Pink Angel

hello lovely people! I finished this mixed media angel tonight. She is a bit different from the original sketch I planned out, but once I got to this stage, I was afraid of ruining her with the idea I had. You will have to wait and see the next one I do to know what I mean. I went crazy with the background, using a few different techniques, and lots of gold leaf.
She's quite pink and glittery, just like my screen name, lol!

For the next one I think I will pull out my book on color  and try something with maybe yellow and green, for spring.

thanks for reading!

Ooooo...soooo cute! I bet the gold leaf really adds great sparkle and texture. I can't wait to see the next one!

Maybe you and I could do a trade in the future? :)
I would love to add your art to my special collection!

Betty, she is lovely - I really like the texture on the background, it seems to really accentuate the colours of the angel. Beautiful
