"Upcycled materials, paper mache, air dry clay, took a month to finish. Placed on my wall to remind myself God's grace and He walks with us every day through our trials. I used a number of techniques to achieve the heart and angel wings that consisted of resin in moulds, as well I used UTEE for center heart with a silohuette of 2 children. Used pearlized mediums for wings and shading with distress technique. Thank you"
