Dress #26 Butterflies and Grey Chiffon Ruffles


I used these leaves for dress #26.
If anyone knows this plant's name, do add it in the comments.
Here's a closer view of the plant and its small purple flowers,
living as a shrub in partial shade in south Florida.







Dress #26 was made with only one kind of leaf, from this neighborhood plant, with a lot of water in the paint. I layered butterflies and leaves, and many greys and blues with a touch of purple-pink. The bodice is so delicate, it seems to be the perfect dress for fairies.

Waist detail.




Skirt details.




So fragile.

I believe the plant you got there is a porter weed. Butterflies love them!
