Tell me What,Why,and How?

                    Some have asked… What is a travel box?   Why are we doing this? How much does it cost

  Follow me as I try explain what the travel box is… It's a box full of magic with items of power in it to help inspire group members that sometimes just can’t find the inspiration that may need just a little boost, and for those who inspiration comes naturally. It’s a great tool to help with the development on how to look for inspiration. We all go through this. It’s a great way to use different techniques that you have not tried. There is no right or wrong, and about having fun, because as this box travels around the world it get's more powerful! You can’t buy the Travel Box. The cost is for shipping and your materials.  
   The travel Box does come with some guidelines,                                                                                        Guidelines for this box.                                                                                                                       All items need to be of quality, Member participation,stay within the theme if there is one. Share @ B'Sue Boutique Creative Group and pin on our board that I made just for reveals@ the only other thing is be able to follow direction, because with this box there are several twist and turns along the way. Oh... I forgot.  It is very important you follow the instruction that has only your name on it in the box…… It’s a SECRET!!! Have Fun!!

cont> Travel box# 2

       Just wondering has anyone figured out yet what we're doing? Yes, we are making some charms from our past to remind us everyday how far we all have come as individuals and artists. You will create 7 charms to be added to a chain that will be in the travel box.HERE'S A TWIST!!!  one of those charms you made must be from 1956, That charm please mark 1956 on the back somewhere.THAT ONE CHARM HAS TO STAY ON THE CHAIN WHERE IT WAS ORIGINALLY PLACED! You will take three charms off the chain  that you like from another artist to make a blast from the past charm bracelet for yourself, but please make sure it's  from your childhood!  By the time we are done we will have one of those " Blast From The Past Sinker Necklaces" with all kinds of history.  No matter what kind of artist you are this will work for you just stay within the theme!  I see resin pouring, revits popping, clay twisting along with some re purpose coming to see me, and colors coming alive!

When you receive the travel box you'll need to take a photo of the blast from the past item that you will be creating like I did. Share with us@B'sue Boutiques Creative Group in group. Please Do Not Share The Charms That You Create.Just the photo of what you're going to try to make like I did. This will come at a later date, please take photo's of your charms and save them. You'll have three weeks to create your charms add to the chain send the box on it's travels please.If you can send the box sooner that would be great! When you get the box please notify me by private message to let me know you have it. I will then message you with a reveal maybe. We may do a blog hop with this one. The day you ship please message me the tracking so I may keep track where we're at.

Cont. on the " Travel Box" reveals

While the "Travel Box" is making it's way through the United States. I for one am very happy with the reveals that are coming out. This is the first time that I have hosted such a project, though  I have lots of experience managing business and somewhat my life this has been so rewarding to see what and how group members can really put something together and create a magnificent piece of art. It's like watching kids make something for the very first time.  And what detail was used in Irene's piece!!!! So Amazing!!!

Travel Box Reveal #3 -
Irene Hoffman's
"Butterfly Kissed Bouquet"

The 4 items I picked from the
Travel Box were a butterfly, a key and 2 hearts.

All components used in this assemblage piece are B'sue Boutiques, with the exception of the chain and bead connectors made with copper spacers, czech crystals and pineapple quartz.

If you're wondering where the 2 hearts are in this piece, I did something a little different. I rolled and formed them into 2 small tussies and filled them with curly beaded strands. Making this piece was great fun. I hope to do it again. 
Irene used these piece's out of the Travel Box to make butterfly kisses bouquet.

The travel box has travel 1/2 way through it's travels.

The reveals are coming out from the travel box.   
                Are you artsy and creative? Or maybe you don't think so. I challenge you to challenge yourself come join us at B'Sue Creative Group on Facebook.Come Get those feet wet!We would love to have you. 
                 This is a fun way to help inspire and develop your inter artistry in creating wearable designs. There is no wrong way to create art. It's really about how you want to express yourself through your designs that makes it a art form. I call it Art, because well let's see ... if you decorate a cake so much goes into it. Taste of the icing and the cake itself.Putting those flowers on it in the right spot getting the colors just right,and all the other details to make it just right.                                                                                                                      Imagine this... I want to  and impress Chef Ramsey on Hell's Kitchen.Could I do it? Yes, The challenge would be a bit big for me, but I could do it.I do have some skills in the area. I don't think I would get a restaurant though. Bobby Flay on the other hand; I would defintely do a cook off ;" Southern style."By now you are probably asking yourself why are we talking about all this cooking. Well you see... if I was going to cook a meal for you or anyone else. I'm cooking to impress or I don't cook! How am I going to acheive this ? With some simple techniques of course. Smell, taste,presentation,texture, imagine that of all things texture and lets not leave out color there are a lot more of these this is just a few, so you see cooking is also a art form! In short creativity comes in all kinds of forms. It's all in how you see it. With practice you can acheive all things!                                                                                                  These artist have made a statement with their designs while keeping within the theme "Summer has Arrived"
