    Welcome, redplantlady!

    Kristen, I'm smiling as I am thinking how we've all been there and done that. And then started over.

    I had a little buggin' adventure of my own today. I was cutting the wings off a plastic beetle (to alter, embellish and then add back on...and one flew off and onto the art table. And I can't find it! So, I am making wings out of junk for the beetle instead.

    Lol! I think the “junk” will make for beautiful wings! My bugs are finally starting to come together... half a box of wine (oh I mean a glass...) later!

    Kristen, those very cool! What sort of materials did you use? I'm not sure which route I'm going yet.

    Perhaps the disappearing wing was a Happy Accident...because I really like these patina'd junk wings. This little bugger is from me. He's a bee, but I think he turned out pretty SUPERFLY.
