Glitter Angel

I'm so excited to share with you a new class offering! Glitter Angel….
So back in 2011, I submitted a tree angel to Stampington and it was published in their "Holidays and Celebrations" publiication in 2012. After spending some time and enjoying my tree angel...I decided to sell her. Many folks asked about how I created this Angel and asked for a class so I thought I would create a sparkly version of this sweet angel in time for Christmas. You have lifetime access so that you can create Angel after Angel....or any little girl for that matter. There are so many directions to take this in. Dress her up in fibers...sparkly glitter...but most of all have fun!
