15 friends project:

December 16, 2011

So I am super fortunate to have been asked to be a part of the 15 friends project by Twig Creative. The project is simple: a blank canvas gets sent all around the country and each friend adds their contribution. There are 2 groups and it has been a lot of fun following them and seeing how it's turned out - what everyone has added each time.

This is what arrived after 3 friends. I was #4 in the group.

I came across these cool hot air balloon clips and the project encouraged all types of media so I thought this may be fun to add. I don't consider myself an artist in the fine arts field, I even draw stick figures poorly. ;) But I do like mixed media and using different types of collage materials (can you tell from my blog design?) I wasn't sure if the clips were a good enough contribution but I thought they were just too cool not to use.

I liked this idea of air and being free so to go along with the theme, I added a little plane.

I also found a vintage flash card that I clipped on the hot air ballon. Galaxy. I thought it was a cool word ;) It can be removed and doesn't necessarily need to stay in the piece.

All packaged up and ready to be sent to the next person!

I loved the concept and execution of this project - Thank you to Steve & Michelle for inviting me to participate!

5 hello's:

  1. This is such a fab idea, I would love to see the end result after all these creative types have added their touch! I love your hot air balloon clips, so cute!x

  2. This is so fun, I've seen a couple of the 15 friend's work so far and its all great! The hot air balloon clips were definitely the perfect touch.


  3. what a creative idea, love how the canvas is coming along & quite curious to see the end result.. thanks for the inspiration (",)

  4. This is such a cool idea. I'm a high school art teacher, and think that I might use the concept in the classroom, and have each class pass a piece around to create a piece of artwork together.

  5. wow!! this is such a cute and neat idea!!
