Winged Giraffe

I am super lucky to be part of an collaborative group of very creative folks!!  I admire all of their work and am truely inspired by what we have been creating!

This time we altered (some made from scratch) paper mache animals.  I got ahold of a giraffe to alter.

Before we get started here is a list of all of the other blogs that you simply have to check out...there is some unbelievable talent in this group and I wouldn't want you to miss a thing!!

Now, back to my Winged Giraffe...yes of course it ended up with wings!!  They are the perfect expression of whimsy and I love the whimsical!!

I started with vintage dictionary pages (attached with Prima Art Ingredients gel), Art Anthology Colorations spray and the Viva Las VegaStamps! Writing Circle Background stamp.

I painted all the circles with Art Anthology Sorbet.

The wings are cut using the Tim Holtz Layered Angel Wings die.

Of course I had to add a bit of sparkel with Art Anthology Colorations Gilded Gold spray.

I loved creating this giraffe and am SO inspired by this collaborative group.  I can't wait to get started on our next project!!
