As a high school art teacher I can tell you that this book made an immediate impact on my advanced classes where we have been working on visual journaling. The techniques are straightforward without being cookie cutter, step by step directions. The writing prompts are incredibly helpful. Whether you are a high school student stumped about what to journal next or a seasoned artist just looking for a spark the prompts in this book will definitely foster creativity and give you direction.
THANK YOU to the authors for making this book a little less feminine than the typical books on this subject. I've had my fill of vintage, shabby chic, flowers, princesses and butterflies all collaged within the depths of some shade of purple and pink. This book will inspire all levels of artists both male and female because it embraces chaos and emotion rather than repeatedl examples of perfect traditional art. In other words, journal about what's going on in your life that day, that...
I started art journaling late last year. I watched a lot of YouTube videos and learned what supplies I could buy and use on my pages. I watched others pulling together pages that would, in my mind, qualify as works of art. But when I attempted to start my own book and did a few pages I was totally dissatisfied with the results. I felt that I was trying to copy another persons inspiration and just couldn't tap into my own. I was very frustrated. I was looking for something that would help me find my voice. I was shopping on Amazon one day and found The Journal Junkies Workshop book and decided to buy it. I received the book in just two days, much faster than expected. I sat down and started reading it that night and finished it in the afternoon the next day. Then I sat at my art table and started a new page in my art journal. The ideas flowed and I played with some of the techniques the authors talked about. The resulting page was, in my humble opinion, beautiful. This book provides...
I bought this book for my daughter's 18th birthday. She'll be an art major at college, and she enjoyed art journaling in three high school classes. She loves the book, and it sent her to the local crafts store to purchase a new journal in celebration of it. The examples are inspiring; the book itself is made to look like a well-done (but not too refined) art journal. The instruction is more about what you can do right out of the box, basic techniques to master and everyday materials to use. None of the instruction is limiting; none has the reader ending with a predetermined form; none shows the reader, for instance, how to draw a horse. It's more about how to live out a journal. I've been writing in journals for several years, and I bought an artist's journal two weeks ago hoping to complement some of my writing with some artwork based on the book's lessons and ideas.
