Vintage Angels have captured my heart!

Hi Everyone!  Danie here with you all today! With approximately three weeks to Christmas, if you are looking for wonderful ideas for your card making, decorating and gift giving you need look no further than Altered Pages. Perhaps the new Altered Pages Collection of Rubber Stamps now available in store will make the perfect gift for someone. Otherwise you can choose from ready made kits set to inspire you and loads of your favorite supply items.  There is sure to be something that catches your eye and your heart.

My heart was recently captured by a beautiful Christmas Collage Sheet featuring an assorted selection of Vintage Angels. I have been using a lot of Vintage Images for Christmas lately and am enjoying working with them, which is something I definitely wouldn't have said a few years back.  I have learned to go where my mood and art takes me and not argue.

With some layering of torn scrap papers, paper doilies, gesso and added color by way of my Gelatos I created a background to match my angels and I finished with two Gold German Scrap Scroll Corners, a further hint of gold from some mica powders, some pearls and stamped stars and sentiment.

By the way I am totally procrastinating on all the Christmas To Do List stuff at present so if you see or find my Christmas Spirit,  can you send him straight home.

Have a great week!
