shops, and I bet you could find them in person in jewelry and beading stores. Here are a few of my favorites I’ve seen recently:

Feathers are a hot and trendy fashion, home decor, and art-inspiration item right now! Seen in everything from feather hair extensions, earrings, feather screen printed clothing, to watercolour wall art, scrapbooking is not to be left out! Fortunately a few scrapbooking companies have already jumped on this trend, and there are products made just for scrapbookers. Today I am going to take a look at feather-inspired scrapbooking products currently available.

Several scrapbooking companies debuted new lines featuring a good dose of feathers last month at CHA Winter 2013. As a feather-lover, I was excited to see these new releases as there were relatively few available in the scrapbooking world until now.

Jenni Bowlin Studio came out with a fantastic new line that is just chock full of lovely feathery goodness.

Jenni’s new feather rub-ons come in black, gold, and silver. I love that there are different styles and sizes included! Four of the designs even match previously released Jenni Bowlin Studio stamps and digital cut files, which means you can layer these feathered beauties.
