More About the Author

After a successful career climbing the corporate ladder in Silicon Valley, marketing high-tech start ups and brands like IBM and Animal Planet, Traci left the corporate world to pursue her passion for art. 2011 marks the 10-year anniversary of launching her creative business endeavor treiC designs. Prior to becoming a full-time artist, she worked as a graphic designer, event planner, marketing director, professional cheerleader, elementary art teacher, fashion designer, and web designer--to name just a few positions. Experiences that she gained through these positions, coupled with her innate drive to explore and create without boundaries, are what contribute to her success as a mixed media artist. Her passion for sharing art has led her on a worldwide tour, teaching mixed media workshops in handmade books, art journaling, collage, art marketing, and surface design.

Traci is the author of the bestselling book, Collage Unleashed, and is currently working on her next book, Doodles Unleashed which will be released January 2012. Her art has been featured in over 15 art/mixed media books and 40 craft magazines, including Somerset Studio, Altered Couture, cloth.paper.scissors, Art Journaling, Art Quilting Studio, Belle Armoire, and Craft. Her column "Creativity Unleashed" was featured in Somerset Studio Magazine. She has been a regular guest on DIY/HGTV Craft Lab. Her creative business includes designing licensed product lines, Collage Pauge adhesive, and {kolLAJ} paper crafts. She has developed business partnerships with numerous craft manufacturers, and has built her online presence solely on her own, designing every aspect of her brand and marketing strategy.

Well set out, easy to follow and a lot of inspiration, great resource ideas.
Trudy
I could not just leaf through it without wanting to do something and that I think says a lot for a book about art making.
Carin Winkelman
This book is definitely a "must have" and if you don't have "Collage Unleashed" do yourself a favor and buy them both!

I bought this book because I love Traci Bautista's work, I already have, of course, "Collage Unleashed" that I love and which will remain among my favorite books for a very long time, I am sure.
This time, it is not about collage and specifically making books, but more about Doodling as says the title. One more time, it is very well explained, the images are gorgeous and the work is well done.
My only concern is that, according to me, it is rather hard to explain and make the detail of someone's doodling. I mean, doodling is something we do instinctively. If we follow Traci's instructions, we are going to doodle as she does, we are going to follow her different steps. It is perfect for someone who has absolutely no idea about how he/she is supposed to doodle and really needs step by step explanations. But for someone who is already used to doodle by his/her own way, I am afraid some of these explanations could be confusing or redundant.
However, it is still interesting to use some of Traci's techniques and to see what kind of products she uses.
I think the best is to consider this book as a documentary about how Traci Bautista does doodle, and try to get inspired by her techniques. But then, I think doodling is something very personal, and each person must find his/her own way. It is almost as if we were reading a book about how to walk. For someone who had a brain stroke and who really needs a complete new education about how to walk, it can be very useful. But for most of people, who are used to walk, they will never be able to walk as Traci Bautista does. This is of course an image, a comparison, to explain my concern about this book.
Beside that, I however still think it is very interesting to have this book, and I certainly don't regret to have bought it, because I am curious about Traci Bautista's work.

After taking Traci's free on-line class with the same title, Doodles Unleashed, this book helped tie everything together. Traci is a great teacher and this book exemplifies her knack to teach others. Her art work is beautiful and with her help your art work can be as inspirational and creative as Traci's. This book is colorful and detailed and if doodles and mixed media are your forte', then pick up a copy. You will love it!!!

I'm a artist who loves bright colors and I like to fill a page to the brim. As much as I admire people who can work in more sedate colors and in a more minimalist way I just can't seem to do it myself. So it's no surprise that Traci Bautista's work is right up my alley.

I'm saying this up front, because I wouldn't be surprised if that at least partially affected my rating of her book Doodles Unleashed. I already own her other book Collage Unleashed and this book is pretty much done in a similar format. And the format is like this: ideas, ideas, ideas and then some more ideas. That's all.

This is not so much a book about how to form a doodle. Instead the book is like a collection of unlimited possibilities of all the things a person can do with doodles and the materials with which these doodles can be incorporated into art and journaling. For me this book is like a treasure trove full of visual stimulation and verbal inspiration, and since I love Traci's work it's also an abundance of eye candy.

I'm not sure though if this book is very well suited for beginners. Although Traci gives some step by step information, the content of this information is not very thorough. She assumes a lot of knowledge. One of the most extreme examples being the suggestions about working digitally. If you don't already know how to work with a program like photoshop those suggestions will mean nothing to you. And I think it is that way with more techniques. They are wonderful for people who have been working with mixed media for a while and don't need things explained to them anymore, but they might be a little too lacking in details for those who have never touched a paint brush before.

I knew I had to have this book after loving her first book "Collage Unleashed" and recently participating in a Strathmore Artists Workshop taught by Traci.Her shine, her style, and her doodles will have you inspired and smiling from cover to cover!! Heck, she had me at the introduction:).This book is for beginners to advanced -I love that her pages are sprinkled thru-out with "Watch It!" notes so you are able to go see a tutorial video online before or after reading about a particular technique. How cool is that??? This book is definitely a "must have" and if you don't have "Collage Unleashed" do yourself a favor and buy them both!

if this is your style, you may love the book, many do for what they say eye candy. To me it is too much like scribbling, and minimal technique. Doesnt even teach various doodles. I guess it depends if you like her style. Look inside the book and at the cover. Actually, the cover is nicer than most of her doodles!!. I do like her faces, but most of her paintings are not like that. Look at the other images, and her website for an idea of her style or if you like her style and want eye candy. The book and her classes are not much more, they both left me wanting sorry to say.
