Teesha Style Journal

Front Cover
4 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Over the last few weeks I've been busy creating a Teesha-Style journal for a round-robin in my art group. The journal was created using Teesha Moore's instructions (click here to go there), but it's only half the size of Teesha's so that it's easier to mail to our swap partners.

Inside Flap

After constructing the journal from a sheet of watercolor paper, we were instructed to color all of the pages with watercolors, acrylics or water soluble crayons. We then had to complete the front cover, inside flap, an artists' sign-in page, the back cover, another back flap and a "jam" page where everyone playing will contribute a few images before sending it to our swap partner.

Artists' Sign-In Page

Overview

I've never participated in a round robin, and this will be challenging and a lot of fun. Thought you might enjoy seeing the first half of my Teesha journal. I'll reveal the second half in a later post.

Hope you find the time to play today!

Your art never disappoints. You pack more color into a page than anyone I know. Your pages are terrific.

I know you will love doing a RR because you make great art and will get great art in return. You will not be disappointed and will truly treasure the finished book when you get it back.

I agree with Rhonda - WOW!

Lynn said...

I am lost for words, this is incredible!!!!!! I am speechless...
Well, not quite, it is beautiful, rich in color and detail, because that is just you, the depth, did I say detail.. oh my.. I have fallen in love :)

I am not at all sure how a Round Robin works, but does this come back to you?

When I saw this on my blog roll I clicked over as fast as I could and huge chill bumps popped out! Heee Heee! This is just so pretty...there are no words...I am sad that I had to drop out of the group because I was among some of the most amazing artists and I know that the journal is going to be such a treasure! Can't wait to see the rest.

Oh this is so gorgeous and so you! You may have followed Teesha's journal design ideas but this is (your) work- beautifully colored and meticulously designed - just stunning Terri. You have set the bar high for this journal collaboration.

OH MY OH MY!!!! Oh Terri this is so amazing!!!!! I love everything about it! BRIGHT AND WONDERFUL!!!!

I an currently doing a journal project with ladies from the Outsider Artist group it has been the most amazing experience! We each chose a color scheme and a general theme and did our own spread and the front and back cover then we sent it to the next person. SOOO no one is telling what they see we just pass the journal on till everyone has participated then we get our personal journal back. I CAN HARDLY WAIT!

I am sure you are so excited to see the finished product in your group also.
XXXOOO

Oooh Terri...I had so much to catch up here but I've read it all now.
From your snowy images - the long ride home - your winnings ( LUCKY GIRL !!) the first zetti - the charmes and at last your Teesha journal.
I realy don't know where you find the time to post almost every day and create in the meanwhile so many beautiful things.
I wish I had more time to visit you (and others) It seems every time that I'm a wayyyy behind.
****
Have a nice day my friend and enjoy part 2 of your new journal !
Rian.
