Some 'Exquisite' Fun


Do you remember playing something like this when you were younger -
take a piece of paper, draw a head, fold the paper over, pass it on,
the second person draws the next bit and so on and then you
open it all up and laugh at the funny person you've created?

Well, it's still going on in adulthood in Blogland, but now it's called
'The Exquisite Corpse Project' oooo-eeer!!!.

Over on the Collabor-ART blog I belong to, we were put
into groups of four people and had to decide our own theme.
The photo above shows mine - 'Denim Girl'.

This is how I started off her head


(Don't look at the 'nose', I can't do noses - lol)

I gave her some real Denim hair


She was then sealed up in an envelope and passed
on to the next person who did their bit, sealed it up
and passed theirs on - you get the idea.
 
When all the sealed envelopes came back, I had
the pleasure of opening them and putting
 Denim Girl together.
 
 
Her little bag is real denim and her curly toed shoes 
are leather.  I think I will fix the four sections
together properly and may do something with the background too.

I have so far done my bit on two of the other 'corpses'
and can't wait to see how they turn out too.

Such fun!!!!!

What a fab idea, Sherry. I love the fact no one knows what's been done before (it matches up pretty well too).

What a fun project! I never played that game when young but right now, a group of us (5) are writing a book. Each of us picks up where the other leaves off. It is amazingly fun and a real learning experience. I love the way your denim girl turned out..Thanks for the ida.

What a fun project! I remember those games from birthday parties but i had never thought of it being an international game. It could totally be done for quilts too. Oooh, my brain is buzzing now...
