Wings of Angels

© Michele Emerson-Robert 2016


Both of my sisters collect Angels and Penguins. I know, I know - two so totally different things (just like they are). I try to add to both of their collection every year. These two Angel pieces can be left out all year, and will be perfect to place in a small decorative easel. Who knows, perhaps I will also find new Penguins for them too.


Supplies

·       Any of the Arnold Grummer® paper making kits
·       Blender, cello sponges and soft towels
·       A sunny window
·       Scraps of off white paper (think junk mail, etc.)
·       Dried grasses or herbs
·       Scraps of Kraft colored chip board to die cut (I used the back of cereal boxes)
·       Scraps of tissue paper to stamp on
·       Dies: Creative Expressions™/Sue Wilson™  #CED3001 2014 Christmas Angel, # CED3016 2015 Christmas Angel
·       Tonic Studios™ Tangerine die cutting and embossing machine
·       Scor-Pal™ Scor-Tape™
·       Beacon ZipDryTM adhesive, double sided foam tape

·       ColorBox® dark brown Chalk™ ink pad
·       Tonic Studios™ #810N Cosmic Brown Nuvo Embellishment Mousse™
