Feathers Please

avoxtar_CollaboratorsWanted


 This time I'll be really short because it's late and because all I really want to do is make you all aware of this cool project I stumbled upon earlier this evening. It's about making feathers out of cardboard boxes and sending them to Canada to Yanik. She is going to make a big bird installation with all the feathers in it's tail. There's another highlight in this; she will try to have the bird hosted by as many heart-centered businesses in order to get the money to donate onwards. "Each 300$ donation feeds and educates one child in Haiti through the Eddy Pascal School and the Haiti-Laurentides Committee."

You will find all the info and instructions over HERE.

Let's create some pretties! :)

Here's my batch that is going to be gessoed asap to dry over night.

Wonderful idea, Nini, you are very good at spotting these. Lovely to know your art is helping a good cause.

Well, it was obviously meant to be, me finding it as I clicked on stuff I never do :)
Oh Suzi, do make some feathers with your mom... it would be such a great thing to do.

I can't figure out if I left a comment here or not. But I think it's a really cool project and I am going to try to do some feathers! (You do find cool things!)

This is the only comment I got :) It was such a coincidence finding this that I can't help but think about how "it was meant to be". I really hope you'll make some, they will look amazing with your colorful copics. And please publish them!

Your feathers look great. I find feathers intriguing anyway :-). It being for a good cause too makes the project even more inspiring I think.

Thank you Esther, you should see them now when they are almost finished :D
I must say I really like making them because I can make each one a bit different and use them to experiment with different color media and all. Too bad I have to finish them up today and take them to the post office tomorrow because on Tuesday I'm leaving for a week off and I think it would be a bit late if I'd be finishing them off when I return. I sooo hope tomorrow the weather will be bright so I'll be able to take some decent photos of them.
