CS Designs Angeline Christmas Joy Art Tag

Angeline is such a fun design I just couldn't resist making another Art Tag with her. Because it is getting so close to Christmas, I chose the traditional colors of red and green.

The main focal point on the tag is Angeline from my Christmas Digital Stamp Collection, and the Joy sentiment is from the same collection. Angeline has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine. The long beads are hand rolled paper made from text weight paper I got at the dollar store. The little silk ribbon flower is one I made a couple of years ago and have been saving for just the right project and once I got all the materials together for this tag I knew it would make the perfect addition.

This Art Tag is also being featured this week on the Red and Green challenge at Art With No Boundaries.

CS Designs Angeline Hidden Beauty

Angeline is one of my new Christmas Digital Designs. I made her with Christmas in mind but once I saw her in print something totally different emerged in my mind. I decided she needed to be just a little bit Goth and therefore the black and purple. I especially like the little red halos around her eyes, kind of how I look after I have spent too long drawing on my computer. The painted layer peeking behind the red one was done with a page from an old art supply catalog and various colors of acrylic washes. The beads are all hand rolled paper and Angeline has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless turpentine. Once I colored Angeline and saw how different she looked, The words for the sentiment just popped into my head and seem to fit perfectly. Perhaps we should always look deeper than what is on the surface, what we fine might just surprise us.

While not your usual Angel, she is still beautiful if you look deep enough. Her Angelic personality seems to shine through no matter what color she is and hope you like her too.

This Art Tag was created for the current challenge Angels or Wings at Art With No Boundaries Challenge Blog which is sponsored by CS Designs
