Angel Secrets by Dorthe Hansen


Hello all, I`m back with my Monday post for That`s Crafty! and this time with an
angel from Donna`s stamp set called FERN.

I love That`s Crafty! MDF surfaces, as they hold their form, even sprayed with a lot of water and today I used one of the panels, to tell my story!

First I gave it a coat of gesso, and after dry, added scrap pieces, from an old French/Danish dictionary.

After that, the whole surface was sprayed with Infusions , Navy Blue, Sleight blue and Olive.

I then used the wonderful That`s Crafty! stencil Church Window, to add texture , with texture paste through the stencil. When dry, I sprayed with Navy blue again and used a little silver paint from the new shimmer Paints. Not so easy to photograph!

I wanted to place the angel on right side, and stamped her first directly onto the surface.
Next step was to add texture paste through the Dinky stencil Wings, to fit around the angel body and also another Dinky stencil, Flowers, was used on the bottom panel.

When all dried, I painted the flowers with diluted Infusion Olive and the wings, with diluted Navy blue, adding Archival Ink: Hydrangea and StazOn: Cloudy Sky ,using cotton swaps, followed by the Shimmer paint, Silver.

I stamped the angel again on a paper scrap, fussy cut her and adhered between the wings, over the first stamped image.

She was painted with black and brown Sharpies, and blue and red Posca pens.

Lynne`s beautiful Affirmations were stamped onto paper with Archival ink Leaf green, cut into 4 pieces, and “framed” with StazOn Cloudy Sky, before adhered to panel.

The tiny heart, a gift from my dear friend Lynne, was colored with Olive and Cloudy Sky, I stenciled the hearts from Dinky hearts, onto paper, fussy cut and adhered to the heart. The Heart stencil was also used between the angel wings.

Lace was sprayed with Sleigh Blue Infusions and leaves and heart fussy cut from it.

The heart was added to the angel with an Abalone shell button and the leaves among the flowers.

Lastly the flowers got their black center, with a black Sharpie and all edges on the panel was run over with the Cloudy Sky ink pad.
