Spread 267 – A Pile Of Agains July 20, 2015Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
In order to recall that very young person we once were, you know, the one who made glorious and free-natured marks on any found surface, a wall, a table, a piece of paper, a book, we need just one little bit of inspiration. That one little bit has to be NEW in order to open up all gates of vigor. NEW in order to invite in fear and fierceness all at once, the mixture that a creative state of mind is made of. Such inspiration arrived one day in a sturdy envelope. Three little stencils came out and immediately sparked that bit of inspiration in me. Three little stencils with mostly words on them. Not the usual words like “love”, “gratitude”, “hope”, but words that evoke something else I was yet to explore. Words like “alone”, “abandon”, “enough” and “false.” Aah, sweet newness! These stencils were designed by my friend, the high-spirited and most generous Seth Apter and I am so happy I got to access my “Pile of Agains” through their use. The three stencils are produced by StencilGirl Products and are being launched today. Learn more at Seth’s The Altered Page…and then get you some newness.
