This month, I was honored to work in Kim Smith's book in our round robin journal project for Paper Traders. Her theme was Angels and she specifically asked that we use renaissance-style angels in our work. These pages turned out much pinker than I had envisioned but, I must say, they do look better in person than in the scan.
I used scrapbook paper with an old handwritten music ledger on it and then dabbed pink ink over the top using heart-shaped punchinella (sequin scrap). The doilies and trims were originally gold but I rubbed pink acrylic paint on them using my finger. The images were cut out of some lovely Christmas-themed scrapbook paper by Graphic45. I trimmed the words with my gold leafing pen and added glitter to the angel wings using Distress Stickles. As a final touch, I added the metal word plaque "Adore" and the key & keyhole charms at the top (another special request from Kim). The poem on this says:
Away, away! To my love away.
Tel her I send her my love and devotion,
Wide as the world is,
and deep as the Ocean.
