Flying Pictures First Sketchbook Exchange


Lindsay's sketchbook has arrived in Tuscany. I thought it was going to take forever as most of our incoming mail does. Lindsay resisted the temptation to decorate the envelope so it couldn't be termed 'package' and end up in that Poste Italiane black hole in Milan.


What a surprise to find not only a beautiful collage by Lindsay but an envelope full of treasures for my own artistic adventure.


I love the little canoes passing through the mountains of beautiful Japanese printed paper.

Now I have to carry on Lindsay's water theme into the two pages I will add to her book before sending it on to Casey.

You can follow the journey of all seven handmade Flying Pictures sketchbooks HERE.

This is going to be fun watching you girls and seeing what you do.

Does each book have its own theme??? This looks like such fun!

What fun!!! I love your trees in the post below - olive trees have such wonderful shapes!

Thank you all for sharing the fun. It really is like Christmas when 'the book' arrives. Even HWEM had a flicker of excitement in the corner of his mouth.

Joan - yes, each book has its own character, if not declared theme. As you can see, Lindsay has a Water theme. Next one I receive via Lindsay will be Ronell's, which is Rainbow Moments.
