Tag Sale Angel


Tag Sale Angel

A couple of odds and ends I've been playing with today. I've been working on the angel for a while. I drew her one night when I just wanted to play with my watercolor paper. I had planned to leave her unpainted but then I decided a little color was in order so I did a very watery acrylic tinting. She is sewn onto fabric that is in turn sewn onto more watercolor paper. There is fabric, some trim, vintage buttons and some pretty lacy white paper. I thought she looked like she was trying the wings on in front of a mirror so I guess that's why I added the price tag.

Today I was looking through flickr pics and saw the cutest little felt bunnies. I remember seeing them back in the spring and liking them. I wanted to make something similar but for winter so I made this little snow man. I think I'll make a bunch to hang around.

The pink "doily" behind him is something I made a while back. I was playing with some cotton yarn. I thought it would make a good contrast so you could see him.

Hope everyone has had a good Monday (or Tuesday morning). I have had a fairly lazy day. Tim offered to make supper and we had yummy shrimp in vodka sauce on fettucini noodles and a salad. It was very good and now I need to go clean up the dishes.

I especially love that snowman. There's just something about the expression on it's face that's so cute.
