Erosion Bundle Project 2011

In addition to Every Inchie Monday, Kris Henderson is again hosting the Erosion Bundle Project. The idea is to create an artistic bundle from one's choice of materials and then "hang, bury, submerge, or just place" it outside in the elements as a collaboration with Mother Nature.


The contents of my bundle include cloth and paper doilies,
bits and pieces of a variety of papers,
and an assortment of fabrics . . . cotton, silk, vintage and new, and a couple of pieces that were leftover from last year's project . . . they get to have a second time around.
Other additions include . . .


some dried poinsettia leaves,








rose petals and a marigold head,

some rusty things,
pinecones, a pod and cinnamon stick,

some frozen berries
defrosted,

and fresh cranberries.
The fabrics were rolled around the rusty things and bundled together with a sprinkling of leaves and berries with the other items tucked among them.
Everything was wrapped in a vintage napkin and then encased in a mesh bag that formerly contained limes. It's hanging from a hook on the side of our woodshed in the backyard.

Wow what an excellent assortment of erosion bundle goodies! I went back to view your bundle from last year.
I think you are going to get more color this time around!

that is a good idea with the berries as it will give lots of colour on the pretty vintage lace etc. I am taking part this year for the first time

I love the idea of putting together such odds and ends for your bundles and then finding the patience to wait and see what happens inside.
