If you are a mixed media artist, a blogger, or an art lover, you must know of Michelle Ward. To mark the one-year anniversary of the death of her sister Shannon and to honor her unending support of the art blogging community, a collaborative art journal has been made by 39 artists. This top secret project, which has been going on behind the scenes since January, was hosted by Julie, JeriAnn, and Lisa. Michelle has just received this gift in time to bring it home with her to share with her family in Shannon's memory and honor. You can read all about the project and Michelle's response on this post on Michelle's blog. You can see pictures of all the pages on Flickr here.
Michelle -- I am so glad that I had the opportunity to be part of this project. Thank you for your positive spirit, good humor, endless support, original and inspired art, and for all the work you put into HCIT! Hope this journal reminds you of all the people out there who appreciate you and I hope this heavy book lightens your load!
