Angel

I realise this may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I'm really proud of this. I wanted to make something to hang in my bedroom of Maddie as I have no pics of her in there, just some of her big sister. As I like to faff around with photos on't computer, I used one of my fave images of her from her Christening when she was 19 months old. I played around with the hue and saturation to make her blue eyes stand out a bit more and her skin paler. I then printed it and cut her out and had a good old play! T'was fun :-)


I used an 8" square piece of mountboard, bazzill bling card in shades of blue, rub on wings, a dovecraft gem word, grungeboard crown & swirl, lots of prima flowers, lots of ribbons, eyelets and silver acrylic paint. Maddie is my angel as she was sent to me after 2 miscarriages! This is one of my favourite things I've made.
