I keep a journal. I have since I was 10. As I got older, and being artistically inclined, I began to add "fodder" to my journals. Within the last few years, I discovered the art journal, and though I don't put art on all of my pages, I am interested in adding flourishes, etc to my normal written entries. I bought their first book, Journal Junkies Workshop because I liked that they seemed to have a different perspective on the art journal. They seem a little disdainful (as another reviewer pointed out) of other popular art journalers who always use layer after layer of paint and include antique-y photos with dunce caps and wings. True, those elements seem to be favored by a lot of artists for some reason. But if THAT is what speaks to those people, then they should do it.

I was firstly disappointed that the "365" and "daily doses of inspiration" didn't mean that there were actually 365 writing/journaling/art prompts. They divide the book in 12 sections, meant to be done throughout a year, but then they give you only 4 basic prompts, that, one would assume, you are supposed to ruminate over for 7 whole days. I think they mention that there are places on the internet that list journal prompts, but couldn't they have just come up with a big list anyway, to make the title more true?

I liked the prompts, I will possibly work some into my journal, but their techniques that they show were all pretty much covered already in their other book.

I really love the look of the cover. And one last note: Neither of these guys must have kids for them to suggest you leave your journal out and open on your desk. If I were to do that, my kids would grab the nearest crayons and scissors; goodbye journal.

I was really excited to receive this book because I am a big fan of the first book by Eric and David - The Journal Junkies Workshop.

The wait was certainly worth it - there are so many ideas for writing and art in this book, it would be suitable for both adults and especially teenagers (the fact these guys are school teachers really comes through - in a good way).

What I really like it that the book lacks pretension - it's not high end, fine art and doesn't pretend to be. It is using accessible materials in a way that is easy to understand. If you're someone who wants step-by-step instruction, there is some of that, but it also encourages readers to do their own thing and make their journals personal and about them. Those are the books I love the best - books that encourage students to do their own art, in their own style and doesn't judge.

I personally think the prompts are fantastic too - but I would encourage people to use the 'Look Inside" function, see some samples and then, if you choose to buy the book, really embrace the opportunity to do something unique to themselves. It is THEN they'll really benefit from this fun book.

This is a nice book with some good ideas. The format is interesting and the instructions clear and easy to follow. The large illustrated pages are great, wish there were more of them. Didn't buy the book for the prompts but it's loaded with them, so for people who are looking for direction or inspiration, this book may be very helpful. The book encourages artists to use what they have on hand...bits of this and that, scraps and recycled material. It's a book you might want to check out.

I really liked this book. I wasn't sure about it, and was happy when I saw it at the library, so I put it on reserve. I wasn't sure if this was a book I would refer to again. But...I want this for my shelves now because I don't want to give it back!

I have seen somewhere, someone mention that there were not 365 prompts, but I think that was taking using a narrow sense of "prompt", and the authors don't actually say there is 365 prompts but ideas, and because I have too much time on my hands clearly (!) I went through and roughly counted and there is that many ideas. But more than that, I think that there is more than enough here to occupy one for a year if they really want to dive into the book. There are so many directions presented, it is like one of those pick-a-path books (do they still have those??).

There was a lot I liked. The book is split into 12 sections covering aspects of your life in a broader sense, from your personal mythologies, to dealing with the unexpected, seeking solitude and then connection, dealing with fears and mistakes, dreams and awareness. I really liked the way it was set out. For each chapter there are four writing prompts and then different drawing and painting techniques and ideas for taking it further. There are also sections on observations and ideas for taking your journal out and about and extending your comfort zone.

I know that some of the techniques and ideas were a little basic, for instance one of the ideas was to use gel medium as an adhesive, but I think that makes it good for the absolute beginner. However, it is not the techniques that blew me away, although there were some things that I thought were incredibly clever and I am going to try.
