Stack Attack!

Today Seth Apter invited artists far and wide to share their stacks. Mine tend to be of vintage Canadian books (mostly school books that reference Canada in some way on the cover) and Remains of the Day journals (RODs). Here are the stacks of journals, though a few are missing-they were made for friends and have long since gone off to their new homes.


The smallest one on top was the very first ROD I ever made. The second one in the middle is my 2010 Olympic & Paralympic journal, housing all my memories of that incredible time in my life. The third, is the one I'm currently working on.


A peek at the pages of the one I'm working on right now.


There's 2 very full signatures. I'm at the point now where I'm just going back through the pages and adding smaller details. I hope to have it done by the end of October.

If you want to see up close and personal what's inside the pages of my first ROD and the Olympic & Paralympic one, you can-just go to my youtube channel to view flip-through videos of both journals!

And just a reminder that Seth's got a fabulous book coming out in early March 2012, The Pulse of Mixed Media. (I posted about it here.) The good news is you can now pre-order it on Amazon!

Love your plump journals. I have a ROD cover, but no insides yet.

I am a BIG fan of ROD journals. I would love to see inside yours. They are so elegant. Sorry I'm late arriving, but I've been taking a long look at all the stacks.
