Yet some more guerilla-type art...


I've got some more "guerilla~type" art going out, but in a journal format & it's going to be sort~of~round~robin, where the book will travel around to different people around the country & then wind up back in my hands (hopefully!). The picture isn't that great, but I wanted to get this posted & I don't have the patience today to futz around with getting the best/most flattering shot. The papers are all from the Temple of Craft that good friend Karen has started. She had brought some really gorgeous Asian papers with her that night & I would've nabbed them if I could...but I'm not that kind of person. I did, however get a few strips of it, which I instantly pasted on the front of this book. I so covet those darn papers ~ they were so perfect ~ the colors & patterns! Sigh.....


Inside the book is the following: "If you only had one last chance to say something to the world, what would it be? Please take a moment to answer the above question & to decorate your page in whatever way you wish ~ it's totally up to you. One page per person & one person per page please....." I got this general idea from the "Guerilla Art Kit" that I've mentioned in previous posts & then ran with it...put my own twist on it.


It'll be on it's way to northern Connecticut (bet she can't guess who it is ~ surprise!) via DHL tomorrow & then on to San Francisco (again, no big surprise after he reads this) after that. It'll go to many points, near & far, across the USA. I can't wait to see how it turns out!!!! Now I've got to put on my big girl panties, take the chance, & set it free ~ I'm so worried & nervous about never seeing it again ~ just have to keep my fingers crossed!

that looks beautiful! how do you know who it's going to go to? did you make a list of addresses for people to send it on to, like 'hey you, after you add to it, send to this next person on the list?' i would be honored to add to your journal. i am unsure of where to send the postcard on to....
hey, make your cards using bleach as ink yet? i'm doing mine today.

Oh, I only wish those papers were mine. That kind soul was our hostess Beth. We have to come up with another paper project so she can pull them out again!
