The tribal trend is everywhere this season and I showcased my take on this trend in the latest issue of VintageKC magazine.
Every issue, a handful of creative bloggers and artists are tasked with creating a craft around a theme. The theme for this issue was tribal.
Tribal may be on trend, but I’m much more of a neutral person. I tend to choose patterns for my home with great care—and sparingly. So, I wanted a small-scale project, where I could make something that I’d actually want to use in my home.
I choose to paint plain feathers in simple tribal patterns. This project turned out to be just enough tribal for me. The painted feathers display bold patterns, but on a small scale. I can easily stick them in vases or add them to vignettes without the look going over-the-top tribal.
