Art Angels

This week we are challenging you to make angels...they may come in handy for Christmas decorations! Feel free to use your imagination and make them out of whatever you like.....
Rosie used scrapbook papers for her Christmas decoration, and painted the face and wings herself - clever girl.
She used an Artchix dreambox for this one, plus Artchix collage sheet and wings. Very classy Rosie - love those blue wings!
I used Artchix images for all my pieces - this one is in a memory frame, with added metal halo and wings.
This one ended up quite bizarre - but I like her! The body is made of paperclay.

I stuck the famous Archix mascot onto a chunky block (covered in music and text) with a panel of Angelina fibre and a metal heart.

Better late than never - this is my altered tin. It was an M&S mint tin that I sanded and covered in alcohol ink. This is one of my favourite images.
It is now home for my sequin collection!
The 2 little angels were from a chocolate wrapper and I've mounted them onto Angelina.
Ok....now its your turn!

PS If you want to use an angel quote, I'll be putting lots on my blog later today.

LOVE IT! I am always looking for a challenge/suggestion/muse! Oddly enough, a littl angel appeared to me today in my basement and said, "use me"...she happens to be made of paper...and apparently is tired of sitting in her packaging!!

Juliann said...
