Mini Scrapbook Challenge

I recently was lucky enough to stumble upon a forum on Etsy ( from a fellow Etsian who decided to put on an awesome little contest. Sewphisticate decided to find out what would happen if she sent approximately 20 artists some her beautiful little Mini Origami Scrapbooks ( to have their way with them. Yup! I was definitely lucky to get in on this! So, in keeping with the art I am currently ensconced in making, I decided to make one of my angel paper dolls. I recently worked on a bird theme for one of my customers so I decided to keep that theme going. Can't wait to see what the other participants have done. They're such a very talented group of people!

And here she is! The mini book was turned into "The Angel's Pretty Little Encyclopedia of Birds". Her wings say: She loved to research all the birds of the world in her small, little thing of a book. Her heart was handmade out of wax and painted red. The inside of the minibook shows vintage bird illustrations and a stamped image of a fancy little birdcage made with a stamp handcarved by me. She is backed by pretty art papers. Hope you like her as much as I liked making her!

To say I'm blown away my what you created with sewphisticate's mini album would be a huge understatement. Your creation could easily grace the cover of a coffee table book. So intriguing, great job!
