Strathmore’s Pass the Journal

Last summer a lovely journal arrived in my mailbox. It was a journal traveling from friend to friend, artist to artist, as part of Strathmore’s “Pass the Journal” project. Each person had a week or two with the journal and then pass it along.


I pulled out my acrylic  paints and colored the background before drawing my “mandalas.”

On one side I drew a snake and had a blast filling it in with various shapes and patterns.


On the facing page I drew a hamsa symbol with the mandala in the center.

Strathmore sent out 12 journals. Check out where they traveled and get inspired by all of the incredible art styles. You may find a color scheme or decorative element to add to your mandalas this week.

You’ll find me in journal #3 called, “Pulp.” Zoom in and out of the map and click on each marker to view the various pages and to learn a bit about each artist.

    • Hi Steve, Right now I don’t have the time to organize a “round robin.” I’ll keep it in mind for a future group project for the Sharing Circle.

    I like steve’s idea…maybe down the road members of the sharing circle could take responsibility for some of these types of projects. I’ve participated in them before in other groups and they have been successfully handled by a member – although it can be a major responsibility and the person in charge really has to keep on top of it.


    • Hi Susan, I would love it if some members from the Sharing Circle coordinated these types of projects. Organizing these projects do involve a lot more time than most people realize and the last one that someone offered to host dropped the ball. It was disappointing and left me feeling reluctant. I know with the right people, it will run smoothly and successfully. Know that even with my reluctance, I am open to it.
