Wings! I associate wings with fairies....which are not really my thing.  Bad fairies being devilish I could do, but all I can imagine is Tinkerbell.  More thought....butterflies?  moths?  aeroplanes?  birds?  Whatever I choose, it will have to be an ATC because I'm thinking small wings.

Its at this point that I gave up and consulted my scrapbooks, so this is the result.  First up is a group of fairy-ish little people, perhaps elves?  They're darting off somewhere really exciting, even if that insect needs some persuading - he looks just a little uncertain.  This used up some little pieces of paper and ribbon that I'd saved...................for something  This must have been it.

But it seemed a little bland so I hunted a little further and found this angel with beautiful coloured wings and a thoughtful expression.  

All he needed was a star or two and some vaguely glittery handmade tissue.

Then of course I remembered that, knowing this Challenge was coming up, I had bought a dragonfly punch - not that I had the slightest idea what I would do with it, but trusted that inspiration would strike.   Not sure that I'd call this "inspired", but I like the base image and it only needed one little dragonfly to land on the birds of paradise.

So there you have it.  My take (or two or three) on the things with wings.  Hope you come and play with us at Opus Gluei and show us your lovely work.


  1. I like them all, especially that glorious angel with the handmade paper backing. Blessings!

  2. These are beautiful. I can't even pick a favorite! I like how diverse they all are!


love to know what you think.......
