June's IT Girl is Margaret, and her theme is 'Cemetery Angels'... she loves cemetery angels. When she was in WI for an art retreat we visited a cemetery in Cedarburg so that Margaret could take pictures.
My idea... go snap some pictures of cemetery angels, load them onto a disc, and put the disc in a decorated CD holder.
The CD holder has a glossy finish.... perfect for alcohol inks!!
I went to a cemetery in Milwaukee that I used to visit often as a kid. We had lived across the street from it, and I and some friends would go 'play' and explore in the cemetery. It sounds goofy, but that's what we did sometimes!
I also took a few pictures in a cemetery in Mukwonago when I learned there were 4 life size angels there.
I used 3 of Ranger's alcohol ink 'brights' and silver to color the CD holder. I have one angel stamp that I love so I stamped it onto the front cover with black ink. She isn't a 'cemetery' angel, but I don't think that matters.
I applied the same alcohol ink colors to the inside of the CD folder.
Just a CD didn't seem enough, so I searched the internet for quotes relevant to angels. I printed them onto this blue sheet of paper and will include it in the CD holder.
Here's the completed CD holder. I printed a couple of the angel quotes I found online onto blue vellum and attached one of them to the front cover. I inserted a couple of eyelets into the spine, threaded a ribbon and decorative fiber through it and then tied a gold angel wing charm to the fiber.
On the left inside I attached a print of one of the angels taken in the Mukwonago cemetery, I stamped a flourish, and attached one of the angel quotes printed on blue vellum. The CD containing pics of the cemetery angels is inserted into the pocket.
On the inside right I stamped a flourish and inserted the sheet containing the angel quotes I found on the internet.
And here is the back..
Another cemetery angel pic that I printed, a flourish stamp, and an angel quote printed on blue vellum.
And it will be off to Margaret on Monday.
