My Erosion Bundle Opened

I was late opening up my erosion bundle due to health problems recently but as it was such a gorgeous Spring day today, I thought it was high time that I did this.  Here are some photos of how things turned out.
 My little bundle in its resting place.


Hard to see but tiny marks have been imprinted onto these strips.
Several rusty marks from various metal items inside.

A circular rust mark from a metal washer (again, hard to see in the photo).
This was my first attempt at this project and it is quite bland really compared to a lot of the others.  If I do this project again, I will add something which will discharge a colour inside such as berries or fruit as there will be more amazing effects I think.  Today, I have hung all the pieces inside out in the fresh air to air off before I try to consider what I am going to do with them.

I've never heard of an erosion bundle before, it looks an interesting project.

I'm hoping to take part in this project next year (missed this year's). Your results are prettily subtle and it will be interesting to see how you adjust your choice of bundle innards next year.

I hope you are feeling better, and that the beautiful Spring sunshine is putting a skip in your step.

Your bundle is the first I've seen of this process and I love it. What a fabulous natural idea!

I think your bundle turned out great, I like subtle effects.

This is the first year I did the Erosion Bundle project too. I agree with you, next time I want berries, etc. that will add more color. Also I will make a more diverse bundle next time because I really like the process.

Nice subtle results....and bonus lovely shadows in the photos! If you want one of the small badges I made from my erosion bundle (which almost completely destroyed!) email me at 4rooster@clear.net.nz cheers, Lynn

I like the subtlety! I wonder if it would work here...our climate is soooo dry.

You used some of the prettiest lace and fabrics in there! Got some good rrust stains. I'm like you, I'd do some more color bleeding things next year. :0) Maybe I'll even throw one in the ground now. ha!

Hi Bunty! I'm so glad to have found your blog!!! I've heard of these erosion bundles and would love to try one myself. I've also heard that you can pull apart a steel wool pad and wrap it inside to encourage rust staining ~ It's so good to meet you, xxoo, Dawn

What a lovely result! I love the rust. I did this project last year and it was brilliant fun - ideal for taking you out of your creative comfort zone and forcing you to try something you wouldn't normally do. My whole bundle turned pink which was definitely outside my comfort zone! Cant wait to see what you produce! Good luck!

I think it's beautiful and can't wait to see what you make with it! I opened my bundle today, and I loved what I got. I did add LuminArte' powders which was responsible for a bit of the color, but a floral pick did wonders too.

Well, this is a new one on me,too! I'm sure our great-grandparents must be laughing their heads off, watching us devise ways to make things look old:)hehehe But each day that I get older, I take great comfort in knowing that "old" things are appreciated and valued! Your blog is beautiful. Will post a link to mine. Can't figure out how I've missed you all this time....! (Green with envy over your garden pics!!!)
