The girls and I take a lot of photos every once in a while one turns out that is so compelling I just have to do something special with it. This is one Rhiannon took of herself and her Marly. It is difficult to tell, but their eyes are so piercing. This was built on top of the remains of a very large wall mirror that was broke. It just had a cardboard frame in the back. I gessoed, glued and assembled.
Isn't our Dark Wing Lovely?
This was the pre planning stage I cut Hundreds upon Hundreds of Wings from Tim Holtz wing big die. I will add more process photos soon
They were loosley tacked together. Then I glimmer misted the heck out of them and let them dry overnight. Once they were dry I fluffed the majority. I emboss with TH wing folder on top of some for more detail. Note the cats wings and the hair wing emboss. I also played with layers of mist till I got the right shade for the hair wings. They were each individually cut by hand after embossing.
