I'm sure you've guessed by now that I love Tim's work. In a recent blog post, he wrote about a project that he's involved with. Along with MANY other artists, Tim was asked to create a charm that would be part of a larger work to be raffled off for charity. All the completed charms were attached to an almost life sized art doll, and the money raised will be donated to cancer research. A worthy cause with or without the incentive of possibly winning this awesome doll.
I was not only moved to make a donation, but to create a charm (which I turned into a pin) myself. I loved the little bird's nest Tim did and have blatantly copied that idea.
For the text...my mantra: "art saves lives"....I used Scrabble Tiles, scanned the words, reduced them in size, and attached them to my inchie charm base.
