“The Angels flap their gentle wings
And fly down from above
To keep you safe ’till morning light
And surround you with their love.”
This unique pen and wash print started life as a sketch in my studio. As each little Angel took shape I loved watching their personality shine through. After perfecting the outlines, I carefully transferred them to watercolour paper. Next came one of my favourite bits – adding the colour!
Once the first layer was complete, the shading was added to give depth. Your can learn more about this technique and how to do it in my book Hand Painted Rustic Cards by Search Press. Finally, the details were put on with pen – I really enjoyed adding these finishing touches, including stitching and energy whirls!
Together, with my good friend, author and poet, Lyn Halvorsen, we created Sleep Tight, a tender sentiment which makes it the perfect print to hang over a little ones cot or bed to keep them safe and watched over by their angels. This print would make a wonderful, original New Baby or Christening present and a handwritten name of your choice can be added at no extra cost.
