This book is for the creative journal writer on making one’s own journals using scrapbooking materials and techniques. Artist and teacher Huskamp features birds and plants as themes for paper collage on altered book covers and pages. Projects are similar to those in scrapbooking guides, but the emphasis on journaling may attract a new audience to the craft. -- Library Journal, February 15, 2010

Huskamp gives good information on gathering natural elements and preserving them, but also on using photographs and drawings or turning photographs into drawings. She shows some fun and interesting techniques and the projects shown vary from single page pieces to journals to assemblage. She uses a lot of fabric in her work too. This is very much a Huskamp book, in that you have to like her work to like this book, or you should not get it. Some books show the works of other artists too, but this is not one of those.
The book is definitely worth while for nature loving artists and it's full of Huskamps beautiful art work, includig a gallery at the end. It's not the best mixed media book out there, but much better than some. This is not a book for those who want a general look into art making or mixed media, but I suppose the title already discloses that.
A nice book to add to your collection, but not an essential one. I liked it though.
I'm loving the Projects section; in particular the Gathering Journal, a bookarts project which employs pockets. Very nice! Tracie's assemblage pieces are also very inspiring. These would make great "memory" pieces for yourself or as a gift. Entrancing book, lovely photos. If you love nature and journaling this would be an excellent book for you.
