Happy Hello Friends!
Today I'm sharing a mixed media hand painted project that I am submitting for the Lindy's Stamp Gang November Challenge (click here).....I was inspired to do an angel painting for this time of year (I collect angels). I started with a cloudy background as seen on some of my Instagram photo's. I was going to do clouds with rain in the background but I ended up making this a Winter/snow filled page. I asked my son to name this painting. He just happened to be working on a science project about the Arctic Tundra, hence the name "Angel of the Arctic"...
I see Lindy's has a new design team call right now.....I would LOVE to apply!!!! As much as I'd love to, I try to keep some balance in my life...My mom and dad are doing much better right now and I want it to stay that way. I have this thought that if I take on too much something bad will happen. It happened to me twice. (Flooding, my parents).....Hoping "2015" will be a good year!!!! I'm also feeling generous because Christmas is coming! Stay tuned for more details on my "painting" giveaway! Just a little something to put a smile on someone's face for the Holiday's!
I sketched some feather looking details for wings and then defined them at various spots with SILVER MOON TURQUOISE embossing powder.
Here is a collage showing the first steps I took before loading on the Lindy's sprays, beading and lace.
I hand painted CARIBBEAN BLUE to the pupils of her eyes and below her eyebrow.....
I used various Lindy's sprays in the lace: Baby Blue Eyes, Caribbean Blue, Wicked Witch Purple, T-Bird Turquoise and Steel Shimmer.
I used a touch of yellow/orange at the top left corner.....The sun is trying to peek through....
I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving!
