10 friends project

10 friends project10 friends projectA new series of the 10 friends project has officially begin. I got the nerve wracking job of starting it off. The task this time around is to take a photo, that is mailed to us, and style it in any way of our choosing and then pass it along.

I got the photo from Twig last week and had various ideas of how to style it. True was my little helper and brainstorming ideas along with me. We thought of painting a picture of it and then having the original photo in the background, or styling it on the wall with the girls looking up, but nothing felt right. As we were playing with various ideas of dressing up our photograph, we decided to gather inspiration from Rene Magritte (we love him!), and thus this is what we came up with. It is inspired by his Son of Man painting.

The task isn’t limited to using just the photograph, though we chose to do so. I can’t wait to see how the next person changes it up! In the end, one lucky follower will receive a large canvas print of the final work! If you wanna learn more or follow along, just check out here to see who is coming up next in the line-up. I’m honored they asked me to be part of it and to be in such great company! Can follow along @madebytwig or #10friends on instagram to check out what’s going on!

Speaking of friends, my friend and jewelry designer Lisa Leonard has something great to share! Her family was chosen to do a reality show called Life by Design. Watch the trailer here. Her family is the sweetest and they have such an amazing story to share! If you want to get more info, just visit her blog!

    I love Rene Magritte. Son of Man hung in my college dorm room for years! What a cool idea.

    I asked my husband for one of Lisa Leonard’s necklaces for mother’s day, I’d been wanting one for so long, and he got it for me..I love it so much..hearing her story makes me that much happier that I supported her family. She’s got an incredible attitude in the face of some daunting circumstances. Very inspiring…
