Angel inspiration

Hi all

well had a day to myself the other day and I made a canvas. I didn't know how it was going to work and I had no clue as to what it was going to end up like??!! I beleive in angels more than the next person so I asked them for help. I felt so in the zone and just painted. I started with the background and love it. I used acrylic paints and a make up brush. I wanted to add strokes of colour, like angelic strokes of light. So here is the back ground:

Then I found a picture online and loved it. I did try and draw an angel but that didn't go to well!! So i printed the picture out and then I added feathers. I also gave the edges a ripped effect. I didn't colour distress the edges as I wanted it pure white.I then added a verse. I have done a little clarigraphy before so got my pen out and free handed the verse. This is from the movie Suckerpunch. I have an angel tatoo and loved the verse so much I got this added too. I believe it sums up angels very well. So here goes the next step:

So for the next step I added Tim Holtz masks and spelt out Angel Art (this is my new business name) and then used dusty concorde and picket fence stains. I highlighted with a gold pen.
For the final part I added some flowers and added some Tim Holtz sayings and tags. I have to say I love this canvas and found my whole day angelic and enlightening. Hope you all like as much as I enjoyed creating it.
