Well Most of you who know me, know I am in love with repurposing junk (Leftovers) or at least what most folks call junk! For me one mans junk is truly my treasure. So today I bring you some of my repurposing once again.
I am in love with angels, love the thought that I have angels watching over my family, my friends and myself as well. Because of my fondness and in honor of my mom (my personal guardian angel now in heaven) I decided to create an angel. But how was I going to create her and what kind of junk was I going to use? Well, the wheels got to spinning one evening as I was pouring the grand kids a soda. BAZINGA!! I knew what I was going to do and got busy. With a few sheets of paper, some images from www.AlteredPages.com, a little bit of stuffing and matte gel, OH and don't forget the coke can, I want you to meet,
"Paix" (which is French for Peace) was made from repurposed scraps and collage images from AlteredPages.com Sprayed with a little ink spray created from Gelato's, hand stamped and ladened with scrap pieces of Graphic 45 paper and some floral collage images which I also found over at Altered Pages. I used a wooden ice cream spoon and another AP collage sheet for her head and face along with a little bling for her halo. I then added some tattered vintage lace and some vintage applique from an old wedding dress I found while at one of my favorite flea markets.
Now I bet your wondering what I needed the coke cans for? Well look closely and you will see the tin coke cans have now become Angel Wings!!
I cut them out, altered them with a little matte gel, pieces of paper and then embossed them with gold embossing powder. I left the back side unfinished so you could see.
I had such fun creating her that plans are in the making for her and her future sisters "ESPOIR" (Hope), "JOIE" (Joy), and "AMOUR" ( Love) to be offered as online classes!! Classes are be planned to start sometime in February with "Amour" as our featured angel. So please be watching the blog for more info and how you can be apart of this fun time!!
Well I hope so much you have enjoyed today's post. I know I truly enjoyed creating her and feel blessed to be able to show her off here and over on www.AlteredPages-Artsociates.blogspot.com . Even more so, to be able to find just the right images and products to make my vision happen, Thank you AP for having just what I needed!! And Thanks to you my artsy angels for dropping by and I hope you will join me again next time.
