I have nearly finished the Christmas shopping, just a few little stocking stuffers to get and then later in the week I will get the wrapping done.
I am sharing this post over at She's a Sassy Lady blog today too.
I finally got around to finishing my angel. So, she is no longer headless, but could be legless LOL!
If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you will know that I have now made two Christmas trees using this technique. You can see the trees, HERE and HERE.
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.
I am finishing off another tree, so will share that one later in the week, hope you will come back and say hello.
Thanks for stopping by today.
