I couldn't help but be inspired by Seth Apter's Altered Page Paper Stack Project. People are taking photos of their journals all stacked up and it's impressive. It's more than impressive, it's simply delicious. I want to scoop them up and begin devouring them. All those secrets, hidden in messy stacks. Everyone's stack is completely different because everyone's journaling and sketching style is different.
What struck me most about all this delightful stacking is how it enables you to see how much work you've actually done. We tend to kick ourselves about and downplay the work that we are getting accomplished. Stacking up those journals, paintings, quilts....whatever your medium of choice, is testament to your artistic achievement. Okay, so not all of the pages are full. That's just fine. The universe is *not* going to rain down on you. Stack away dear friend. All you need is two of something to qualify as a small pile. Show the world your creative ambition!
When you've created the Eiffel Tower of journals or mixed media madness, take a photo. Now that you've uncovered those long lost sketchbooks, it's time to unfurl them and lay down some marks. Remember the joy you had when you first started them and begin again. Your stack will continue to grow as you pursue this journey of art.
