There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There are lots of tips and insights with yummy and plentiful photos.
The projects are not limited to working in books so if you are interested in some 3-D work, there are some inspiring projects too.
This book is not a complete how-to book.
Not all of the images are explained of how to do them. I think you can figure most of them out if you have been journaling for a little while.
One of my favorite quotes that explains the reason behind this:
It's nice to get ideas from other artists, but keep in mind that you will draw the way you draw. Because that's your style. ~ Kathrin Jebsen-Marwedel
Mostly, I like to thumb through the book to get inspired.
That said the book is like all other "art" journal books out there : predictable. A bunch of artists show few selected pages from their work and explain how to reproduce them. Aside the fact that journaling should be a unique experience ,how many books on tecnique can be written on a subject? After all there are only so many thing you can do in a journal.
I was hoping for a showcase of works from people that keep a journal,with few words on why they journal,what they get from the process,maybe a short explanation of what the piece shown meant... that is what i am curious about. I only found few of that type of book,unless i purchased someone diary.
That been said the book is good for what it is. I recommend it if you like to reproduce the pictures shown.
