    Angels & Demons (Gnomes are back! HOUSES on SALE!)

    Filed under Art Projects, Back in Stock, Giveaways, Guest Designers, Sale

    Oh, what a lively, jam-packed newsletter today! Before I show you the Angels & Demons House (which inspired the new Houses sale), those little wooden gnomes are finally back in stock! They got stuck in customs… 🙁

    See all the back in stock items below (and farther down for some NEW items, including some VALENTINE things!

     
    Angels & Demons House by Guest Designer Angela Serna Zoco!

    Wow! I love this house-shaped shrine (wonky house-shaped shrine!) that Angie created. So much so that I was inspired to put all the houses on sale! (But back to this cool house shrine first!)

    (Ok… maybe second: do you remember the other projects Angie made recently? There were TWO Three Little Kittens Projects and TWO Angelic Art Projects! She is a prolific and talented designer and I would not be surprised to see her back later this year!)

    OK: NOW on to today’s project: Angie made the house with strips of chipboard, which allowed for the bendy roof. See the wide photo below for a couple in-process pics. I like the freedom of laying the house over the images you plan on using as background to decide where to glue the background. And since Angie cut out A ZILLION images from the collage sheets used, most of the background is just visible in tiny bits so no problem with using a collage sheet (uncut) as the back/background of the house.

    Read more (and see more photos in Angie’s blog post! Below are a few of the items from Angie’s supply list… and keep reading as there’s a Giveaway based on this Angels & Demons House!
