This heart is for Ann.
A Birthday valentine easily mailed to my friend. I love to paint backgrounds and then figure out the best place to cut out the heart shape. It crops and creates a unique background for my little art angel to live on.
Handmade angel ornaments made from paper clay. They look like cookies! I rolled out the paper clay and laid my printed angels out on top. Using a knife, I cut around the images leaving a little border. I didn’t realize that the clay shrinks as it dries so next time I will leave more room. Luckily I remembered to poke some holes for the wires beforehand too. It took a long time for the clay to harden up, over a week. Then I painted the dried clay with permanent ink so they would be colorful. Glued on my images with mat medium and coated with matte medium and matte varnish for a finished look. Then came the wires and sweet little glass pearl beads.
