I own and have read several journaling books, and this is one of my favorites. Many styles and techniques are showcased - lovely for those who are looking to expand their horizons. This is the perfect book for those who like an idea to get them started, but may want to run with their own creativity once they begin. [Also perfect if you like/need a step by step how-to for the examples inside.] I'd recommend for any skill level. There is something for everyone - lovely, lovely book.

The pictures are big and bold. There's something for everyone...watercolors, photography, stitching, print, etc. It's a nice book. The market seems to be flooded with books on journaling, since it is so popular at the moment, and this one has a nice format and a good mix of ideas.

19 art journaling artists give their points of view on why they art journal. They all have different perspectives and ways of approaching the process.

There are lots of tips and insights with yummy and plentiful photos.

The projects are not limited to working in books so if you are interested in some 3-D work, there are some inspiring projects too.

This book is not a complete how-to book.

Not all of the images are explained of how to do them. I think you can figure most of them out if you have been journaling for a little while.

One of my favorite quotes that explains the reason behind this:

It's nice to get ideas from other artists, but keep in mind that you will draw the way you draw. Because that's your style. ~ Kathrin Jebsen-Marwedel

Mostly, I like to thumb through the book to get inspired.

Format: Paperback
This book offers the perspective of nineteen mixed media artists of how to journal in many different, yet very effective and interesting ways. Lots of mediums are used to express thoughts, ideas and feelings, including watercolors and found objects. In addition, interesting thoughts are posted throughout, including from Carolyn Sewell, who says that "sketching assists her while note taking. My pen is my hearing aid, I cant listen without it." There are tips for when you are stuck and have "journaling block". One writer suggests conquering fear of things not turning out well as you like, you can remind yourself its just a piece of paper.

Each contributor shows how they journal via their own style, and they explain that there are many reasons for journaling ranging from a creative outlet to a visual diary. One of the journalists said they notice more about their life when they journal and I've thought a lot about that and what a positive exercise it is. Your journal can be basically a microcosm of your world. I found myself wishing my ancestors had done more journaling to pass on to their loved ones and I also realized how important it was for me to do for my own progeny.

Format: Paperback
In this lovely book 19 art journalers share their thoughts on journaling, some of their techniques and of course their journal pages. This books includes people like Julie Fei Fan Balzer, Debra Cooper, Jill K. Berry, Roben Marie Smith and Zom Osborne.

The styles are quite diverse and that makes this book a joy to look through. There's plenty of inspiration for everyone who's the least bit interested in art journaling. It would be hard not to find at least one style that speaks to you.

As for techniques the artists show, the book seems more directed at beginners than experienced journalers, they are mostly quite simple and straightforward. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if you are an experienced art journaler or mixed media artist you may not want to buy this book if you want to learn something new or revolutionary.

I think the same can be said for what the artists are saying. If you've read a couple of art journaling books or visit a lot of art journal blogs you've probably heard it all before. And yet...I couldn't help be inspired by this mixed group of people (there were even a couple of men involved, which is rare for art journaling books), simply because they show so many different styles and ideas. I like books that have more than one artist in them, because it proves the point that there is not one way to journal and also that there is no wrong way to journal.

The layout is quite beautiful too, but it does have a drawback. Every chapter (every new artist) is featured in a different colour lettering. This looks really nice, but certain colours are harder to read than others, especially in artificial light.
