Gwen has done it again with a new challenge over at The Artist Tribe!
For this month of December,Gwen asked us to work with German and English Scrap and German Dresden Trim that is currently on sale in her shop.
This challenge was soooo much fun for me,because as you may know...I love to fussy cut and embellish and these gorgeous trims and scraps,are just perfect to create with!
There are no real step outs here with these photo,but of course,I did give you some tips on how I put these together!
I began with using this beautiful angel from Gwen's Vintage Vibe-Angels&Cherubs Scrap Sheet
I cut off the wings and then went to Gwen's Wondrous Wings Collage Download and picked out some new wings for this gal.
I also gave her a Christmas flower in place of her lilies,and a bit of German spun glass for her cloud.
Next task was to re-construct one of the German Dresden Ornate Ornaments into this angel's new headdress.
She looks a bit Art Deco to me~I like it!
A bit of Stickles on her stars
and the freshly fallen snow on her wings and headdress is Emerald Creeks Embossing Powder called Winter's Mistake.
(links for all products at the end of post)
and here she is with her new look
Next up is a little frame*,painted up with lovely shades of pink,dressed up with some Fran~tage' and snow.
added to that a sweet vignette of one of the birds from
I changed his season by adding snow to the branches and a bit to his body and onto the added winter greenery.
next I added some of the lovely
and here is my beautifully framed winter scene!
Gwen now has Dresden Holly in the shop as well~don't forget,15% off till December 31st!
I wanted you to see some of the Scrap and Dresden pieces I began with,before my alterations.
Where does your imagination take you when you see these?
Still working with the "Birds Of A Feather English Scrap"
I used another bird and a different substrate
The background I painted a brighter pink to which I added some glitter and then some crackle glaze,which I heated with the heat gun till it bubbled instead of crackling.
On the top layer,I used this Gorgeous shades of pink paper from
and then edged it with Gwen's Essential's-Emerald Creek Embossing Powder in Enhanced Gold Pearl
I added this beautiful English Scrap Bird to the center. After that,I glued some Dresden Myrtle and Dresden Daisy Borders,which I cut into individual flowers.
I will be using this beautiful ribbon for hanging my ornaments~Gwen wraps all of her orders with this,isn't it just lovely!
finally one more piece to share...
of course I needed an angel paper doll to hang on this year's tree!
Isn't this Cherub darling?
Starting with the sweet blue winged cherub head from Gwen's Vintage Vibe-Angels&Cherubs Double Sheet English Scrap
this sweet girl's headdress and waist piece are again from one of Gwen's German Dresden Ornate Ornaments redesigned.
And her neck piece is actually a corner from the German Dresden Frame & Corners set
Add a few touches of Stickles and a few sticky gems...
along with her most beautiful Peacock Feather Sequined Patch skirt~exquisite!
My dolly is ready to take her place on the Christmas tree,and then into my art studio later! I think she is much too pretty to pack away until next year!
BTW,taking suggestions for names in your comments,please ")
