Angel Art Blog Hop: Christmas in July

It's time for another Angel Art Blog Hop sponsored by Paperwings! To get some "Christmas in July" inspiration, check out all the FABULOUS angel art on the blogs listed below the pics.

Much to the chagrin of one of the best people in my life, I LOVE Christmas! She finds it a chore and I find it WONDERFUL!! I love to decorate and celebrate and bake. She does it all too, just not as merrily and yet, she does it fabulously for her family! It's a great way to tease each other so I think I'll torment her today by telling her I'm starting on my Christmas cards. lol!
Here's where I'm starting...I just adore the new TAC Christmas set, Jingle Jolly, which is in the new catalog. And, it will be the stamp of the month in October! I used Copic Caboodles Sets A & B to color the snowmen and used Tombow markers and the Stardust Clear Gel Pen to color the Santa (as I don't have any red copic colors yet - lol!)

I had fun playing with a copic dot background that I learned from Heather who learned it from Barb F. I love how angels share their creativity and talents with each other! What do you think? And, check out the liquid appliqué on the hat. This is what it looks like when it's been hit with a heat gun. Isn't that awesome?

And, check out the liquid appliqué on these hats. I should have spread it out a little better but you get more of a "frosting" effect when you just let it dry on its own. I love that you can get two totally different looks with one product!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you'll continue hopping to the sites below to enjoy more Christmas in July creativity!
