I got this hankering yesterday that I wanted to use this panel I got on sale at Hobby Lobby because I liked the brass flower hangy thing. It said welcome--and something else I don't remember. So I scrounged up my little screw driver and successfully removed the hangy thing and started the piece. I was concerned that the collage paper edges lined her face too much so I decided to smooth it out with Wood Icing (my new favorite thing for texture.) It didn't smooth the face but added texture which actually I didn't mind after I finished painting the piece. But I did have a few minutes of angst over it. I liked the quote because I imagined our guardian angel's wings get stronger when our thorns and stings from life get too much for us.
