Paper bugs, insects and spiders

Two weeks ago I went to Sydney to help the wonderfully talented ladies of Greedy Hen. They had to make over 40 paper bugs and a ton of leaves which where to go into glass jars. I mostly helped with the leaves, but it was loads of fun, and they looked fantastic!

There were red-back spiders, bumble bees, grass hoppers, cockroaches, huntsman spiders! Each bug was created individually without a pattern or stencil which gave each one it's own personality. Once they were in the glass jar it really reminded me of my brothers catching insects when we were kids.

It was a really rewarding project, and I can't wait to work with the Greedy Hen ladies again soon!
