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.
