You can be a part of the project. It's FREE! The next one starts in October. You just have to sign up at Creative Sprint HERE.
I participated twice and it was a lot of fun, and even though I make art daily, I was inspired by their prompts and ended up with a lot of ideas for new work. Try it, really, you'll like it.

|A booklet from Fleur|
|A second page|
She sent it as an Add and Pass along.
So I added to two pages, One opening the book in one direction and one page going the other direction, if that makes sense.
Rather than physical science, I used natural sciences for my entries.
Botany, biology, and entymology. Gosh, I hope that's the right word for the study of insects. I can't believe that I didn't look it up.
I tried to make the entry look like something old, by adding little letters by each bit, like in an old science book.
I'm please with the results. I hope Fleur wll be, too. I'm sending the book on today to another participant.
We went upstairs to our studios.
After a bit, I went into my honey's studio to look at something he was working on and there was Bizoo.
He'd made his way upstairs to be near us and
had fallen asleep.

I had a lot of fun putting together three things.
As I mentioned before, I was doing a bit of studio cleaning up, and found a couple of Sark sheets that I couldn't throw away. I sent one to someone with out altering and then decided to make one into an Add and Pass sheet. I hope it gets back to me eventually so I can see what people added to it. Do any of you remember Sark. She was sooo popular for awhile.
My friend Erni Bär, in Hamburg, sends me collages - 100 years of DADA - and I've been altering them and returning them to him. He seems to enjoy what I do with them. He posts them on Google + .
We were very emotional about it. My husband and I both did our foundation art year together at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Our instructors were people who had studied under Moholy-Nagy at the school he created, The Institute of Design.
Going through the exhibit, we could see how much he influenced our own work. I said to my husband - We're his grandchildren!! Our design lineage. It was quite emotional actually seeing where we came from.
Have you ever had this kind of experience?

Here are a few of them. More to come.
These were done in my Basic Design class in early 2000s. There were done without use of a computer. All cut and paste. They were done to demonstrate the principles of basic design.
Which is your favorite!

|Mail Art by Miss Z|
|Arms and Art|
|Arms and Lips|
The Arms are a part of my eMail Art series. I'm having fun with it and when I don't have Global postage handy, I can send one of these.
Pink is an old card of mine from 2004. I'd printed up some of my collages into cards and I just found this one this morning. I altered with a pink postage stamp and am sending it to the Pink Mail Art call by Tofu. Find more information HERE.
