Round Robin Journaling 2014



In July I started working on a Round Robin Journal with Ruth of Twelve Squared Creations. We originally had planned for at least someone else to join us but they were unable to due to their busy schedule.  Technically its not a true round robin since there are only two of us. Had there been more participants the journal would have gone to one person and once they finished with the prompts it would be mailed to the next person and so on until it eventually returned to the owner who would then have a collection of works from all participants of the group.  If things go well this time I will most likely create another sometime next year and hopefully with more participants so that it is a true round robin.

We each came up with several prompts for the journals then chose 10 of those prompts to do and started working on them in August. Our deadline is to finish the journals by the end of November.  Though it is flexible since we are both busy.  Our journals will be 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and will be bound using the arc system by staples. We both have the arc punch so we can easily add our pages and create our own covers.  There really aren’t any rules except to be creative when doing them and to only give sneak peeks of the prompts instead of showing everything.  This way when we get our journals we can be surprised.

Every once in a while I will post sneak peeks of the prompts.  Most likely two prompts at a time.

Below are the prompts we decided to work on.
