A new collaborative adventure for Etsians
The Etsy traveling journal is brand new, collaborative mail-art project. The basic idea is this:
A handmade journal is passed from one Etsian to another, via the mail. Each participant gets a full spread in the journal to create, embellish, draw, paint, write, *whatever* they want. Then they pass it along to the next person until the entire book is filled.
This first book will be 5 x 8 inches and have hard covers. It will come with a companion writing journal to include your thoughts and experiences on the project.
The finished book will be on display at the Etsylabs in NYC. We will have a blog set up to track the progress of the book, updated with images of each spread: etsyjournal.blogspot.com/
We also have a Yahoo! Group you can join: groups.yahoo.com/group/etsyjournal
Participation is first-come, first-served based on the order in which we receive your contact information.
