Silver Crow Project

Stay at Home CJ - Innocence and Experience

The CollaborArt "Stay At Home CJ" is a project where  all the participants made just one background and come up with a theme for that background. We then sent our background  to our host, Sarah. She photocopied them and then we all got a full set of backgrounds (and our originals) back to work on. We all work on the same background each month - to the theme set by the backgrounds creator.

Month 6 of the Stay at Home CJ has arrived and caused me many a moment to scratch my head and ponder the theme of Innocence and Experience. Set by Pam, inspired by William Blake and coming with an equally challenging background...

So, cutting it right to the wire and beyond...  Getting desperate, I just went really literal, embarrassingly basic... made so many mistakes - am rubbish at hands and the 'old' hand had 6 fingers at one point! Eh? But I've ended up with one of my favourite pages from this CJ.

Chuffed to bits with it I am, even the dodgy bits. Please click through and see what everyone else did with the background - so different and diverse! You'll be able to see a preview of next months background too - the theme of which will be: Mermaid Tales! 

Thank you Pam for a really thought provoking theme and a gorgeous background to play with.
Thank you for stopping by today :)


  1. Hi there!

  6. I love yours too Carmen!!! The others are all very thought provoking and nothing more so than realising how differently we all think and react to exactly the same thing? The diversity is simply astonishing!!

  8. Gorgeous piece as always Carmen!

  9. What a fun idea for a project and what a fabulous job you have done with yours, Carmen. We as artists often spot the mistakes that others don't. I try not to mention the ones I make and see if others notice. Luckily I find that most people are too polite, lol. Nicky {Creative Flourishes} x
