The Forest Queen

This past September, I helped put on a Wearable Arts Show at my work during Alberta Culture Days. I also created a wearable art piece to showcase in it. This is that piece. It is called The Forest Queen.

My beautiful friend Tia did a wonderful job of modeling it for me both for a photo shoot out in the woods and on the runway. Sean of Prairie Ranger Photography did an amazing job on the pictures. Thanks again to both of them!!!

The piece its self is made of bark and moss on a paper mache base, with fabric, tulle, handmade paper clay mushrooms and various rocks, twigs and pinecones. The crown is wire,  floral tape and  glitter.

We glued on leafy eyebrows and used bright berries to add a pop of color.
