Here's a piece I created a couple of years ago, which I call "Skeptical Angel". It was inspired by some of the projects in the book. I started with the cone skirted tarts, but wanted to make something like the little paper theater stages, too, so of course I wandered off in my own direction.

My angel's face is a Madonna (who some of you will recognize, though I don't remember which master painted her). I think the crowd is from the same painting. If you don't have years of accumulated calendars from which to cut such images, just check the book section at Goodwill for art books. It seems a shame to cut them up at first, until you realize you can get another about every week. And what to do with those old encyclopedia Britannicas? Angel wings are just one use.

Some of my stash ended up on the collaged pages of the Winter issue of 365 Being, which went to the printer today. Along with pretty pages to look at and read, we're including a tuck-in page with the pattern for the Love Dove ornament shown on the cover, along with photos of several versions, to get you inspired to make a flock for yourself.
