My Soul Angel...

Howdy everyone....
Can you believe it....
Summer is ALMOST OVER
I CAN'T hardly stand it!

Anyways....
I've been meaning to share this little LOVER~LY
I create a while back!
....I just love her!
She stands watch over my studio...


The inspiration for my Soul Angel was
my DT box I had just received from
UmWowStudio
OH MY....how the creative juices began to flow!!

I dug out a Chunky ATC that had been banging
around on my crafting table for MONTHS.
Then, I remembered a bag of wood pieces parts, I had,
and dumped it on the floor to begin to compile my Soul Angel
a candlestick holder
a door knob
and a wooden ball.
My Soul Angel was beginning to take shape...


 I smeared on a bit of 
to match the previously created Chunky ATC.
Then, I painted all the wood pieces with
Perfect Paints ~ Aged Copper to match.


I glued all the pieces together with Ranger's Multi Medium.
While I was waiting for it to dry,
I cut (2) wings using Sizzix ~ Angel Wings die
and a bit of cardboard.
I manhandled the cardboard, tearing at it to
expose the corrugation.
Next I randomly painted on
Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic
True Blue
Sangria
when dry, a feathered on a bit of Ranger's Multi Medium
and added a bit of Stampendous Pearlized Fragments.


Then I dug into my new acquired stash of
UmWowStudio chippies!!
I used (2) leaves from Home Grown MASH
SOUL and flourishes from Fortune Teller MASH

I painted all my chippies with
Perfect Paints ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic
I love how you can paint it on flat
or dab on to created texture.


I colored a bit of string
to match my Soul Angel's wings and
added a key and vintage button to round out her bodice.


What would my Soul Angel be without
a halo and veil!!?!?
I used a bit of vintage lace and such to create them
and finished it off with another
flourish from the Fortune Teller MASH.


I hope you have enjoyed my creative journey....
It was one of those projects I just had to get out
of my head and let it have it's way!

THANK YOU for stopping by........

She's lovely Lynne, a perfect muse for your studio! And I am in complete denial that it's nearly the end of August, although it's so cold and wet here today it feels like October! Deb xo
