"Exciting mixed-media projects and sage advice on how we readers can find ways to artistically make it happen for us every single day. By the end of the book, you are left with a completed art journal where you have learned numerous techniques in a voice and style that is uniquely yours." – Jenny Doh, Crescendoh
"I'm in love with this book...everything about it." - Lesley Riley, host, Art & Soul Radio
"Love the book and I think you will too!" - Mark Lipinski, former Executive Editor of Quilter's Home magazine
"Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for some creative inspiration and motivation!" - Paint.Draw.Blend, the Pan Pastel blog
"You'd think this is really enough for a book - topics, inspiration, commentary, projects. But there is more to this book. There are gorgeous illustrations, aphorisms to encourage you, and a square size that makes dropping it in your tote bag and taking it anywhere possible." - QuinnCreative, Blogger
"This book is a beauty from cover to cover--that is what first struck me as I leafed through it. The art-filled pages drip with gorgeous color, interesting textures, striking imagery, and provide an appealing array of projects for various mediums. Pam is a master artist as well as an excellent teacher to boot." - Susan Tuttle Blog
"All of this great motivation and helpful instruction is in a beautiful, inspirational package that any level of artist is bound to appreciate." - TangledPatterns.com
"Pam's book makes me want to rush out and begin creating. That's always a good indication of whether or not I am inspired by a book! I highly recommend it." - Violet's Creative Juice, Blog

If you wish you were an "artist", I highly recommend you purchase this book. Your perception of your dream becoming a reality just might change. Create, Be fearless and make a mess!
Even more rare is to find a book I will cover a second time for a book club! A group of 11 of us met for 7 weeks to go through the process of the "7 day journal." As an added challenge we spent only 1 hour per week covering the techniques. What an amazing experience! At the end of the 7 sessions we had a lush art journal ready to continue layering and living in.
Thank you Pam for an amazing reference book. This is a staple in my library and I refer to it often.
So curl up with a cup of hot tea, a comfortable place to read and visit with a very talented and sharing friend. You won't want to put it down unless you are ready to get into the studio and begin your own painting journey.
The size of it makes you want to reach out and touch it.
I took it along to my acrylic painting class that I run at Rotorua Arts Village in New Zealand and everyone wanted to borrow it.
But I wouldn't let it out of my sight. I told them to buy their own copy.
I have noticed some negative reviews about it online and I want to assure people that I find them unwarranted. I am an experienced professional artist/teacher and for the purpose of exploring mixed media techniques this book has plenty to challenge me.
It is beautifully produced.
You can also google the author Pam Carricker and watch her free videos which also adds to the experience.
Pam is attractive and talented and it shows in the production of this book.
Buy it you'll love it.
If she produces another one I will get it.
Regards Janet Keen from New Zealand [...]
