Ethereal Angels

With very little effort suddenly
on my worktable are these two cards
with the most beautiful angel images that I just discovered!

 More layers of frothy chiffon and laces under and over
the images they go!

Thank you so very much to everyone for your incredibly
kind comments and your purchases - they just keep me creating more
these now are available for sale too in my Etsy shop !

and we can only fly by embracing one another"

Sunshine after Rain brings a New Angel Creation

In my last post I mentioned that we were having
rain and thunderstorms - well after
9 inches of constant rain
over 24 hours
the creek on our property was flowing flat out 

The roar of the water from our back door
sounded like a freight train passing through!
Most of the time this water remains at just a trickle. 

and after the rain comes a cacophony of frog sounds 
as the sun starts flooding in
- such an amazing view from our
garden room
with newly transplanted rose bushes now steaming ahead 

in the company of the white Wisteria and lilac Clematis!

 The sunshine accentuates the vividness of the green 
ornamental Grapevine along the verandah
the beautiful Ornamental Manchurian Pear trees.

 Everything is feeling so fresh and renewed again
filling the plants and trees with new found energy
in readiness for the long
Summer ahead.

 Hopefully many an evening over Summer
will be spent under this grapevine
as we start to tie our vine curtains back to let
in the light once again!

From my studio the Angel "Messenger" has been created.


She's now available for sale in my Etsy.

in the hand that gives the rose".

Angels at My Door Again!

 In my part of the world when we should be 
seeing blue skies and Australian Summer sunshine
we are experiencing
constant rain, storms, thunder and lightening
but it is warm and for that I am grateful
I continue to create it seems a never ending pile of
Angel greeting cards.

and quite frankly I really couldn't think of many more
things to please my heart and soul
 as the exercise in choosing and manipulating fabrics
like satin, silk, chiffon and lace

 keep challenging me to find an expression that is truly me

but one which is ever evolving!
Can you see how much I love texture and layering?

 The subjects may often be the same but

 the way in which they are incorporated into my artwork
I never tire of.


If you love angels then one of these could be yours
as they are now available in my Etsy shop.

More Christmas Greeting Cards

I hope you are enjoying these beautiful images
just as much as I am
I couldn't resist creating with them - 
i.e. more Vintage Angels and another Madonna and Child
so more Christmas Greeting Cards are now finished
and ready for sale in my Etsy.

This card and the next card almost have a 3-dimensional
effect in the way that fabrics sit on the card
these soft burn out velvets and chiffon
make this possible.

I have used similar fabrics (but not the same)
in both cards

as I felt they suited the images.

They don't come in a set but they could
as they look so complementary

when you see them together.


I'm linking this post to What's It Wednesday over at
Ivy and Elephants -  you may acquire some
Christmas inspiration over there!!!
Thank you all for your kind comments
I do appreciate them
I hope I am able to give a little inspiration back.


Isn't this such a beautiful quote:

A single friend my world" .....L.F. Buscoglia.
