Valentine Minis from Retro Cafe Art Gallery

Are these cute or what???

Take an after noon and create some fun little Valentine Angels

These are made with TINY Primitive Angels cut from Masonite and are only 1.5 to 1.75 inches tall. The little faces are from the
Perfect size!

The front of the Angels have been covered in colorful Vintage papers, stamped with a Doily stamp and embellished with a single jewel cut from the Faux Rhinestone Trim.

I painted the Wings with an interference paint over Heavy White Gesso. (Hard to see shine here) 

The Tiny Hearts are painted and have white pen dots to decorate the edges. 

The backs of the Angels where painted and stamped with Black Archival Ink and Finnabair's Lace and Doily Clear Stamp.

These stamps are soooooo perfect for working on these little pieces!!!

So check out the links, order some little treasures from Kristin, and get to work!!!

Just popped in to check out if I really maybe might be able to make those lovely glam bathroom jars....decided [despite your lovely comment!] that....NUP! THEN I saw these little beauties! Damn it. I follow so many blogs it'd do your head in, but I might just have to add yours to the list. These are GORG. I can see these making lovely Chrissy decs too. I know, bit early, but........!!!
