Angels, angels, everywhere



Here are some angels I made to get the year off to a good start. I think there cannot be too many angels around, can there? I love the colors and textures. Just a simple pattern with some cool fabric and embellishments and presto, they fly.

There is a lovely butterfly there for you! This is the 2nd post I left for you, as I do not know if the first one worked. I am not the best at computers. xoxoAlways, Barbara

I am sorry that you could not see this message on my blog, but I had it all set up and then went to change the color scheme, and all of my posts disappeared! I don't know what happened. When I went to correct a blog site on my favorite blogs, listing yours as one of them, I accidentally deleted my template! Woe is me. So....here are the directions I received when I received my award from LaniPuppetmaker at her blog site.

Oh Gena - these are fabulous!! Did you use bottle caps to frame the faces in some? I can't begin to choose a favorite - they are all so lovely! Thanks for sharing!

Camellia said...

oh my gosh...i took a doll making workshop TWICE but have not made the time to work on them. Gritty Jane Studios. I love her dolls and could not find any I loved more. I love your angels just as much and now must go and work on some.

Now let me see the rest.

Gena said...

Hi Camelia,

Thank you so much for stopping by and for your nice comments. You are a doll!

Gena said...

Hi Alice, sorry for the delayed reaction. Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I did use bottle caps for the angels, you are so right. I smashed them until they were flat between two pieces of wood, so the smash marks wouldn't show!

The angels reflect a calming beauty and peace...a great way to begin your art year.

Gena said...

Thanks, Jan. Angel energy is always good, isn't it.
