Angels Abound at Christmas time

Hi there, it's Jean to share my Angel with you.   My Christmas tree and decorations are bright colors but I always have a soft spot for a sweet angel. 
This sweet girl (not sure why but I think of angels as girls, maybe because they are often adorned in pastel colors) glistens and softly shines.    

I added glitter to the chalk paint and coated the angel.
The Collage angel I chose was fancy cut and applied with watery Aleenes glue.
Next was the wings of lace and the flowers, I did this before anything because I wanted to coat it all with glitters.  I used four glitter styles. Fine iridescent white and pale pink and chunky pink over top.  Layer upon layer of glitters, it is after all Angelic!!  The final glitter material was flakes added to the bottom edge in a greenish tone to pick up the green in the flowers. 
I hope you can see all the sparkle!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
