#creative UNblock no.4

April! That means it’s time for #creativeUNblock project no.4! {If you missed the first three projects, or have no idea what I’m talking about, you can catch up right here.} The next unblocking project from Creative Block is by American mixed media artist Cassandra Smith, and instead of being paper based like the first three projects, this one is all about altering objects:

“Make a little sculpture using a found object. Find something around your house, at a thrift store, a wacky junk store, anywhere! An object that is about as big as your hand or smaller is probably the best size to start with, so it’s not overwhelming. And make sure it’s something you don’t mind ruining. This is just suppose to be fun after all! And then transform the heck out of it! Paint on it, glue things to it, cut it in half and glue it back to itself, or glue it to something else. Use the objects color and shape to inspire you.”

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Ok, I’m going to the thrift shop immediately {any excuse}. I’m excited/nervous for this one, as I’ve never really worked in “sculpture” before. Should be interesting! If you want to share your weird little sculpture(s), just upload them to instagram or twitter and hashtag it #creativeUNblock. Relax, like Cassandra said, do NOT worry about “ruining” anything. Forget “perfection” and just have fun … I’m thinking glitter and macaroni, who’s with me?!
