There are 8 of us in a round robin sharing pages of art in our journals and each month we complete 2 pages and send on the book to the next person in order. By the end of the year, we will each have a journal with pages of inspiration unique from each artist.

This is the first round robin I have been involved in and I must say it was a little intimidating to begin with... I mean writing/creating in someone's journal with the possibility of messing it up, raised the fear level a bit. But then, I started thinking about creating in my own journal and how it is not really much different. With Art Journaling, there isn't much that you can't fix or do -over.  But a do-over in someone else's journal is .. hummm ... still a little scarey.

So I started thinking of it as just working in my own journal. Although, working in my own, I am a little more grungier and a lot more messier .... so I haven't totally let go , but the fear of messing up their journals is becoming less and I am enjoying it more.

We have a month to work in each one, but I am staying true to myself and working on mine in the 11th hour. I have always seem to work better under stress and time constraints.

The two pages in this journal are for Lisa (the Wright One).  It flies in the mail tomorrow!

          The robin flies tomorrow to Stephanie's!
          Have a wonderful week ladies!

  12. I very much like that last sentiment. It puts ones own life and trials in perspective. We are, indeed, all survivors of something.
