I made these two angel ornaments for a swap at Retro Cafe Art Gallery.  The only rule was we had to use the blank angel base.  When I was ordering supplies I pictured exactly what I wanted to do and they both actually turned out how I pictured them in my head.  That doesn't happen often!

The first is a sparkly snow angel ornament.  I spray painted the angel parts silver then embellished.  I used mica flakes on her skirt to get a snowy effect and glitter glue for her wings and torso.


The second one I wanted more of a rustic "Americana" look.  I used gold spray paint for the base and some fake holly berries around the skirt.  I also added the little rusty tree, star, and brown snowflake which matched well.
