I made some changes to this project. There doesn't seem to be enough interest for me to send out a journal each month. So, I changed the name from A Year of Art Journals to Pam's Traveling Art Journals. This way we can pass one journal around as people are interested, and when it's full I'll start a new one.
These are 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I'm making them by hand, and keeping the weight so they can be mailed as letter size, or just a couple of stamps in the US, I don't know how the postal system works in other countries, but at least it will be minimal postage. Note: When I mailed the first journal, it was 1.2 ounces, so I put a postcard stamp on with the regular letter (.50) stamp.
Please let me know if you want to participate. Sometimes people just like to watch, so I'm not going to assume you want to be added just because you join this group.
Post here when you receive the journal, and when you send the journal. Only keep the journal for 2 weeks. If you need more time post here, so we know what's going on.
Paint, draw, collage, whatever you want, but it must lay flat. The journal needs to be able to close all the way, so it can be mailed easily, and if there's too much stuff added to the journal, the weight will increase and so will the postage.
When you're done, you can send the journal on to the next person on the list. If the journal is full, please send it back to me.
When I receive the full journal, I'll send documentation to everyone who contributed.
