Christmas Angels

This is my first Christmas post and I must apologise for it being so close to Christmas. This year Christmas has just crept up on me and I have only just dressed the tree and decorated the house. This is late for me considering that on the 1st December the Christmas albums come out and every morning I ring my children and let them listen to whatever track I'm playing and wish them a Merry Christmas. As you can imagine hearing Frosty the Snowman or White Christmas on the train or in the office can be embarrassing. Ahhh.... but having said that if I'm late ringing them they call me. They have even told that some of their friends have asked if I can ring them too!

Anyway, I wanted to show you a couple of angels that I have made. The first angel is mostly made up of products from Tim Holtz. The second angel's face is from Wendy Vecchi's 'Dress form and more' art part. Unfortunately I haven't got the phrenology stamp that would go with this so I painted her face. I drew and cut out an arch shape from thick card for the body and painted and distressed this with acrylics and distress inks.
