Even Angels Have Doubts

"Celestial" is this week's challenge over at Inspiration Avenue. Since I've started the She Art Workshop with Christy Tomlinson last Monday, I immediately put to test what I have learned so far. I can't tell you how much fun I have with this class, I so love to get my hands dirty and be messy. I feel like a child who is playing in the mud. Aah.

And I had fun with my little angel! I got messy on the background for the canvas (this is a 5x5 canvas), made a template with my star punch and then remembered this stamp - I got this one years ago on EBay and don't remember which company it is, sorry. It came with the angel and the text in one part, but I cut the rubber apart into two individual parts (angel and text). For this canvas I stamped the text and then cut the words apart.


I loved creating this little project. My soul was singing!


I am linking this to Sneak Peek Friday as well.

This is delightful! I love the expression on her face. It goes so well with the words, especially the way you've cut them up. Lovely!

What a beautiful piece! Such pretty colors. How did you apply the turquoise background? Love the look!

Cindy said...

What a fun piece - it makes me smile every time I look at it! This little saying could be part of my journey - I understand why you had to have it! I am so loving that turquoise blue I am seeing so many places, and the music paper background! Wings and music always seem to go together!

Blessings,
Cindy

Oh Carola --- I have been out of commission for a couple of weeks and just quickly logged on to my reader. What a wonderful piece of art to greet my weary eyes! This is EXACTLY the kind of art that I want to try on my own some day. I plan to favorite place this page so that I can return and feel inspired at any moment's notice.

Very nice piece. Love the layers of stars and then the turquoise wash over. The words and angel girl add the perfect touch. And from your post, sounds like a lot of fun to create! Wonderful.

I thought that name must be German when I saw it at Marilyn's!
What a fun bog you have here!

I too am a German, living in the UK with my English husband. My thing is writing, which I've always loved to do (as well as read and other stuff), but since I've discovered blogging I do so much more of it.

I'd be very happy if you could find the time to pop over to Friko's World.

Gruss aus Shropshire.
