Angelic Skinny Swap



I am signed up for several swaps...as always, nothing new right?....well actually this is the first "skinny book" swap I have ever done, so I thought "gee I may as well sign up for four"....or something like that lol
Anyway the theme is "Angelic" but it is in groups of 12 artists per book, so if the same artist signs up for all 6 of the groups then they should make a different page for each group...and so I did, I have done texture (of course you have...yeah I can hear you all say), differently for the four groups I signed up for.
I decided against using an image but created my own stencil and used it with impasto, gel medium (yes Danielle GM!!! I loooove it so), and stamping and embossing, some looked good with the single winge while the others looked best with double wings, I thought it sort of looked as though it was wings wrapped around somebody.
My fave is the rust with gold and silver EP...marbled nicely to make platinum :)

These are just great - I love the fact that you give close ups - I know to click and enlarge - but its even better to enlarge and close up of part of it.

And yes - the wings do look like they are furled around an angel.

Awesome.

Great textures in these, love the self made stencil as well. It's a shame you don't run some online classes for us gals who live too far away. I'd love to do something like this...must play more!

Cheers!

I am back in here again.. I love these .. I LOVE the wing stencil and I NEED to know how to do one too.. lol.. I think I will go and be inspired by this and use the butterfly stamps you sent and make a stencil (well TRY) ...

I cut it out on my Pazzles Inspiration, I used some acetate and a design that was floating around the internet, I manipulated size and made it a wing :)
