I always create a few angels each year and right now felt like the perfect time.
I had a plan to call her angel of protection, but as I created and thought through my feelings I knew that she needed to be the angel of hope.
As I was creating, on my table in my jar of scraps was this little yellow butterfly. And what better symbol of hope than the butterfly? I love it when things like that happen!
The journey that a butterfly takes to become the beautiful creature they are gives me hope.
I hope you enjoy the project with all its layers and texture. YOU are loved!
