Live Wires New Zealand Ltd is launching this New Zealand Alphabet Gift Wrap, by Tanya Wolfkamp © 2013, at the Christchurch Winter Gift Fair, 16-18 June 2013.
The design uses a mix of collaged painted textures, fabrics and ephemera in a patchwork grid. There was lots of trial and error involved but I found a referring back to a fixed colour palette helped knit things together. It was loads of fun to do but a mammoth amount of work!
As well as a cute Kiwi gift wrap it would make a great New Zealand alphabet poster or use it to make some New Zealand decoupage.
Update! Now available as an ABC flash card set which can be used as a wall chart, frieze or cards.
