The Erosion Bundle Project 2011
my erosion bundle hanging outside my greenhouse
contents of the bundle ivy leaves, copper, rust etc
bought this sign this morning..made me laugh
I remember seeing lots of odd bundles on people blogs last year and was intrigued by the erosion bundle project. I was doing the gardening today planting a red gooseberry bush and blackberry cane at the back of the veg plot and was pleased with myself as I tidied away all the dead plants in the greenhouse and sewed up the door which had ripped. Whilst in there I found a really old rusty hanging basket chain and then got started thinking of the erosion project. I have combined ivy leaves, old guitar wires, winter berries, old rusty copper coins, washers and wrapped it all up in a piece of dyed cotton with the rusty chain and put vinegar on it. I have hung it up outside my now tidy greenhouse and will open it in April to see what has happened and later on will create an art piece with it. Here is the link to the erosion bundle project site for this year.
