My Vintage Angel- mixed media painting by Sylwia

Hello Arty Souls!

This is my second project for May. I decided to incorporate  this divine vintage kit into my mixed media painting. I love creating whimsical girls, fairies and angels so there it is My Vintage Angel:)

Art Supplies used in the project:

Acrylic Paint
Texture Paste

I started off by tearing pieces of paper by Tim Holtz and gluing them to the background. Than I outlined my angel and painedt the background using old credit card. It is more scratching than painting but trust me I didn't use any brush in this painting. I 'painted' it only with plastic card. That is why the texture looks uneven and grungy.
The same technique I used to paint the face and hair...

I decided not to cover whole background with paint. I love this butterfly/moth:) 
I also sprayed the pieces of chipboard background lattice with  glimmer mist and glued it to the background. It is hard to see it on the photo, but this mist gives beautiful gold shimmer effect:) Love It!

And I used Memory Frame to make a necklace for my angel. I cut the inside of the frame and a heart out of piece of cardboard, which goes with a vintage theme:)

As for wings I decided to use texture paste and stencils:) And also I decided not to cover the dress with paint completely, as I wanted beautiful papers to show through.

I hope you enjoyed this project:)
