Taking Stock

Out of curiosity and the whole year-end look back, year-ahead look forward thing, I pulled out all of my art journal pages + moleskines + journals from every basket, shelf, nook + cranny.

I found 9 journals and moleskines full of doodles and mandalas.

A stack of stitched journals.

Everything but the loose AJ pages is here.

5 bound art journals and altered books.

The exacompta I'm working in now is on top, 90% finished.

The more interesting side of the journals + books above.

These are the 2 moleskines I'm working in at present, 25% filled with watercolors, doodles, mandalas.

All of the loose art journal pages!

The white boxes where I keep loose art journal pages when finished (archival boxes from the container store). I've been doodling since late 2006 and art journaling since the end of 2007. I think. Go collect your journals and photograph them! Optional: add a funny prop like a stuffed giraffe. The perfect way to avoid laundry and other productive activities.
