Stone Angel Collage and a Gift Created

Angels can bring peace into our lives
and when I came across this
beautiful stone angel image


I decided to create a collage entitled "Peaceful Prayer"
incorporating this beautiful piece.

  I've used a number of vintage and recycled fabrics, 
fabric lace, stamped chiffon, vintage laces
with embellishments and ties
from various sari ribbons.

It is available for sale in my Etsy shop
(now Sold!)
You may remember that earlier this year I received
this most beautiful gift from Marie
(Lost Bird Studio blog)
for my birthday.

Well I showed it to a friend of mine who had recently
gifted me some of her old jewellery to use
in my artwork
and she absolutely loved it
I decided to create one very similar using her own jewellery
which she could have as a little keepsake
this is how it turned out.


 As well as incorporating some of her pieces of jewellery
inc. a bracelet and earings as well as
a little teapot - Ros loves a cup of tea -
I used some of her ribbon lace from her Mother's
wedding dress.
It is her birthday today and I am just about to hand it to her!

Thanks dear blogging friends for your loyalty 
in continuing to visit and leave
such inspiring comments.

We really do receive heaps of inspiration from our blogging
friends like this gift above and I hope it continues

  10. I love how you make such memory pieces using treasures that have such meaning to the recipient. I guess I've been doing somewhat the same in my current project by trying to incorporate little embroideries and embellishments that have meaning to my daughter-in-love.

  11. Incorporating personal items into collage work is what truly makes it special. Your Angel collage is heavenly. Every layer and detail you add brings such beauty to your work of HeArt. June JOY...
