I made this layered angel wall art while trying to teach myself to make the layered mandala projects. I think I have it with this one!! It makes a wonderful wall hanging. There is another project with concentric angels with the same starting angel here.
The project is 4 layers, filling in each layer a little more with each level. It creates a wonderful effect and is really a lot easier than it looks.
Paper Selection for Layered Angel Wall Art
This project can be made with any paper. The colors for the angel parts should be in the same color family. Patterns would look very weird for everything but the background mat colors.
Cutting the Wall Art
Start with the darkest layer and cut the designs upward in hue and layer. This is a must!
Be careful removing the angels from the mat because the lines can be thin, the top layer especially.
Assembling the Layered Angel Wall Art
As you cut the layers, build up from the bottom. Glue each layer to the one below it before you cut the next layer. This way you don’t lose the little pieces.
You can glue the layers together with foam tape or liquid glue. Foam tape adds more dimension to the project but you end up using a lot of it.
Once the layers are all together, use a 12 X 12 piece of cardstock that goes with your color scheme for a base. Frame the piece with a 12 X 12 frame. If you used foam tape you should put foam tape between the mat and the glass along the edges to make the frame stick up far enough to give the project room.
And your Layered Angel Wall Art is done. Before I frame it I want to put Ken’s name and birth and death dates on it and make it a memorial to him.
