ChipArt Angel

I did some free lance work for GCD Studios recently. I had the opportunity to create some videos demonstrating their ChipArt Tool. There are 5 total if you are looking for tips or want to learn more about the ChipArt Tool....which is great, btw!

ChipArt Tool Videos

My favorite piece I created was for the video Beyond Chipboard - I used a wooden board and embossed wings to decorate my angel painting. I thought I would share the process and some photos with you today. This piece was inspired by Tam's class Art, Heart and Healing......she worked on an angel in the last week of the class with dimensional wings - hers were created with texture pastes and paint....really gorgeous.

I used lots of DecoArt products here - Americana Acrylics to paint the angel. Her face feels a little sad to me, but I didn't really intend it that way. ;)

I embossed the wings with the ChipArt Tool first and then painted with gold metallic paint and then mixed glazing medium with dark brown acrylic paint to antique the wings. (all by DecoArt)

Check out the fabulous shiny finish.....this is Triple Thick finish by reminds me of an epoxy finish.

Emma loved this project and asked if we could put 'her' angel in her room.....high praise, indeed.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! :)
