The 15 Friends Project.


I've been waiting and waiting to tell you about this little collaboration project and I'm thrilled today is the day. A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Steve and Michelle from Twig Creative. They gave me details about this awesome idea they had for a traveling art project. They were calling it The 15 Friends Project. The idea was to ship a canvas between different artists all over the country, each person adding a bit to the piece. At the end the canvas would be auctioned off. Of course I said yes right away. I was intrigued and excited and really couldn't wait to see how it all panned out. 


I received the canvas last week and was the second person to add my artwork. I'd been hoarding saving this image from a vintage book and knew it would add a sweet touch. Some balloons made from book pages, embroidery floss and a little mod podge later and my contribution was complete. The canvas has  been packed back up and is probably in the home of the next artist on the list. I can't wait to see what the other artists add and how the finished canvas looks!

You can read updates about the traveling canvas by following along at the Twig Creative blog. This post gives you all the details about how the project started.

Also, visit the amazing talent they have lined up. I'm sure you'll be inspired. I'm still pinching myself that I was included with such a group.
