A Sunday Angel

Hi Everybody!

Today started off with a wonderful sunrise, but the sun was driven away by black clouds, wind and rain after a couple of hours. And Sunday is going to be worse. Ah well, bad weather is always good for a pyjama day spent crafting and  reading.

For Art Journal Journey, things with wings,  and Mix it Monthly, angels and saints, I have made another journal page. The background was another mop up/brush wipe page on which I used a couple of background stamps to give some texture. The glitter angel with her cloud has been painted separately, fussy cut and glued onto the background. The houses along the bottom have been drawn with a stencil.







A nice sunrise:


A hungry pigeon:


Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  1. Very similar weather here Valerie and not so good when it's at the weekend for me!
    Lovely artwork there and a beautiful bright page too plus slightly spooky as I'm on an angel piece at the moment too - great minds think alike!
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Fliss xx

  7. Zauberhaft Dein ein wenig 70 er Jahre anmutendes Engelchen ( die Haare sind eine Pracht!) auf seiner gemütlichen Wolke...wie abgesprochen haben wir das gemacht mit den Engeln heute - stimmt!
    Bei meinem ist Washi Tape von Dir dabei, was Du mir geschickt hattest!
    Ich hoffe Du hast einen schönen Sonntag Valerie!

  15. Hi Valerie, Beautiful artwork, the background is gorgeous for the whimsical guardian angel. Yes bad weather days are good for staying inside and feeling cozy, as long as they don't continue for days and days... it's cold and sunny here. Take good care, hugs, Shirleyxx

  19. Good morning sweet pea - I know I haven't been commenting but I have been watching if that accounts for anything. I love watching you and colors - you are the master! My favorite days are pajama days, some hot coffee and a good book!
    Valerie, my heart goes out to all the people in Duesseldorf after the tragic plane crash. So many people from different parts of the world were affected.
    I hope your shoulder is better. It seems like pain in my right hip will be with me for life now. I am lucky, things could be a heck of a lo worse! Our final move will be April 6 - we are still packing!!
    Thinking of you -
