Today I thought I'd show a few process photos of the making of the selvage angel. I started the wings. Like the Tinkerbell wrapping paper I drew my template shape on? :-)
I decided to make each wing out of two sections to add a bit more interest. It allowed me to angle the selvages in each part.
Because I am using brown tones and more muted colours than in my usual selvage creations, I am using just selvages with words of the same muted colour tones.
Next up, the face. (And of course, everything needs tweaking and shaping. It will not be so blocky looking in the end ... or I hope not anyway.)
