paper angel

Finished a few things I am working on.  I enlarged some pictures of angels and put them on card stock.  The large angel is glued on foam board.  I cut out two of them to give them more depth.  I will finish up by going around the edges with a paintbrush of a color close to the angel to tone down the foam board showing on the sides.    I also made tags for my gifts and glittered the three of them also.
I enlarged this pix

made two copies and glued to foam board

glittered her up here
I also glued cotton balls to base that I made with a slit in it to put the angel in to stand up, then sprayed glue and added glitter

one of the three little angels here I copied and glittered for gift tags.

Early shopping

My friend and I went shopping at Lewis Ginter Gardens gift shop.  Beautifully decorated.   Shoppers are greeted with a  glass of champagne or Sparkling apple cider.  Live music in the background. 
I am posting a few pictures of the evening.    You can still enlarge the photos by clicking on them.
