I just didn't want to give up on this piece. I knew if I kept going I could make it into something good. The process started with an acrylic transfer that was less than successful - as most are. I think when you do an acrylic transfer it is best to plan for it to NOT be perfect as they so very rarely are. I persisted and I am glad that I did. I think this is a pretty cool journal page. I love the wings. I did a rubbing with silver metallic oil pastel to get the impression. The wings are made of wood. They are a scrapbook item I found on ebay.
