Art Journal Auctions!

Heart Rock
 
Last year I participated in a traveling journal exchange. through Blissfully Art Journaling . The plan was to auction the books (Moleskine) at the end of their travels through ArtlLand and donate the proceeds to charity. Well, they are finally listed on EBay! You will find the links and other information below thanks to Altered Arts Blog. This is a a very talented, great group of artists and women. There were pages specifically left blank in the book so that that the new owner would be able to add their own art work or thoughts. This is a chance to enjoy the work of some terrifically talented mixed media artists.

I participated in the "Love" journal and, believe it or not, one of my pages (below) is highlighted on the EBay page. Have a look at the auctions, read about the selected charities and consider placing a bid!
 
One of pages in the "Love" journal
The following information is from Altered Arts Blog"

"...In January 2010 a small group of artists agreed to participate in a collaborative art journaling project. The idea was for each artist to create three art journal entries based upon a theme – one was about “Love”, the second was about “Friendship” and the third was left “Open”. Each artist was asked to include an introduction page and two art entries about the theme of the journal they chose to work in. Each journal contains 36 different art entries. All three journals traveled throughout the United States and Canada for about twelve months. Two have returned safely and the third is slowly limping home – it ran into a few unexpected road blocks along the way, but will be traveling again soon.

It was proposed that these journals be auctioned off and the proceeds from each sale donated to a charity. The Love Journal would benefit a children’s charity. The Friendship Journal would benefit a women’s charity. The Open Journal would benefit Bernie Berlin’s no-kill animal shelter - known as "A Place to Bark". ..."
