BRAVE – Mixed Media Feathered Headdress

So here I am again Lulu Art lovelies!! Hope you have all been well and finding time to be crafty!!BRAVE - Dani

This was a fun tutorial to do for you… but I think it could almost  be called a “project” rather than a tutorial. It does get a little …involved ( even though quite a simple idea)

You may need a little stamina and probably a good Netflix series to get through and complete this one!! (I did!! 😉 )…  but I know it will return you a pretty piece to hang on your wall.

The video may need a little stamina aswell at 15 minutes but it will be worth it to get to the end…

I have given you some help though, breaking it up into steps
Step 1 – various ideas for feathersBRAVE - feathers2
At 6:20 time in the video you will find Step 2 – fronds (about 1 minute) & flowersBRAVE - flowers
At about 10:00 (mins) in, I start Step 3: the assembly of the entire headdress. You can see all the completed items to the left of the screen.BRAVE - background

So..
If you just don’t have 15 minutes to spare in one sitting… but can spend 5 … then scroll through to each section at different times… or… zoom directly to 10 minutes in…  and you can see how it all ended up!! BRAVE - Done!

I  hope you get to watch the whole shebang… & that you have a go at it yourselves. Please tag me when you do, so I can come check out what you have made.
Have Fun & Enjoy. Always!!
