House of Angels - Challenges at Scrap for Help and Happy Daze for NEW work

Hi everyone this is a little house  from Happy Daze which I bought before Christmas. I actually bought 4 of these to decorate and give to various people as gifts but I had one for myself too.  The others are still in the box waiting to be done for birthday presents!!!

 I took inspiration for this from an article by Katy Fox in the Craft Stamper Mag but I cant remember which one.  I received a wonderful tag at Christmas from a bloggy friend Val whose work you can see here.  I wanted to preserve this beautiful tag so I incorporated it into my House of Angels.

I glued tiny mirror tiles, bought from a pound shop, behind the large angel, with various other paper off cuts lining the other shelves. The other angels are cut from scrap papers and vellums; the large angel has a dolly peg head and body sandwiched between 2 angel bodies with a small circular collar and halo attached with D/S tape.

 The Angel quotes were printed out and backed with the same handmade paper I used to make the padded heart.  I glued the heart to a ribbon reel which gave the right depth for the effect I wanted to achieve.

Hope you like it, I’m entering it for the Challenge at Happy Daze to create something NEW and the current challenge at Scrap for Help again for something NEW but with recycled materials which are the dolly peg angel, my little angels and my heart which was made from scraps of hand made paper and a ribbon reel.
Thank you for any comments you leave for me.
