Snow Angel

Hi everyone.  It's Karon here from Karon's Krafty Korner.

Stopping by to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.  Thanks Sheila, for letting me come visit.

Today,s creation is another book art sample.  The last time I posted, was my Christmas tree, using the same technique.  However, this time - you turn the book upside down for several of the pages - so that you get wings :-)  A great tutorial for this, can be found here at Five Go Blogging.

I decided to make a bottom for the angel using cork pot stands - so I first coated the cork in Gesso, just one coat would be enough, but I gave it two :-)


Then I gave it a coat of silver acrylic paint.  I am so pleased with how this turned out!


You can see the angel there in the background - looking a little headless LOL!

Anyways, after spraying her with some Perfect Pearls - Perfect Pearl is the colour I used, I also added a little more sparkle with some very fine glitter glue.

Her head is just a Christmas bauble, I kept the silver hanger attached to it, as I thought it made the perfect collar.


I couldn't resist adding some silver ribbon to her head and base.


Of course, as she is a Snow Angel I had to add some lovely silver snowflakes.


I finished off the base of the angel with some wired star garland, after all she is up in the stars and clouds there :-)


I was tempted to add a face to the bauble, but thought that may spoil it.  Less is more, as they say.


I apologise for the overload of photo's I was trying to share the sparkle :-)  Hope you are able to see it.


Maybe you could give it a go, with some old books that you may have.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
