The Journal Project

Over the summer I heard about a great project/exhibit that an art gallery was presenting called The Journal Project. The Janice Charach Gallery offered up blank journals for artists (and artist-wannabes) to create a work of art to be displayed in the gallery. When I heard the journals could be shared among a group of people, with each person contributing a page, I jumped at the chance to participate. I posted on my facebook page, asking other moms to kids with Autism if they'd like to join in. I got a great response and the project was a GO!

I left it pretty open with the only rule being that the artists must be mothers to children with Autism. I let these mamas choose what and how they'd like to participate. I started with the cover page:

And then I sent it on it's way! Here's what came back to me after being sent ALL around the country:
