Angel Art

The idea for this project came to me after looking at the Earth Angels website. They have the most interesting, extraordinary items there. The ladies who participate on that site are so unbelievably talented.

Anyway, they do this cute 3-D art work that I just love. I wanted to try something like it but aim it more towards my target audience, (ladies like my mom.)

I started my project with a 4x6 shadow box frame, a vintage angel cutout from one of my favorite sites, and many ideas coming from my overactive brain.

The background is the sheet music for "Angels We Have Heard on High," one of my favorite Christmas songs and a sprinkle of glitter. I used those scrapbook photo sticky things, (the actual name of these escapes me) to make the angel image stand out.


Overall I think she turned out great. I am really happy with the final result and she is one of the items that I will be selling at the craft fair in December.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Changing of the Seasons

I have been working on this prim all week and I think she turned out great. I just love her and she smells so sweet.

Her name is Opal and she arrived just in time for the season change. She is made with stained,(coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon) muslin fabric and harvest fabric. Her hair is in kooky pigtails and made with chenille yarn. Her face is completely hand stitched.
