The Sisterhood of the Traveling Journal

A while back, my 2 sisters, Pam and I started a traveling art journal. Each of us would do a page or two and then mail or pass it along to the next person on the list.

Here is the box complete with instructions and a 'goodie bag' we're always adding to and taking from.
The page on the left is by my sister Ruth (Corky), the one on the right, by me. Very coordinated if I do say so myself!
Here's one of my first entries.
And one from Pam.
Here are two pages from my sister Carol. For some odd reason, we've all been compelled to create circus-themed art. Hmm...
Here's one of my latest. My attempt at the more abstract.
And one more from my sister Corky.
We still have a lot of pages to finish. And now with my sister moving back to our neck of the woods, it should go much faster!

I highly recommend trying a traveling journal with your friends. It's fun to wrap it up, add goodies to the package and send it on its way. And it's even more fun to crack the box open and see what treasures are inside!

Well, well, well....if these pictures don't make the project look even better!! Great representation of the entire piece. I like your abstract. I'm always a sucker for circles and asian.
