Lettin' Mother nature do her thing!

I recently discovered the Erosion Bundle project through the talented artist Carolyn Saxby and her inspiring blog Mixed Media Textile Art. It is a fascinating project but as simple as anything, a whole bunch of people participated from around the globe ...  and here's what they did...

"The idea is simple: create an artistic bundle made from materials of their own choosing and hang, bury, submerge, or just place the bundle in the elements. This collaboration is to be with the ultimate partner…Mother Nature herself"

The bundle could contain all sorts of materials, fabric, paper, berries, and all sorts of ephemera. On January 1st all the bundles were either submerged in the earth, left hanging in trees or just put somewhere to rest in the outdoors. The bundles were opened on April 15th - the results were amazing! Just pop over to for links to all the contributing artists involved...

Many thanks again to Carolyn Saxby for the use of image - and here's links to her bundle posts;

I can't wait to see her finished art projects (using bundle ingredients) in August! 

Happy Earth day people! Go hug a tree or somethin' ;)
