"Just a note: Art Journal Freedom is not just for art journalers: I think anyone in the mixed media and art/craft arena will find something of value." --Honore, The Queen's Inkling
"Bottom line? This book is amazing and I can't recommend it enough!! It truly is a very big workshop/class in book form and I'm very inspired by it and will be working my way through each challenge and idea. You could get it just for the eye candy and loads of Dina's pages shown inside - but it really is so much more than just a pretty book." --May Flaum

This is a superb book. The artwork alone is worth the cover price - I know I will look through this book again and again for inspiration and technique tips. Dina has a fantastic way of explaining techniques and she uses both new and old products, including easy to get items from the local hardware and craft stores. The colours are vivid and engaging - it's actually difficult to focus on reading Dina's text as the journal pages really draw your eye! Dina gives a great overview of materials she uses and there are several excellent techniques included - step by step ideas that I have not seen widely used before. It is clear a lot of hard work has gone into this book and the results are quite spectacular.
Congratulations Dina on a wonderful book. In this age of saturation in the art journal book market, you have written one which stands out amongst some very good quality books. I would highly recommend it to both new and advanced art journalists. I hope this isn't the last we see of you in the book market.
Instead of telling you what you "should" and "shouldn't" do, or telling you there ARE no rules, Dina Wakley simply shares her own approaches to art journaling. Everything from materials to technique to approaches to composition and color is included in this book. I even enjoyed and found inspiration in the "getting started/materials" section, which I normally consider a waste of ink in most art technique books.
The one thing to note, though, is that Art Journal Freedom is comprised ENTIRELY of Wakley's work. So if you are looking for a variety of examples in different styles, you may want to check out Dina's blog and see some of her pages so you know what the book is filled with.
But if you love Dina's style and the effortless way she seems to be able to combine different elements and come out with these brilliant, beautiful pages, then you will find SO much inspiration and eye-candy in this book. It's a must for any art journal library.
