"Les carnets baladeurs" or The "Travelling Sketchbooks" sau "Caietele Calatoare"

I was visiting one of my sidebar links when I came across the "Carnets baladeurs" concept.
So I thought about my sketchbook and how it would love to be filled with drawings from other artists.

What is "Carnets baladeurs"?

It's a way for artists to exchange artwork. Each artist has a sketch book that is sent around the word. The recipient will create a new piece of art in the book and send it to someone else and so on until it gets back to it's owner.

I am aware nor everyone draws or paints, but how about taking this "Traveling notebooks" concept further.

Here is what I have in mind:

* We start thematic sketch books. I would probably choose BIRDS
* We start the books with our own artwork and sent it further
* The participating artists are not required to use any special technique. It can be drawing, painting, collage, stamping etc.

So who wants to join me? We need at least 3 persons to start.

Edit:
I will post the list of those who sign up here:

1. Adina (Italia)
2. Lolly (Romania)
3. Laura (India)

Hi Meda, I started my blog ( http://lucrurifrumoase.blogspot.com/ ) a year maybe 2 years ago when I started my arts and craft projects. But soon I found no interest in it. But I continued with my arts and crafts and I also started selling my things. Very exciting. I was googleing the other day and I came across your blog and I am still here since yeserday. So I started posting on my blog again. I deceided to wrie to you when I saw the idea with the ravelling notebook and I think is a great idea. You're my hero, Meda. xo
