Perfect for us non-artists,

This review is from: Raw Art Journaling (Paperback)
This book is full of projects that are fun, easy to try, and don't need a closet full of special materials and tools. I don't really "do art" and don't have anything like "art supplies", but even I can find things like index cards, scissors, glue, a marker, and a pen. Who knew what you could do on a notebook page with that stuff? Not me, at least. Or maybe I did but forgot!
The best thing about this book is you can open it to any page and see something you can try right away and turn out something better than you expected. It's very visual, the ideas and projects mostly take just a two-page spread, and it's organized just the way you need -- if you need materials, there's a list. If you need something to start with, there are pictures and examples galore.
I usually feel put off by books about art projects because they show results that are beautiful but need long practice, a studio full of specialized stuff, and weeks of dedication. THESE projects I can actually do with the things already available, reasonable amounts of time, and, in my case, little or no practice since Mrs. Johnson's second grade class.
