This piece is the first made for my series of "Angels". I had some handmade paper tucked away in the drawers and thought about time I put it to some use. Hence this artwork. I love the deckled edge created by handmade paper. It is backed by card and painted with pva and crackle paste to give the illusion of an old piece scarred by the effects of time. Also inspired by Byzantine Icons.
Handmade deckle edged paper - acrylic/mixed media, polyfilla, pva glue, tissue paper, collaged newsprint,
