Autumn Wings



Wings!  As you might have noticed, these particular wings are one of my favorites.  They were designed beginning with a portion of an antique die-cut bird wing, and repairing and adding further sections to that initial image to complete one wing, then duplicating and reversing that image. 

The color combinations are endless using photo editing software; other versions have been used in my blog sidebar and can also be viewed here.  

I hope you enjoy these new Autumn colors, designed especially for my friend Paula.  The browns and golds honor the hay harvest, and the fiery colors mimic favorite fall leaves.  Thanks for the inspiration, Paula!
