Don't underestimate chicken wire







I love clever ideas and am more than happy to have a play and put my own spin on things that impress or intrigue me, I was surfing various altered art blogs and on my journey I came across an image of a crown made from chicken wire, it was quite clever, so I decided to google "chicken wire crowns" and came across a few different images by other clever artists, I even saw that there is a book that covers the subject. Anyway I had a small roll of wire from my foraging with Barb T. in Wagga a couple of weeks back, so really there was nothing holding me back from having a play, I fashioned the crown to fit my head but JD was more than happy to model for me once the piece was finished...that photo is blurry because he was jumping up and down as I took the shot....ahhhh super models! Such difficult creatures to work with :)
