An Angel Appears!!!

Last week I shared a page in my Altered Book of Stuff that had an angel on it......

This is how my angel "appeared" to me.

I had roughed up the page with acrylic paints to match it up with the tipped in page of my dog sitting by the front door....
As I looked at the drying page I started to see the shape of an angel
It was such a subtle image that I decided to use grey and white chalk pastels to highlight it...
His wings looked like feathers....
and his arms were outstretched.
I built up the layers, slowly and loosely....
until the form was fully visible.
I blew off the loose dust and sprayed it with artist fixative....
I love the weathered look to the finished piece....My Guardian Angel :D XXX
