A Little Color: Guerilla Art

Phone Booth ala Afghan: by Knit the City
The world needs more guerilla art, don't you think?  It just makes me happy when I think about coming across any of these little numbers.  I think I may need to start a guerilla art movement of my own some day because you should be the change you want to see in the world and all that.   Whatever the case, enjoy the color of street rebellion...
Lego Stone-Wall Filler: by Jan Vormann
Raining Color: via Street Art Utopia
Yarn Pot Hole Filler: by Juliana Santacruz Herrera
Fallen Trees as Colored Pencils: via Street Art Utopia
my favourite is the wool in the road cracks,
makes me think about doing some of my own guerrilla art in my area...
there are some very boring power boxes that could do with a paint job?????mermaids and toadstools perhaps???

dancing dolls

My number 2 is an excellent dancer,recently she has been involved in her school representative dance group,
and a few of the mothers and I had to help out with some costuming
{I secretly love jobs like this]
We had to construct life sized dolls and strollers,
and I think they turned out well
[except that they freaked me out sitting on the couch late at night!!]a little too real!!!!!
kind of remind me of raggedy anne and andy,don't you think?
