    1. I have kept written journals for than 20 years, but at some point I realized that I wanted my journals to contain images and color I always had added copies of photographs to my journals but I wanted to learn to make art in my books Art that make me remember my feelings at the time completely when I went back to review my journal books years later.I have been doing visual art journaling for several years now Oddly enough I still keep a private written journal but my visual albums are just as [...]


    2. Often when words fail, we can best express ourselves through color, line, shapes and images, and when we cannot find the right images, words take over and express our thoughts, feelings and ideas p 17 There is no one right way to keep a visual journal Every visual journalist must find his or her own way through the journal, discovering the techniques and methods that work best Whatever the methods, the visual journal is a remarkable place for self expression and self discovery You simply need to [...]


    3. If you are brand new to the world of visual or artistic journaling and the aesthetic of this book appeals to you this is not a bad place to start on your journey into image based journaling The photos and layout of the book are clear so if the authors style pushes your buttons, regardless of your experience in the world of art journals, you may find the book a good catalyst for your own journaling On the other hand, if you ve read any other books on the topic or are well versed in a variety of a [...]


    4. Much More Than Just an Art Journaling BookThese guys are geniuses artistically, it s obvious so nuff said It s their teaching skills that make them rock stars I learned about basic drawing and painting techniques through this book than many other specific how to manuals A specific example that makes my heart sing I ve read three maybe four books on watercolours and this is the first time I ve seen dip your water colour pencil in the water HALLELUJAH


    5. This is a really basic book on art journaling So basic in fact, that it probably should have been marketed to kids I also didn t care for the aesthetic of the book even the art journal pages throughout the book are very basic don t seem to push any kind of interesting boundaries I m giving an extra star for dedicating the book to Dan Eldon, who is one of my art journaling heroes, but I really can t recommend this book.


    6. I really loved this I haven t been very good about journaling this summer, and it was a good motivator I ve been wondering for a long time how to get into art journaling, and this gave me a lot of ideas on how to make the switch from straight writing to being creative



    7. I really liked this book Lots of ideas with out saying You must do it this way of a gentle guideline And really easy to understand.






    8. Excellent book, highly recommend I ve been going through journaling and mixed media books as so far this is one of my favorites It has great pictures and details, good information and instructions on how to do many types of techniques I think both those interested in art journaling and mixed media should check out this book and see what they can use in their creative processes There were some techniques I already knew and lots of good ideas for me to try as well.


    9. Provides demonstrations of step by step techniques and ideas for creating your own art journal It provides encouragement and interesting example pages from personal art journals Rather than prescribe specific projects to recreate, this book gives readers ideas, tools, techniques, and examples to start their own pages and make them interesting and personal.


    10. Over the past two months, I ve been reading through this book a bit at a time Visual journals really fascinate me for a number of reasons I ve always gravitated towards collage aesthetics, but merging those images and found objects with journaling seems even promising and rewarding Journal Junkies is a great introduction to this concept and there are a lot of great tips on how to begin and keep a visual journal The authors introduce a wide variety of techniques, ranging from image transfers to [...]


    11. I have always collected paper scraps, tidbits of this and that, doodles on napkins, words written down, notes from books or movies For me, these were called scrapbooks, but the terminology has changed and now scrapbooks are monumental undertakings of photographs arranged strategically on a page with lots of expensive embellishments I have discovered that my oldschool scrapbooks are now visual journals But what I want to try my hand at are art journals , where I actually draw or doodle onto pages [...]


    12. A quick read but potent visual smorgasbord, this manual is a sudden jolt into the world of visual journaling It s not a manual of how to do, but a TO do reference book full of ideas and triggers to get you journalling on a viSuAl bAsIs I am both a writer and a visual artist, so this was like caffeinated candy for me It really is visual ammunition for the art addict.


    13. The dedication was a strong part of the book The basics on techniques and the open ended prompts for writing were worthwhile There was a gentle push to get you moving, some consistent examples, and a few advanced techniques with some tips along the way Its not a ultimate tutorial, but it will be helpful.


    14. It s hard tonratebthis book It s not a bad book if it is the first book you ve read on journaling The problem is that everything in the book is stuff I ve already seen in several other books and blogs There was really nothing new However, if you are just getting into art journaling this is a great book on the basics.


    15. As a beginner to art journaling, this was exactly what I was looking for as a place to begin The authors demystified the process for me and gave me tools to get started I also am grateful they honored Dan Eldon in this book I ve been enjoying learning about his life and art.


    16. This was my monthly book I borrowed from the Kindle Library It s pretty basic, but has some good suggestions for getting started on an art journal Even though I already knew quite a few of the techniques, I enjoyed it and am using some of the exercises as starting points for journal pages.


    17. Although there was nothing in this book that was truly new for me, I loved the presentation of it, and the simple descriptions of the various techniques were very easy to understand The visuals were great too.


    18. I think this book jams a lot into it to help someone new to art journaling or some one who has hit a road block in their process it gives good technique instructions, supply lists, ideas for travel kits, workspace and writing prompts.


    19. An awesome starter guide to keeping an on going visual journal I expected a bit , as I already knew the techniques they taught, but nonetheless it gave me the kick in the pants I needed to get on this project.


    20. There is point that books on visual journals become redundant Nevertheless, this is a good go to book on the topic which is written in plain speak about materials.






    21. Visual journaling book by two guys Easy step by step for different techniques, several journal examples and ideas.
