Kim Schoenberger - WXYZ

On the final leg, I'm almost finished my alphabet



W - butterfly wings.


X - recycled tea bags.


Y - cut from an image of a star with rays.


Z - gum leaf dyed canvas and frayed.


Close up details, finishing up with a couple of photographs on how I propose to display each letter...







I contemplated for a while on how I was going to finish my letters this time. I wanted to think outside the square and funnily enough I ended up putting them inside a square! I got little wooden boxes made and have painted them all white, here the production line is happening.



After sewing brown paper behind the letters I've glued them into place I am now awaiting 26 glass squares so I can enclose them for safe keeping. Below is a detailed group shot...



I have posted more detailed images on my blog if you would like to see more...
