Leaf Angels

Last year I made a leaf angel with a foil base and polymer.  She has been hanging in my studio overlooking the coming and going of all of us.  We use the door in my studio as our main entrance.  I have had a few people want to buy her but I didn't want to part with her.  I kept thinking I would make more angels someday and wanted her there as a reminder of what I did.

Here she is watching over us as we come and go!

I have a special order for a leaf angel in turquoise, blues and greens so I have been working on a few different ones.  I worked on sculpting a face but didn't keep any of them.  I have a simple design that works for now.  These are the two Leaf Angels that I have made in turquoise...

This one is holding a nest with a blue egg in it and the sign is hanging from her arms.

This one is a little smaller and has a sign around her skirt.

I can see from taking pictures that they both need shorter hair.  That is easily fixed.  I really do need to come up with a better face.  For me it will have to wait.  I think I am ADD when it comes to creating.  I don't like to do the same thing over and over again. 

It is so nice out today!  Happy Spring!
