Let’；s have a closer look at this Tattered Angels beauty!
‘；I love wings， don’；t you？ I love them in any shape or form. When I saw the fantastic paper from Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins “；Grace”；accent pillow case baby canvas housewarming gift， I thought of a Swan. But how to do the head？ Well， I go to fleamarkets all the time and I was lucky to find a salt and pepper yar with a silver swan on it.I removed the actual Swan head and together with the Tattered Angels Grace Wings –； my Black Swan was born. Black Swans are so cool and at the same time –； beautiful. They stand out， they are different and bold. So I thought of the title “；Break Free –； Embrace your individuality”； and then went to work on my Mixed Media Canvas.’； –； says Lena about her project.
‘；On this canvas I have， as always， used a lot of metal embellishments， either found in fleamarkets， in jewellery stores or in different craft stores. The egg that the Swan is breaking out of was also a fleamarket find –； I went out shopping during Easter time and of course found lots of different types of eggs.In my video， I give you some information on how I went about to complete this project.’； –； continues her story Lena.
