Sometimes art things have wings

The blogosphere is so awesome, and Things With Wings is one reason why I love it so. Laura, Jill, Connie and Emily – they are a family of Mod Podgers. Here’s the description of this fantastic crew in Jill’s words:

“We are a unique family of artists – a creative mom and her creative daughters with families of our own. We love to laugh, create, and have good times together. Our mixed media artwork is full of hope, humor and whimsy. We use a variety of materials in our work, including acrylics, vintage and new paper, found objects and embellishments, and of course, Mod Podge (satin finish!) We have a real knack for recycling old frames to showcase our work โ€“ sometimes the frame is as much a part of the art as whatโ€™s in it. We recognize that our talents are gifts from God, and are thankful every day that we get to share what we love to do with others.”

I don’t think I could have said it better. Visit this fantastic four here to see some of the projects above, or take a peek at Jill’s Paper Prayers Etsy shop right here.
