Proud Peacocks Collage & Embellishment Pack
The Proud Peacocks Collage and Embellishment Pack features papers block-printed by hand, beautiful ribbons from India, Florentine papers, and more - all with a peacock theme and ready for use in your mixed media artwork, art journals, paper crafts, and more!
Each Peacock Pack will contain two full-sized sheets of hand-printed paper and one half sheet. Full-sized sheets measure approximately 9"x12," the half sheet is 9"x6."
You will receive one sheet with large peacocks printed in turquoise on white; these are printed with artist quality paints on Japanese rice paper and are ideal for collage as the background almost disappears when you add a wet medium.
You will also receive one sheet with peacocks printed on colored mulberry paper from Thailand. Colors and peacock imagery will vary from pack to pack.
The half-sheet is printed on mulberry paper using my own hand-carved peacock feather block.
Stunning Trims from India
Each pack contains three different one-foot lengths of these beautiful trims from India. All three have a peacock-themed pattern and are either jacquard trims, or feature designs stitched on fabric. The various patterns available range from about 2" wide to nearly 4" wide.
The designs will vary from pack to pack, but I make every effort to match trims that look good together as well as with the other elements of the kit.
Printed Italian Papers
These stunning peacock-themed prints are made in Italy in the traditional Florentine style and, although it's hard to see in the photo, some of the patterns have gold foil details that make these papers truly special.
You will receive one of each of the patterns shown to the left. The colorful feather print has gold accents and measures about 9 3/4" x 6." The other two pieces each measure about 9 3/4" x 4 1/2," and the peacock feathers also have beautiful foiled touches.
The paper itself is thin enough to make it ideal for use in collage, in your art journal, or for any other project where you want to add a touch of plumed elegance.
Embroidered Peacock Sari Patches
Possibly my favorite element in these packs, these gorgeous peacock patches are all hand-embroidered in India and are embellished with gold and silver bullion threads and studded with sequins and tiny rhinestones.
These lovely patches make a stunning focal point for the cover of an altered book, in a shadow box or assemblage piece, in your mixed media artwork, or on a special handmade card.
You will receive one sari patch in your kit; each one measures approximately 2" - 4" wide by 1 1/2 - 2 1/2" tall.
Hand-Printed and Painted Peacock Accents
These beautiful hand-colored peacocks are printed using a hand-carved woodblock from India on BFK Rives paper, which is a heavy printmaking paper with gorgeous texture.
Each image is approximately 5"x5" and has also been hand-painted with watercolor and embellished with a touch of gold glitter. You will receive one of these colorful peacocks in your pack.
Please note that these have been printed and painted with water-soluble paints, so make sure to test for color lift before using a wet medium on top of this piece.
Real Peacock Feathers
In a peacock-themed pack, you need a real peacock feather! Each pack will come with one peacock feather which measures about 9" in length.
I like to use feathers in collage as part of a headdress for a mixed media portrait, tucked in as accents on a dimensional canvas or panel, or peeking out from behind a collage in an art journal spread or on a handmade card.
Proud Peacocks Collage Cut-Outs
Last but not least, you will also receive a sheet of my Proud Peacocks Collage Cut-Outs. Each image was carefully selected and edited and is perfect for use in collage work, art journaling, mixed media, and more.
Collage cut-outs are 8.5"x11" and have been professionally printed on 80lb glossy paper.
