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.
