Update... Creative Collaboration Club - A little game

Well here is part 2 of the Creative Collaboration Club (as I like to call it) between myself and Anastasia & Suzanne (see below).
To briefly recap I started with this:
...and then in response to my start (the next person in the 'game' needs to take inspiration from the last piece of work shown), Anastasia followed with this
This photo shows the collage Anastasia made - before cutting it in half to make two greeting cards.
Keep an eye out in her Etsy store as I'm sure she'll soon list them for sale!
I think this cute collage card Anastasia made previously would have also worked well!

I'm so excited to see what Suzanne comes up with now.
I'll keep you posted......

Anastasia and Suzanne

I recently met up with a couple of my Etsy friends, Suzanne from Paper Ivy and Anastasia from Percival Road, at the Blog Society launch workshop event.

We were chatting about how hard it is to juggle all the demands of a busy life - work, kids, the housey-stuff etc and still find the time, the energy and the motivation to be creative. 
One thing led to another and before long we had cooked up a plan to play a creative relay game, which basically has NO RULES!!
You just have to create something inspired by whatever piece of work the person who goes before you presents - like that word association game- you know the one.... 
(eg if  I say 'sleep' you would probably say 'bed'?!)

Anyway, I agreed to go first! 
At first I felt pressured to come up with something, then I had too many ideas, then I got sick with Vertigo for nearly a week...

I finally decided to present a photo of a little collection of things, in a colour story of orange, black and a kind of peacock-blue. 
I hand punched the butterfly and made the tags and the layered paper flower, the rest are found things from around the house including a handmade 'Lorax' pencil my son received as a party favour!
The Instagram filter I used in the second photo alters the colours quite a bit, but I figured that gives the person who follows me more scope. Of course they don't have to go with the colour palette, they may pick out just one small element from the juxtaposed items. 
(As you may have guessed I cannot remember who is going next!). We'll soon find out...

I can't wait to see what Suzanne and Anastasia do when it's each of their turns.
They both have blogs too, Paper Ivy  and Anastasia Drawing and Dreaming, where I am sure they will both post their creations.

Feel free to play along if you like - if you want to send me a photo of something you've made,  I'll be happy to share it.

Take care,
