I have a little obsession going on with wings at the moment.
After scouring the internet for a while I found a free template to make paper wings. If you would like to try making some yourself here is the link Angel Wings
This frame was laying idle in my craft room, the glass had been broken some time ago, so I removed the back board and lined it with some thin batting, then covered the batting with hession.
It was a bit of a conundrum as to how I would attach the wings once they were made. The fiishes wings are approximately 6″ long and 2 1/2″ wide. The solution was to add some strips of thick card to the back, which I built up to give a three dimensional effect. I added some metal elements from my stash (hearts always seem to go hand in hand with wings), this filigree heart was a junk shop find – part of a very unattractive necklace.
I wasn’t sure whether I had finished at this stage so I added some metal corners to the hession but I can’t decide whether they are required or not. What do you think?
It’s Melbourne Cup Day tomorrow – AKA “the race that stops a nations”. A public holiday for a horse race, I don’t know! I’m not a fan of sports which include animals, so I won’t be placing a bet or watching the race. Whatever you are doing, I hope you have a lovely day. May it also include some crafting time.
