I have posted part 2 of my Following the Inspiration series about how I am coming up with my ideas for my 2010 BJP for anyone who wants to see how one idea can lead to another and eventually to a finished piece.
This is Blog #1 of the 08-09 BJP Blog #2 Blog #3 We have three BJP blogs because Blogger only allows 100 authors per blog. We have 260 members, so in order for everyone to be able to post, we need 3 blogs. We hope you'll visit and comment on all three.
The 2008-09 BJP, starts with September and continues through August of 09. Guidelines for participation may be foundhere.
To be an official member and to post to this blog, you must have registered prior to August 15, 2008.
Visit the 2008 BJPmember pages, a gallery of completed work by members who have finished 8 or more pages during the first year of the project.
We have our own BJP Flickr group, where we can post pictures of our work. This is a good way for members who do not have a personal blog to post pictures. Also, you can see many BJP pieces by different members in one place. You must "join" Flickr to post your pictures.
About the Bead Journal Project
The brain child of Robin Atkins, the first Bead Journal Project, which began in June of 2007, included 241 women and 1 man who were dedicated and committed to creating 12 bead journal pages, one per month, for a year.
The BJP is all about visual journaling using any media and techniques, providing it includes some beading. We are free to structure our bead journal pages any way we want, as long as all 12 are the same size.
The current years' Bead Journal Project runs from September, 2008 through August, 2009. This blog is a means by which we may support each other in process, techniques and design. Participants (many with links to their personal blogs or websites) are listed below.
Due to limitations of Blogger, there are three ongoing blogs to document the Bead Journal Project this year. Here are links to all three blogs:
