    The Rhodia Journal Swap #1

    “Reading, conversation, environment, culture, heroes, mentors, nature – all are lottery tickets for creativity. Scratch away at them and you’ll find out how big a prize you’ve won.”
    Twyla Tharp 

    page one

    pg. 2, an introductory mandala

    pg. 3, brainstormed lots of color names

    work in progress

    pg. 4

    pg. 5, testing 5 inks {j. herbin bleu pervenche, doc ph martin's bombay black, j. herbin cafe des iles, rouge opera, ambre de birmanie}, all very smooth and silky on this paper, i liked all but rouge opera {too pale on this paper, lush on whiter paper}

    pg. 6, don't know if this is finished or not

    The Rhodia webbie has creamy white dotted paper and a soft orange leatherette cover.

    There are 12 Rhodia webbie journals traveling around the states. Twelve folks diligently filling pages with all sorts of creative fodder. So I am starting with a blank journal this month; I'll fill about 7 pages and mail it off to the next person. Another participant will mail me the journal they start. So my JOURNAL #1 starts here. There's a tumblr blog for the Rhodia Swap if you want to follow the journal pages posted by the participants.

    i clicked on the Tumblr link, but i get the message that i don't have permission to access that page, even after i had logged in. is there something more to do, or is that page restricted just to the participants of the swap?

    looks like a fun project. i'll be interested to find out what you think of the Rhodia pages after you've worked in that journal a bit longer. i've been wanting to try one out. thanks.

    {Tammy}: Mo, sent you an email and updated the post with the correct link, sorry!

    Technically, one cannot have a "first annual." There can be only one initial event and it can't really be called the first until you've had a second. Until then it's just an event. Only if it happens again — at about the same time of year — do you get to use the words "second" and "annual."

    Hope you have a greg time participating with the Rhodia experiment. Congratulations on being selected, you are in superb company.

    {Tammy} David, Next time I'll write "documenting the thirteenth semi-annual anti-journal festival" instead!
