wHat wOuLd yOu do wiTh thiS?

One of the things that most fascinates me about art is how you can have a group of about thirty people give them the same task and they all come up with something different. It's amazing.
This is a collage and paint background i created. I was about to work over it but then i wondered what other people would do with it. So if you have the time, download this image and work your magic with it. Just remember to show us what you do!

Oh my... I downloaded it for sure but my "to do list" grows more and more... I can't keep up with it anymore but I'll try to use your image somewhere 'cause I love challenges!!!

ah this sounds cool! :)

ArtSparker said...

I will try to do this in the next few days and then link to yours with a suggestion that others try it. Had been thinking about doing something like this, but I may have overcomplicated it, so have put nothing up. But now pushed to do it in the future.

Curio said...

As long as there's no deadline, I think I'll see what I can come up with as well...Not that I needed another project! Still, I can't resist.

John said...

I came here by way of Lisa in NZ - an old friend.

I like your collage - may I play?

Karin Bartimole said...

what a cool idea - I love the different textures, little heads, nature imagery.... i'll have to think about this one :)

Chris said...

Okay, first of all, this is neato.

Second of all, what a great idea! I'll give it a shot...

grrl + dog said...

well I'd be knitting a cover for it... maybe the whole lot...

Bea said...

First of all if it was mine, ALL MINE, he he he, I would take it to a copy shop and make a color copy or two of it.
I'll use them in bits and pieces of more new work.
I might grunge it up, having taken Julie Prichard's Layer Love class and learned how to do that. Lots of dark paint around the edged and lots of drips, drips and more drips.
Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. Love to see it when you leave a comment. :)Beawhohassomanyideasandsolittletime.

rosedale's 4head said...

as cheesy as it may sound, if i had the time, i'd use this image as post cards - the colors, the abstract prospect is just gorgeous - intriguing...
