The Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook #2

Did you think that I had abandoned the idea of the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook? After I was so enthusiastic about it last week? Of course not. However, I have been doing a colour mixing workshop this week, and I haven’t been able to get back to the Sisterhood.

I am going to post about the workshop very soon, but as a tease I am showing you my rose painting in the header photo. While I am distracting myself, let me I remind you that I am offering blog readers a 10% discount on any of my art work in the Etsy shop. Simply use the coupon code APRIL16 for the discount before the end of April. To look in my shop click here AnneLawsonArt

To get up-to-date with the Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook, have a look at my last post, here.

So far the Sisterhood is up to 7 people, but you are quite welcome to join. We have

  • Kate, who began the idea, and lives in Mackay, Northern Queensland
  • Elladee, who lives in Taylors Arms, NSW
  • Sue, who lives in Mt Vernon, Washington
  • Sandra from Teneriffe, Queensland
  • Alys from San Jose, California
  • Chas who I think lives in Melbourne
  • and me, from Melbourne too.

If I have missed you, I am sorry. My emails are a mess at the moment, and I may have mistakenly overlooked one. Just let me know in the comments that you would like to be part of the fun.

As you can see from the list we have Australia and sections of North America well covered ~ but always room for more. It would be great if our little sketchbook could head to the UK  and/or Europe, South America, Africa…..Any one else like to play?

Do you think we need more than one sketchbook? I am happy to send one to each of you, which could be sent around. That means each person would be adding to seven sketchbooks and passing them on, at different times, of course. Would it be too complicated? It has the advantage of each person having their own sketchbook at the end of the project. Let’s have a chat about it in the comments.

Also, I did originally say that there were no rules……but there has to be one. Your contribution can’t include plant or animal material [no feathers 😦 ]. Australia has very strict quarantine laws, which ban the importation of such things.

So, any one else like to join the Sisterhood? Send me an email to annebags@optusnet.com.au    I promise I will sort out the mess before your email arrives! Chas, can you send me an email with your postal details? And Sue too, as I haven’t kept yours. I got your town from the wonderful mug mat you sent me!

    Just for now, I think just one sketchbook would be a good way of testing the concept. If the ‘test run’ works well, we could always do it again till everyone has one! Would you mind if I reblog the original post on my blog to extend the awareness a bit?

    I think a test run as katechiconi describes is good. But I do like the idea of everyone eventually having one each. About to send you an email Anne.

    Doing a page in seven (or more!) sketchbooks sounds intimidating, but one a month shouldn’t be too onerous. I’ll send you my snail mail address via email.
