You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

A Blue Angel

Hello, everyone.  I'm having fun learning (by trial and error) how to color digis.  This Sherri Baldy angel is so cute.  I made the background and embellishments more simple because I thought she should be the focus.  This seems to be my style - somewhere in-between 'clean and simple' and 'chunky'.  Here she is:

Her wings were edged with a light blue and then Diamond stickles were added.  They look great.  On the edge of her skirt I used a yellow glitter pen.  The patterned papers are from from current favorite pack from Recollections, Paisley and Damask.  The decorative corner for the inside is from cricut's picturesque.  The stamp was purchased at Michaels (I think).

I'm entering this in the following challenges.  Click on the name of the challenge to see all the entries.
