More Glitter & Angel Wings

Yes, my desk is still covered with glitter - isn't everyone's at this time of the year? Glitter is on the floor, my iPod, my face. . . . .basically it is everywhere!
I've been working on these angels for Danielle's Angel Paper Doll Swap which is due at the end of the month. I started with an oval base and covered it with vintage wallpaper that I have been saving for something special like this. During the process of working on this project, Ruth Rae's new book, Layered, Tattered & Stitched came out. {I adore Ruth's calm disposition and beautiful heirloom quality projects and felt so fortunate to watch her create in person at the final ArtFiberfest earlier this year.} In her book Ruth made some adorable mailing folders out of waxed paper sewn on top of vintage sheet music and I decided this technique would be perfect for making my angel wings. The filmy wax paper kind of gives the wings an ethereal feeling.
Glittery slippers, a sparkly golden tulle skirt, a single rhinestone in a silver setting at her waist, a hand-stitched paper halo, and a tiny vintage white glittered bell complete the look. This time I remembered to make one for myself to keep - something that I am always neglecting to do when I sign up for swaps. Now it's time to pack them all up for their journey to Danielle's house. I can't wait to see what she sends back from the other artists!

Remember to take some time to enjoy yourself during the next few days while preparing for the Thanksgiving celebration and feast.
Signature w/rose

Jeanne, your work is soooo beautiful. Wonderful job. When I get started with glitter, I notice it on my husbands face, (I don't tell him) and all over the dog. Ha.
