Mixed Media Monday Blue and Purple



This is to be the cover of a little 6 x 6 book for a friend's daughter for Christmas. I love blues and purples for Christmas colours and this girl is of an age where she is no longer a little girl but not yet really grown up and I thought these colours with Christmas angels would work well for her. The background is faux leather technique and there is a blue angel transfer in the bottom left hand corner which is hard to see in this scan, as well as the angels in the frame.

I think it's wonderful Moira! The image is lovely and the angel transfer is beautiful!
I have done as you asked and edited my post to reveal all that went into that canvas. It's more than I usually write... *grins*

PS - they say you should be careful what you wish for!!! ;-]
