Many many years ago someone had loaned us some money to get by. Their only request was that I was to make a very special angel. I had put this project on the back burner for way to long.
but I knew what ever I created I wanted it to be very special. I had no direction on how to proceed with this angel (except large, dressed in white and NO FEATHER WINGS). It wasn't until a few weeks back that I had an idea.
Her bodice is scriptures, skirt is an old dress from Sophia that I Have upcycled into her skirt. Her wings are sculpted made to look like chippy wood.
Facial features are very simple. Eyes are Painted antique shoe buttons secured into place, last but not least a crown made from Fresh Baby's breath.
I would like to go a little bit further into this story..indulge me for a minute.
I was so grateful for this loan, and I was negligent in making an angel that was owed to this person.
Not so long ago we scrapped are old cars that no longer ran, we were not paid in full and on a handshake the person said he would pay us.
this has been nearly a half a year, and still no payment. We have called, ran into him at the store. And yet this person has never paid us.
but I had to forgive him for not paying us, and I knew I once and for all make this Very Special Angel for what I had owed to the person who loaned us money.
