I Got All My Sistahs With Me !

So a while back, I was invited by Jaime of Artsyfartsy Me to take part in a great round robin exchange.

A group of 13 women artists/bloggers will be passing along one journal each through the mail, around the world.

At the end of 13 months, our books will come back to us, filled with art from all of the talented artists involved.

Our theme is “Time : A Calendar Year”.

In order to make mailing costs reasonable, many of us have chosen 5X8” Visual Journals by Strathmore with Mixed Media paper in them.

The journal comes with a plain brown thick cardboard cover.

You know I had to Queen-a-fy it !

Our first page needed to be a sign in sheet for our fellow ‘Sistahs”

Then we decided on creating a two page spread in our favorite color, giving some hints into our personalities to inspire the other people receiving our books. A kind of self-portrait if you will.

After my purple pages, I did a doodled page some more info. about myself.

Now that my journal has been prepped, it is time to send it off on its adventures!

I am excited to be participating in such a cool project with such a great group of talented women.

You can find out more about them by checking out their blogs linked just below

i pray that this round robin works out for all of you...

about 4 years ago, 26 of did a similar thing using the alphabet as what prompted us....and it failed about half way through.

so hopefully with only 13 girls {my lucky number} this will be an amazing experience for you and all the sistahs.....

what you have done already, cover, sign in and a couple of pages is beyond fabulous !!!

Kim...So vibrant, so pretty, so revealing...
you've outdone even yourself!
I kinda wish I wouldn't have mailed my book yet...my inferiority complex is whispering.
You are amazing (I know I always say it...but it's true)
