Tattered Wings


Artist Statement: My first Tattered Angel Wings sculpture sold within a day and a half of being listed ~ thank you!
http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=22225168

This listing is MADE TO ORDER.
It will be ready to mail within 2 weeks of your purchase.
You may choose another word to replace Blessings.
You may choose a black crepe paper ruffle if you don't want cream.
It will be very similar to the one pictured, but keep in mind that my paper whimsies are handmade so slight differences may be seen.
The size will be approximate.
I can use pages from the same book used for the 1st set as pictured: Two Years Before the Mast (1920).
I also have a French-English dictionary that may be used instead.

These tattered edge, black and cream, paper wings are made from pages of vintage books, just like my wreaths!

Blessings is printed on the flyleaf page from one of the books. It is surrounded by a hand pleated ruffle made of vintage crepe paper.

The wings would look lovely hanging in a soft, romantic decor... maybe a cottage, shabby chic, vintage, or farmhouse style home?

The sculpture measures 24" wide by 16" high (21" high including the ribbon). You may snip off the ribbon and hang the wings from wire loops that are on the back if desired.

The back is finished neatly and has the title and date of the book, as well as my name and year created (Lana Manis 2009).

I don’t destroy perfectly good books as a rule, and use books that are falling apart, have pages missing, or are damaged in one way or another.
