“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
We may not all be Michelangelos, yet we all have a bit of creative spirit inside us that we need to allow to play! Papercrafting, watercoloring, art journaling, mixed-media, planning…these are all art forms that we can engage in and, thus, set our own internal “angel” free.
Our designers created their own angels today, using whatever Prima products, styles, colors, and form they chose! The sky was the limit! Look for stamping, paper cutting, moulding, watercolor, and more as Rachel, Stacey, and Karine share their Prima angels!
“Merry Christmas, Everyone! When I saw the theme for today’s post was “Angels”, I knew straight away that Scarlett from the Julie Nutting stamps would be perfect!! Teamed with the beautiful paper collection, Lavender Frost, I made an angel tag! I love the warm cream and gold tones – perfect for a golden beauty.” ~ Rachel
"What a beautiful theme to be inspired by today. I created a mixed-media piece featuring angel wings. I painted them on my star background, then added my layers of angel wing moulds and flowers. Of course everything is painted with lots of gorgeous Finnabair Acrylic Paints. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones." ~ Stacey

“I love Christmas and the holiday season. And I think that angels are my favorite holiday decor items. I have a few around the house. So when I saw the angels inspiration on our calendar, I couldn’t resist and I decided to create one. I chose to do it almost monochromatic white, to play with textures, and to match how pure angels are. I used two Color Bloom sprays and one Art Alchemy paint to add colors, but I diluted them with lots of water, to get that watercolor effect. I love the end result!” ~ Karine

It’s comforting to think there could angels around us…our own little heavenly guardians watching out for us. And we can be an earthly angel to others. What could be more rewarding than helping those who are in need? I encourage you to reach out to one person you know is hurting emotionally, financially, or with their health, and bring them a handcrafted angel. Let them know you care through your own personal touch! You could be their own ANGEL this holiday season.
