It’;s Wings on Wednesday time and this week we have something completely else than usual for you!

Our Crew member, Lena Stain, made cyberpunk-inspired canvas with black Mixed Media Origins wings as the centre piece. A swan breaking out of an egg, waking up to life –; Break Free is a dark but how beautiful representation of how we all are individuals and should not allow anyone to compartmentalise us.

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.
