Wings on Wednesday: Man in the Moon Mini Art

“The evening found me lonely and I thought you might be lonely too. So I brought a message from The Man in the Moon for you”

I am a bit dreamy, a bit of a romantic – and with this project, I have re-imangined the Man in the Moon as an angel with this upcycled mini art.

I discovered a 3×3 framed mini plaque with broken glass in the clearance bin at Michael’s – picked it up for $1 to make this altered art transformation (which includes the 2 x 2 mini canvas from Canvas Home Basics that I love for so many projects!)

Using a medium grit sandpaper, I prepped the originally painted frame and then applied a primer. I then used various colors of Tattered Angels sprays and paints on both the frame and 2×2 mini canvas.  Sand and paint, repeat – until you get the texture and colors you want. My mini canvas background is patterned paper from the Wanderlust collection.

A set of resin wings – sanded and painted. A moon face die cut, patterned paper from the Wanderlust Collection.

Stay dreamy, angels!
