Believe Collage

I love stone angels. They are so beautiful and such a joy to look at. I have been fascinated with them for some time. Last year I was in a Stone Angel Altered Book Round Robin and my book was so full of incredible art when it returned home to me, one of my all time fav round robins.

I made this Believe collage for a dear, sweet friend of mine and thought I would share it with you. Enjoy!

beautiful collage, Debby! I also love stone angels. I had a lot of photos and transparencies that got turned to mulch in the flood :-( I'm just now beginning to collect them again.

I love the way the (what I think is) the cut-out stained glass window frames the statue!

Beautiful! I love to look in really old cemetaries for the angel statues you can sometimes find. They just don't seem to make them a lot anymore.

Aaawww Debbie I think this is a sweet card to give to a friend. Not only is it just lovely to look at but inspiring with the word believe in it.

What do you mean exactly by a stone angel? An angel statuette or an image of it? cause I think it's precious too.
