Mail Art and my Creative Sprint!


#123 And Day 18



Day 6

Day 9 & Day 21
 All this month of October, I've been participating in the Creative Sprint, which is a project of Another Limited Rebellion (which happens to be the business of our son and daughter.)

It's been a wonderful challenge. I did it last April. I didn't plan to do it this time around but then I just jumped in.
Day 17

Above, Day 18, we were to make something to trade for something we wanted. Well, I always want MAIL!! So I traded for some Mail Art from another Sprinter!

Day 6, we were to make something with our eyes closed. I chose the pencils with eyes, closed and made a portrait. I even put the brush of water on with out seeing where I was doing it. I really like the results!

Day 9, we were to take something apart and make something new from it. I opened up a cracker box, made a weaving through it and then put it together inside out.

On Day 21, we were to make something and send it through the mail. Easy Peasy as kids used to say a long time ago, easy peasy for me. I made a water color landscape, put it in the Day 9 box, added a bunched up plastic bag for padding, and sealed it up all over with packing tape. It made it through the mail, arriving at it's destination today!
Yay, USPS. Three day journey only.

On Day 17, we were to teach someone how to do something. I taught people who had basic knitting skills how to make a pair of simple fingerless gloves.

I think a couple people might try it. I hope they do and show me the results.
