Peace On Earth ... for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a December Project using the beautiful chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments. It is with a heavy heart that I am dedicating this layout to the victims and families of the San Bernardino shootings. My prayers go out to you all.
The photograph was taken at San Clemente beach one morning when I decided to get up early and experience the morning sunrise...what a treat.  
I added Art Extravagance Texture Paste White Sand to the background and while still wet I added sea shells, fishnet, starfish and German glass glitter. 
I traced the top of the wings with hot glue for texture and allowed to dry then brushed with white gesso and added bronze patina embossing to the tops. The globe was also embossed with assorted Lindys powders. 

My title was embossed with black embossing powder, then the entire layout was splashed with black India Ink for interest. I hope you were inspired. Please drop by our blog  HERE for some beautiful inspiration. 
Wishing you peace in your life and a joyous Christmas season. Please enjoy the Harlem Boys Choir with this beautiful rendition of "Let There Be Piece On Earth"

The following Creative Embellishments were used in this project:
