Art House Co-op Mystery Project

Hi everyone!

I participated in the Mystery Project by Art House Co-op and Prismacolor. The idea was to create a project based on a prompt sent by Art House Co-op, using a Prismacolor Brush l Fine Art Marker. Then, you had to leave your project in a public place and send them a photograph of it.

My prompt was "Lines Have Been Drawn" and I took the literal approach:

I took a piece of cardboard, covered it in wallpaper from Gauche Alchemy and then scored it with my scissors. I added the prompt card, some mists, a little GA Washi Tape and of course my "lines". See? :P

I decided to leave it in an empty store front. Maybe I'll hear from someone that picked it up?

I really enjoy doing these projects from Art House Co-op. It makes you step out of your creative comfort zone and regardless of whether you think a project is "good enough", sometimes it's just about getting out there and simply participating.
