Your pages are amazing! Love how you used the paper feathers along with some real ones. Thanks for the inspiration!

Real and 3-d feathers make me gag. Strangely, I love the shape/ lines of paper feathers. Weird.

Not a feather fan. I think I have an aversion to real ones that keeps me from even trying to use the paper variety.

No, not a fan at all. I think it's because I wouldn't know what to do with them... But that would be a great challenge for sure.

I like the idea but can't see myself just putting a feather on a page because it's trendy. It needs to have a purpose.

So I'll have to take my kids to the bird-park, beach, farm, etc???

I like the wood veneer, paper, and Bella Blvd. feathers. I would like to try some of those on my layouts. I don't think they are or will be a staple just a fun embellishment. I didn't like them at first but they have grown on me!

I can see myself using a few on a page or two of my kitties bird watching but after that, not happening.

I've used one or two of the wood veneer ones on a layout, but they are not one of my favorite embellishments to use.

I got some veneer feathers as part of a kit that I ordered. I have used them, and I think that I will grow into the feather trend, but honestly I feel like I'm awkward when I put them on my page.

I do like the layouts that I've seen that use feathers. I just don't feel it usually when I used them on my layouts.

No, totally contrived! Especially the true to size - I could see a tiny feature as an accent ...maybe?

I think they are cute. However, I don't think I could ever use them on a layout. I scrapbook a lot of baseball layouts, and I don't think baseball and feathers mix too well.

And Biochempea-- I loved your feather layouts!

I'd never use real feathers on a layout. I do have some of the JB paper feathers, though. I used one once, but I find they are a overwhelming on my 8.5x11" (and not super embellished) layouts. I love the fact that they are double sided, though. I might end up using the other two on cards.

I could see using the odd veneer feather, but not enough to justify buying a pack.

I think they have their place. I tied a blue feather (stole it from a 'duster' I had and washed it) to a piece of yarn and used it on a kitty page. I have visions of tucking some small ones into flower clusters but that hasn't happened yet.

I like them. I'm not a literal scrapbooker, so I'm not bothered by the fact that I don't have bird pictures to use them with or whatever. For me, they almost symbolize wishing or dreaming... Like a wish in the wind. In the Forrest Gump movie, the feather supposedly symbolized destiny.

I can tell it's not my thing. I wouldn't have the first idea how to use it on a layout.

Not really a huge feather fan. I have some of the SC wood veneer ones and I haven't used them yet. None of the paper feathers have really appealed to me, I think because I don't like that kind of fringey look they have. The new ones from Jenni Bowlin coming out this CHA are kind of cute though. The printed ones and the chipboard ones don't have that fringe look, they are just the general outline of a feather. But I can't think what I would use them on.....

I loooooove feathers! I'm going to be drawing and cutting my own feather shapes to play around with, I think. There's a feather stamp in the set from Amy Tan's first collection that I love and need to try to use more.

I guess my LSS does not. I would have used them on a layout about birds if my LSS had sold any that weren't in funky colors like purple and pink. Since my LSS wasn't able to sell me any feathers I liked, I haven't jumped on board the feather bandwagon yet.

I've seen @biochemipea layouts on instagram and I like the way she used them. Just not sure howmhave would use them, but I've said that about other trends and ended up loving them.

I don't like the veneer ones, but I have used a couple of real ones on LO's.
I'm not huge into the trend though, a little is enough.

I have used them on layouts, but not really my thing--- just don't really get how to use em on a layout- I always feel the scale of the feathers are way too big compared to the pics and other embellishments- not a fan
