For Christmas my brother has requested a 3D butterfly collage. He loves the shadows produced in the different light conditions. The only stipulation was that it be all white, and in a circle format. I had a 50×50 cm box frame to fill, that is a lot of butterflies to cut and shape. So last week while poorly I did the only thing I could manage, and punched out many butterflies, nearly 200! I then sat in front of the TV ( you have to love judge Rinder) and got to folding each butterflies wings. Finally on Tuesday I got positioning and gluing into the circular geometric pattern. The only problem was I had too many cats thinking they might be of help, and to be honest, I was not keen on their input…..cat hair in a crisp white box frame, or worse still little muddy feet, was not in my brothers brief!
I took some photos today, and with the right lighting I can see some great shadows will be produced.
I have called it ‘Neutral suspense ‘
Happy Christmas to my brother Will xxx
