"Woman" Collaborative Journal

Sign ups for our new project begin now. Please post your name and email address at our flickr group. If you don't have flickr and don't want to sign up (it's free) please email me with your information so that I can add it to the group. The way it will work is that the person working on the journal currently will email the next person on the list for his/her snail mail address. You are responsible for the cost of shipping to the following person. The journal will go through the entire list until we're done and then will be sent back to me. I will then scan each of the pages and tell you when I am going to auction the journal.

We are going to go with Emma’s idea for our theme. The title is “Woman” and should represent- “the wonders and difficulties of growing up into a woman in this day and age. Kind of an universal theme and then again interesting since participants are different ages and different parts of the world. And what does womanhood mean to different individuals? motherhood, finding love/relationship, surviving independently economically and otherwise, growing to feel comfortable in our own skin and body.” If you’re a man- please don’t shy away from participating! Do a page on what you think of today’s woman or of a woman important in your own life.

You are welcome to use any type of medium you like and are comfortable with. Or, try something new! Journal, paint, do photography, use pastels, colored pencils, collage, etc. The possibilities are endless. I ask that you only do a one or two page layout (two being the back of the previous page and then the current page). PLEASE DO NOT WRITE OR TAMPER WITH ANYONE ELSE’S ART!

Somewhere on your layout please include your first and last name, your location, and your email address.

Please keep the journal for no longer than one week before passing it on!

All proceeds benefit Unicef and their fight for Girl’s Education around the globe!

Please feel free to share any questions or comments you have. I am so excited about this project!! Thank you for participating!

Is there a standard size we should make the pages, or do we create on a journal you provide?
