2011 erosion bundle materials

became a scroll.


All of these papers, fabrics and embellishments came from the bundle set out in the elements earlier this year for the Erosion Bundle Project except for a few torn snippets of coffee-dyed fabric with a Parisian post motif and a couple of sticks found in the woods.

What a great result, Deborah! If anyone can make art out of such things, it's you. :)

Oooh that looks nice!
It reminds me of old letters. In England very old letters were found in the cellar (or attic) of some museum. Those were letters sent more than one and a half century ago by Dutch peolpe with Dutch sailing ships.
These ships were captured (official navy policy in that age) and someone stored all the post bags (loot)that were ón these ships. Lately a Dutch team studied and published a lot of these lettres ... that never arrived at their destination .......

I love it!....i think aging is the most interesting thing you can do to anything!...i stapled a signature, mixed media, canvas to my shed and watched it blacken, curl, and crackle in the sun...fabulous!....i remember as a kid making a map of treasure island and burning and staining it...i was so fascinated by the effects...i love alcohol inks...they work much the same....very cool post....

It is very cool Deborah. It looks like the entire thing was found from somewhere long ago....
I'll be publishing this on the Erosion Project blog on Sept. 11.
I am so glad you participated!

Love mermaid gallery's comment about aging being the most interesting thing that happens to something. I have to agree, but the comical image is of me curling and crackling in the sun as I age. LOL!

I've been missing your posts lately since I was so involved in my sculpture class. Now that I'm here, I see you have been creating fabulous erosion bundles. Sooo soft and aged looking and fabulous. I also love the one in the previous post. Will you reuse yours in your quilts?
