Art N Tartan entry

In a moment of insanity I have entered a local wearable art exhibition/ competition called Art n Tartan. As you can guess the theme is tartan. I decided to make a kilt and jacket outfit using only upcycled business shirts and a suit. The show is in Waipu in July. I have almost finished my entry just a few finishing touches to add. I have called the tartan the McBusiness tartan. all pieced from old shirts.

goldwork and butterflies

This is my finished gold work, Wild Wrinkles. I am really please with how it looks.

And these are the last Monarch butterflies of the season, Not sure these last caterpillars will survive its getting a bit cold I think. The whole cycle of these butterflies is just beautiful, from stripes on the caterpillars to gold dots on the crysilis.
