An angel in the darkness

I painted on black paper. Added some washi tape at top and bottom.
I knew I wanted to have an angel on my page and wasn't sure what quote to use.
Then I found some old song lyrics I wrote back in the 1990s
and used a few lines as seem to fit quite nicely.
The background has Panpastels on and the pattern made with an eraser.
Finished with a little iridescent glitter glue.
It was bad enough with the winter light trying to get a photo,
but trying to show the glittered parts almost impossible.

I love all the coloured and twinkling lights at this time of year
 so that's my excuse why we have 5 Christmas trees up.
2 trees are about 6 feet tall and the other 3 mini ones about 12 inches.
Flash photography seems to have lost all the colours
 but you can just about see the 5 of them.

Slightly better but still not captured the magic.

Dave has been busy making chocolate chip brownies and
I'm thankful he freezes some
 otherwise I'd be eating them all at once if I could.

Thanks for stopping by
and especially at this time of the year,
I do appreciate it.
Wishing you a good week.

  6. Wow, well firstly your angel is just divine Gill, beautifully drawn. Oh my so many Christmas trees, sadly we've just had to take ours down.....the new arrival mangled it!! Those brownies look soooo yummy, pity your blog isn't scratch and sniff ;)

  7. What a darling angel, she can come by my way anytime. She has beautiful words too.
    Five Christmas trees! - I love it.
    The brownies look yummy, yes, freeze some of them quick (although it doesn't take long to thaw them out (but not under the grill for too long (ask me how I know!))).

  8. That angel is so sparkly and beautiful Gill. Love all the lighted trees too. I bet its bright and cheery on these dark days. :) Have a wonderful Christmas! Hugs-Erika

  9. I love your angel and the beautiful words too! Your trees look fabulous - I have quite a lot of light around too but only one tree! Oh those brownies! I can almost smell them!! Hugs, Chrisx
