Brown Bagging It

Last month, I signed up to participate in the Project Brown Bag organized by Erin of Art Social Online and Louise of Laid Off Mom.  They thought of this super creative idea of passing along a canvas from one person to the next and ending back to the host of the month who will be posting about the creative progress.  For the month of January Louise hosted the project and I was the first one to get the canvas.  My paranoia set in since I was the first guinea pig.  Am I going to do this right?  Do I have enough time?  Oh yea, each person had a set amount of days before sending it to the next person so there was no procrastinating allowed!  

This is how I got my package.  Too pretty to take apart, right?

The canvas.  What the heck to do?!

I went cray cray with my needle and thread.

My end result for a short amount of time.

Off to the next participant.

The canvas went to two other artists who did their thing to the canvas.  There were no limits really, as long as it fit in the brown bag when it's time to mail.  The end result is over at Laid Off Mom  and there's even a silly picture of me in there!!  If you'd like to learn more about how you can participate, check out the link to Project Brown Bag.  For the month of February, Erin will be hosting it...maybe there's still time to sign up!  Shout out goes to Erin and Louise for a great idea to connect strangers through art!
