How did it feel, leaving the pieces behine?  Were you sad to lose them; excited to leave them??

 I was very nervous, but excited to spread the arts. The places where people were staring at me made me more nervous. I had fun scouting out locations of where said item would be appreciated more. When I left my knight & dragon, I speed walked away from the playground. I didn't want some over protective mother or father cursing we out.

I received a very happy package from Lady_Lilybell last Saturday and I've been trying to post pictures of what I've done, but have been unable to find the pictures in the members' gallery. Anyhow, one showed up so I'll try again and at least I'll have an explanation:

I received seven collage items -- 3 magnets, 3 painting/collages, and 1 altered tin. My plan had been to put the magnets as surprises in elevators, but unfortunately our elevators have non-ferrous interiors and so, nothing on which to stick magnets.

For the "butterfly magnet", I put it on a door that led from a catering prep area to a ballroom -- leaving it for one of the hard working service people to find (gone within a day):



The second magnet placed was an "I love coffee" theme -- very relevant here and I put that next to an elevator and it was gone within 30 minutes. Sorry, that still seems to be in my gallery queue. I'll post when it comes through.



I claimed one of the paintings as my own and the other two went on bulletin boards -- I put two pushpins in a horizontal line and sat a painting on those, as if on an easel. The Charlie Brown themed one took 2 days to disappear, but the LOVE theme was gone when I looked again after only 12 hours.



I have yet to place the third magnet because it is a "Big Bang Theory" theme (soft kitten lullaby) and I plan to walk that over to the engineering building to place. I think they'll really love it. The altered tin is also still to be abandoned, but that is going on a lunch table because the "Get to Your Happy Place" interior will really speak to the students taking a break from classes.

Thanks Lady_lilybell. I hope to get more pictures up soon. Sorry for my tech problems.

I received from SheepBlue, three adorable  mini chunky houses, and three mixed media art pieces.  I am keeping one of the houses, and planning where to abandon now.  Two for sure will be abandoned near the art and design college and at the art gallery of Ontario.  One somewhere on campus at my alma mater, and the other two perhaps closer to home - not sure yet.  I will try to take pics when I abandon.

Hopefully pics will upload well, I have been having trouble with thtat lately.

sheepblue those are utterly fantastic.  I love the houses, so unique and mysterious.  And the other pieces with the rust, genius.

The rusty pieces are fantastically rusty -- my fave is the rusty dolly shrine.

First item abandoned.  I thought the star piece was right for abandoning outside, and we went to one of our hiking trails today with the dog.  It is a pretty popular spot for walking groups and nature tours, with a fair amount of traffic on weekends, so I am hoping it will be found soon.  Especially with Thanksgiving weekend next week (in Canada anyways).  I hung it off a branch of a tree right on the trail, and the bright tag that Sheepblue attached, and one I added are quite bright in the shadows.  There is still quite a bit of leaf canopy so it should be safe.
