This book is for the creative journal writer on making one’s own journals using scrapbooking materials and techniques. Artist and teacher Huskamp features birds and plants as themes for paper collage on altered book covers and pages. Projects are similar to those in scrapbooking guides, but the emphasis on journaling may attract a new audience to the craft. -- Library Journal, February 15, 2010

Was disappointed in this book, it just didn't live up to the description or the images. It should be a how to sew book or how to glue book. Read morePublished on March 1, 2011 by Joan
