I must be in heaven.......

cos I'm surrounded by angels. No, it's just the September ATC swap theme for the scrappindippity group on FLICKR. 7 ATCs on an angel theme.

This week I gave up waiting for the library service to find me a copy of Kelly Rae Roberts 'Taking Flight' and bought my own copy. As you can see I dove straight in and here is my first attempt at one of the winsome little ladies which are her trademark style. Didn't feel brave enough to do the eyes so they are closed but pretty pleased with this one. There will be more!!

I have been wanting to use this image in my artwork for a long time - it is a photograph taken by my daughter for her graphics course and I think it is pretty cool. I was saving this for my little 4 x 4 angel book (which is still a WIP) but couldn't resist using it for this swap. But there's no rule I can't use it again!!

Oh WOW Cindy - brilliant take on the Kelly Rae Roberts style. I have the book but have not had the confidence so far to produce my own efforts! LOVE the 'Kick ass' angel too! Two great cards.

Great job on the K.R.Roberts style, isn't her book wonderful? It really is worth buying your own :)
Love your Kick ass Angel card too!

Thanks for dropping by for a visit and the lovely comment, I am trying a lot of painting lately too, different styles hoping to find my own someday LOL.
