Pink Saturday!

Yay! I love Pink Saturday!

Our monthly meeting of *ArT*PaRtY*!! was this past week,
and the theme was "Winged Things".
Our swap was to make "something with wings on a stick".
Here is my little angel on a stick:

And closer:

Actually this is not the actual angel I traded,
I forgot to take a picture of it before the meeting.
It was so fun to make:
the body is a bathroom tissue tube,
flattened and collaged and gessoed.
A cute little Paper Whimsy face,
some vintage lace, crepe paper, yoyo and paper rose.
Seam binding, rick rack and lace streamers
hanging from a dowel inserted into the tube.
The wings are made from a Tim Holtz die cut.

My swap partner was Marti, who made this (not so little) cutie:

She started out making it as a joke,
with silly things from the Dollar Store,
then it turned out so cute she decided to use it for her swap!

Look at Rosa's fabulous entry:


This is Ginger, our hostess of the month, wings and all:

She made us a lovely pasta and vegetable dinner,
and true to our theme, we also munched on buffalo chicken wings,
palmiers and angel food cake.
A lovely time was had by all,
and I'm so excited to share our next month's project with you!
But not yet!

Happy Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful weekend!!

I love your winged thing! It must have been really great to go to a gathering like that. I wonder if anyone has them around here? Nice french music, too!

Your winged creations are divine! I'm sure the recipient of the swap loved her doll.

Hi Lorraine, thank you for your sweet comment yesterday. I love the angel wings and yours is my fave. It was fun to see the different ideas everyone came up with about wings. The hostess looks so pretty in her 'wings.' A fun post and you are very clever to use a toilet paper roll. Who would know? Not me.
Happy Pink Sat.
Hugs, Jeanne
