When I picked up a bunch of handmade paper at an estate sale I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I had an idea kicking around in my head that they would make great angel wings. I used two different kinds.
I cut out my angel wings with one, and tore strips with the other. Then I layered the strips onto the wings, overlapping, and gluing them. Next, a little trimming.
I love the way they look with the light shinning through.
I have a few different shapes I'm working on. Ahhhh, a brief clay break. Very brief. Back to work.
