Angel Muse

Hello everyone, thanks for visiting at this busy time of year and a very warm welcome to my new followers.
Today I am sharing a quick further journal page in my Prima mixed media album, which was a wonderful gift from Val and Don, our wonderful bosses at Snazzys


When life gets stressful I have found again and again the best remedy is to do some playing in a journal, I always feel so much better afterwards.  Earlier pages can be viewed here and here. The cover of the album is here
Anyway, here is the result, it was a canvas page. I played with various acrylic paints and the angel was created with one of the wonderful La Blanche stamps, stamped on tissue and then adhered to the background with matte medium. The gold swirly bits are also La Blanche stamps, love these, they always stamp so well! Here are few details still:

 The text was computer generated and I shaded around it with a charcoal pencil, blending it in (more or less) with a stubby, not so easy on the canvas.
 I added some little gold stars just for fun.
 Embossed with Wow gold embossing powder


All the best with your preparations for the big day!! Tomorrow I am having a give away, so make sure to come back!

  5. What a glorious piece of work... it looks like a piece of a mural from the Renaissance - extraordinary textures and (oh go on I'm going to say it, given the text!) chiaroscuro. Breathtakingly beautiful.

  14. This is absolutely stunning Astrid. I was looking at my journal the other day and thinking 2013 has to be the year I get started in it. I've never done any journaling so it won't come anywhere near up to your standard but I hope I can do some justice to the beautiful Prima journal from the Bosses as have you.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
