Angels and More Angels

I'm kind of into the glitter and angels right now from
This is a Primitive Art Doll Style 3.  I changed out the wings for some longer Angel Wings 2
It's all a matter of choice.

I think the little 1" Wreath highlighted with White Art Sugar goes well with the hand-painted doll using Fresco Paints, stamping with Coffee Archival Ink, and white Sharpie Poster pen marks. 
This Silver Sequined Trim is VERY cool that's along her hemline area. It really sparkles like crazy, but the cuts are recessed. Amazing.

Just click on the links and it should take you right to the product you're looking for.

The Gold Luminous Glitter is from Finnabair that's on the Wings and Headpiece. Add your favorite wire with some twists in it to holes in the wings and she's ready to hang on the tree.

Here's one last little Angel made with Primitive Angel Art Doll Kit #4, and a Peace Dove Cut Out, a Banner Cut Out, a Round Stained Glass Window Cut Out, and more of the above supplies.

Any questions, just leave me a comment. I think you've seen the tutorials and are probably bored with them, so I'm shortening blog posts for you.

Steampunk Princess Warrior for Finnabair Creative Team

It's my turn again on the 

I have always been drawn to anything Steampunk, so this was a work of love for me.

I start with a plain paper mache mannequin that I painted with Heavy Black Gesso. 

Next I added several colors of Silks acrylic paints to the body, and gold acrylic paint with Treasure Gold pastes to the stand.

The large Steampunk Wings were covered with Platinum Crackle Texture Paste using a sponge square.

I glued strips of trim in a criss-cross design onto the mannequin, then sprayed with different colors of ArtDeco Acrylic Shimmers.

I added large black Ric-Rac and other trims and lace to the bodice. Then more paint and Treasure Gold pastes.

This is a close-up shot of the lace that's been painted with White Gesso as the last layer, and dazzled with Glass Beads and Glass Glitter using Matte Gel.

Now I start to lay out the pieces of metal for the next layer. I painted the Leaves with Silver Mixative Alcohol Ink to brighten it up.

This Large Flower Mechanical has the center removed so I could use it as the collar.

The Label Plate is sanded and polished with a Vintaj Reliefing Block to make the high points shine. Then I painted the accents in with Vintaj Patina Paints.

The Prima Paper Flowers have a dusting of Antique Silver Art Sugar, and the Medium Flower Mechanicals are glazed with Copper Inka Gold. 

I added the Glass Beads with Gloss Gel to the openings in the Leaves and the trim. Copper Inka Gold is rubbed over these as well.

The Vintage Center is glued over 2 brass arrows with more Copper Inka Gold. 

I used a Tassel on the collar and added some large Turquoise Pearls. The various gears and Mechanicals are glued to the wings with 3D Matte Gel. Each wingtip has a black rhinestone. 

The Wings are colored with Distress Inks and a final topcoat of Copper Inka Gold Paste. 

I love how the Purples, Turquoises, Copper and Golds all make this
Steampunk Princess Warrior
come to life.
