The rules were few and simple-we drew names and sent the person whose name we got some of our many bits and pieces we had stashed around the house. The person who received the box would then create something using all or some of the bits.
My box came from Lolo (and I wish I had remembered to take a picture of it. I know Lo, and I've followed her art, so I know her art. I wanted to create something that was reminiscent of her, and without copying her style-which would be futile-she's incomparable!
I wanted to pay homage to her bag lady series-so I tried to think of something that was like a paper bag, but wasn't. Now that is harder than it sounds-I came up with "Cardboard Box" tab.
She also sent some ATC-s so I wanted to do a 'series' because I've been playing in digital mediums with the same image several ways. It's harder in 3-D.
Then I said pooh, I wanna do a paper bag. This is my test bag where I played with different pens and stuff to see how they would react to the paper bag.The dog tag is all Lolo-I just put it on the bag and added some stuff she sent. The only thing that I added to this one was the vinyl for the snake. This was all accomplished this morning. I've been playing with ideas, of course they all went out the door when I sat down, but what fun I had! I hope we can do this again, because it was really as stretch for me to move out of my digital world and I enjoyed it very much.
