This is my piece for the Earth Day Collab of “Acts of Green” as I'm a member oft the United Nations of Sugar Art. ( http://unsugarart.org/acts-of-green-earth-day/ )
It is our goal to stay apprised of current political and human focused issues and provide educational resources for our followers. Once a year we will virtually come together to volunteer our time, materials, and talent to create individual edible showpieces that express our thoughts and feelings pertaining to a given cause. Please have a look at the donation raffle for National Geographic Society. There are amazing prices!!! http://unsugarart.org/ways-you-can-help/
The earth is our heart! Even the letters are the same. It is the center of our being and of all living beings, which we should be aware of, so that we take care of our earth, our heart.
I selected delicate flowers who do not get much attention, but are beautiful and precious though. The Forget-me-not also has a symbolic name.
I was inspired by a t-shirt design on Threadless “My Foolish Heart”, showing a pink heart with yellow flowers and butterflies. I saw this long before I was invited to the collab, but I remembered it immediately as I thought about my piece.
Hope you like it! The petals, leaves and butterfly wings are made from wafer paper.
