WOYWW 45: The Altered Torso Project

he Altered Torso Project - Fashionista & Kindness

Happy What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Last week, I shared that I was participating in the Art Every Day challenge at Creative Every Day. I’m thrilled to report that this challenge has been just what I’ve needed to get my creative juices flowing! I’ve had more ideas flowing through my mind than I can keep up with – and I’ve created more projects than I’ve had the time to post! So, today, I thought I’d bring you up-to-date on the Altered Torso Project!

Philosophy Behind The Project

My original idea behind this project is to create a series of 26 tags – one for each letter of the alphabet – that represents some aspect of myself. When the torsos are complete, I’ll have, in essence, a mini Book Of Me. I’m not sure how I’ll store the completed torsos yet – I have several ideas but have not settled on one. I’m also not sure as I go through this process if I’ll stick with the ABC concept or end up creating whatever strikes my fancy. But, heading into the project, that is the place I am starting from.

For more details about the individual tags, please visit the links below:

    Lovely work as usual!

  13. Paula Gale says:

    well done on this inspired idea to find your mojo again… if it takes you in a different direction – isn't that what creativity is all about? Go with the flow… I have many ideas in my head and my problem is starting them… too many incidents of procrastination i'm afraid with me.

    I popped over to see the boys – divine – and fix fulfilled!!!

    Really great idea – and so personal – the torso book will be fab – and quite agree – don't have to do all the letters! Have fun and keep those juices flowing!

  23. Julia Dunnit says:

    Oh great idea for torso use! It will make a compelling book, whether alphabetical or otherwise and of course, if you enjoy making the tags, you'll find it becomes a book without effort!

  24. karen says:

    These torsos are fabulous! Aha, it was you who told me about Create Everyday in November! I am trying but I am not posting everyday. I have created in some way everyday though, so thank you! It is a great idea and I see it has got your mojo in overdrive!

    What an unusual project but how clever… I think it's a lovely idea and a great way to get your mojo going!!!

  39. Elizabeth says:

    Love your torso idea – and I particularly like the one with music notes and flowers, I think it's the shades of browns couple with the music that appeals. Regards, Elizabeth
