golden cherubs

Hello! Today I am sharing another canvas I have made following the Mixed Media Studio online course. This is for the third week and is led by Frank Garcia.

I have started my canvas with a layer of vellum and then added some texture with texture paste through a stencil and sprinkled some clear rock candy glitter onto it whilst it was still wet. I then embossed some stars on and added some Mustard Seed Distress Glitter.

I stamped the image: La Blanche ~ Angels with Trumpets with Metallic Gold StazOn ink onto a piece of gessoed canvas.

The little golden baubles are just decorations from old Christmas crackers. I always keep them, just in case I can use them!

The flowers were die cut from a Spellbinders ~ Layered Poinsettia die.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
