Finished

Over 2 years ago I joined a project set up by Uschi over at Papierwelt in which 12 people from all over the world would start a journal at the same time and send it on a 12 month trip around the world, pages being completed by each of the other participants before it was sent on again......

Well now a little over 2 years later the journals are reaching their final destinations (in small part due to my inability to complete the last 2 and holding on to them for rather a while). I sent my final journal to Marianne over at Applehead just yesterday....that makes 9 journals drawn in. We lost 2 people early on and my journal itself got lost on the way to its first destination...so pages from each participant were to be sent to me and then I would put them together into a book. I am still awaiting pages from a few people...but it has been a fun project regardless of losses, departures and delays!

It's been fun to be working together with a host of people - check out our blog for some wonderful art work - Travelling Journals....

Here's just a few of the pages I have completed over the past 24 months....

That sounds like such an intereseting project. Two years is a long time... are you happy for having finished the project or perhaps also a bit ...mmm can't find the right world...the norwegian word is "vemodig" but I don't know how to translate it...the best word I can come up with is "sadness", but that is not the exact word...oh well.

By the way: share your casserole recepie please :-)
