|'Purdey' - doodimal in ink and gouache|
I recently visited my friend Tracey Fletcher King's blog and she mentioned she was taking part in the Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014. She'd learnt about it from Marji. The whole idea is as follows:-
* Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014 *
I promise to give a small work of my art to the first five people who comment on this post and say "YES, I want in". A 'like' alone is not enough of a commitment, nor is a comment about thinking Pay It Forward is a great idea.
You must in turn post this as your status update (on Facebook) or on your blog and make or give something to the first five who comment on your status.
The rules are simple:
– It has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends.
– It can be anything art-based: a drawing/illustration or a conceptual work of art, a photograph, a knitted item, cross-stitch, papier maché – or anything in between.
I'm paying this forward thanks to Tracey Fletcher King which makes her number 1 on my list. Yes, you can be on each other's pay it forward lists.
First five, GO! (By the way, Marji's already said she'd like to be on my list so really it's the first 3 to comment here!)
PS. It doesn't matter if you aren't an artist, try something out, google/ YouTube how to make stuff, step out of those boundaries.
Step 1 -Copy&Paste this (see below) as your latest entry on your favourite social website (in my case, it's this blog)
Step 2 -For the first five people who comment on your blog entry saying they want to participate, you will do an art trade with them that must be completed by December 31st 2014. I would count as the first person so technically you only need another four. If you find your friends are keen you can do as many as you want.
Step 3 -All forms of art count including creative writing , photography, digital anything goes!
If you have any more questions, just email me and let me know.
By the way the illustration on this post is a doodimal of my wee Purdey that I intend to get S to frame in one of his gorgeous upcycled pallet frames and hang in our bedroom. It isn't what I'll be sending as part of Pay it Forward -I'm still thinking about that!
I'll be linking up to PAINT PARTY FRIDAY this week as I haven't been partying for the longest time and I thought it was time I popped by to visit some friends, old and new.
