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:
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!!
