It’s been very active past month for the 6 Degrees of Creativity Random Acts of Art Adventure! During the month of May, the project had 4 stops across three different states: Indiana, Maryland, and Virginia:
Stop #25 with Julie in Indiana:
Creative Goodness with Julie in Georgetown, Indiana
Julie was excited to receive many vintage items in her stash of creative goodness from Heather in Illinois and made art that would be given away as door prizes at the next Corn Island Steampunk Society!
Stop #26 with Suzanne in Maryland:
Creative goodness with Suzanne in Dunkirk, Maryland
Suzanne is creating little books for the Tandem Typewriter II Tour for the little libraries that they are creating across country and hopefully some creative goodness from this stash can be used for this project!

The adventure continued onward to Paula for another stop in Maryland:
Creative Goodness with Paula in Gaithersburg, Maryland

Paula’s Creative Passport page is dedicate to Giusto Constantino, her paternal Great-grandfather. Paula shares, “That is him sitting on the stoop of his home in NYC. He was Sicilian and when ever anything went wrong and someone complained about it he reminded you that, “These are the things that happen to the living.” In Sicilian it is, “Queste cose succedono ai vivi.” …and my feeling is that ART is for the living.”
Stop #28 with Debbie in Virginia:
Creative Goodness with Debbie in Mavisdale, Virginia

This past month also saw the safe return of the pouch’s Creative Passport (thank you Julie!). As reported in my last travel update, the Passport Book was full from the previous 24 stops. The Creative Passport was returned to 6 Degrees of Creativity Headquarters and a new book was mailed to Indiana to artfully document the remainder of the adventure!
Check out this short video of the Creative Passport and the pages created from July 2013-April 2014 throughout the US and Canada:
Next on the pouch’s travel agenda is to head south in the US! Yay!
About the project**: A 8 x 6 inch canvas pouch filled with various artsy stuff, is mailed amound participants to make some creative goodness with…then the created art is given away in a random act of art to someone else! The pouch gets filled back up with more creative stuff & then mailed again to the next participant to continue the creative cycle! This project has 40+ more stops over the next 12 months (more or less!) to destinations in the US, Canada, Italy, the UK, India, Singapore, New Zealand, and Australia.
** Signing up for this project is now closed.
