calling all artists and creative souls!

Join our creative adventure

Would you like to spread your wings and be a part
of an art adventure with artists from all over the world? 
Canadian mixed media artist, Yanik Falardeau
is holding an art installation and exhibit in November,
and is looking for artists to collaborate.
It's as easy as creating a feather out of recycled materials.

Here is the tangled feather I sent in.
I used the template Yanik provides, and an empty cracker box.  I glued the 2 pieces together for stability, and applied a coat of gesso to both sides.  I painted a light water-colour wash, mixed with an iridescent mixing medium.  I added tangles with a Pigma Micron 01 & 05, and shaded with a Fabrico Cool Gray marker.

  2. It was entirely my pleasure! I think your idea is just brilliant. I checked out your map-gadget . . . how cool is that?! The feathers you have so far are fantastic. I'm going to visit my daughter in Edmonton next week, and I think making feathers with my granddaughter will have to be on my agenda!

    1. Thanks! Hope you'll consider participating and sharing with your "peeps". She has received some really beautiful and colourful feathers already. I think having some black & white tangled feathers will give the artist great contrast to work with!
