This fun little craft will add some love to your holiday gifts










Step 1




Paint a large dot for the face

Mix white with a little yellow and a little pink for a pretty peachy color, or use brown for darker skin tones

Step 2




Starting just below the face make a stroke down and curved to the left at the bottom, using a fat round brush

Then do a stroke on the right side starting at the top again, making the stroke curve down and finish towards the right side

I used a little yellow mixed with white so the strokes would be more visible on this practice sheet of white paper

Step 3



Fill in the center with one or two more strokes, leaving the bottom uneven

creating the illusion of a  flowing gown



Step 4




Add wings with gold paint,  in the same manner, ending the stroke about 2/3 of the way down, keeping the wings shorter that the gown




Step 5

Repeat on the other side and add a halo with the same fat brush with a quick short stroke above the head

That creates the halo look, the center of the brush stroke pushes the paint to the top and bottom, creating the look of a halo




You can also use a gold sharpie or paint pen to add details




These gold pens are handy, but the color is not as pretty as gold paint

My gold paint is fairly transparent, so I added some additional layers




The darker dots on the bottom are with Sharpie and the lighter dots are with paint




for these small tags I just added the halo with a short thin stroke





Be Fearless!




and Believe!



Juicy Details

You can find blank gift tags/craft stores, Walmart, Target

I used acrylic enamel gloss craft paint, be sure to use paint specifically made for glass if you are going to wash what you paint
