Product Description

Review

"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

Product Description

Art Journal Color! Art Journal Composition! Art Journal Freedom!

Color is all around us and we often find ourselves drawn to particular combinations or arrangements. But how can you effectively and artistically capture those eye-catching compositions in your art journal?

It's true, art journaling has no "rules" and is a safe place for free expression of your one-of-a-kind life. But knowledge is power and knowing the "rules" of color and composition gives you the freedom to use and break them willfully to create the effects you want. Dina shares these principles in a fun and approachable way with dozens upon dozens of unique journal pages to show you just some of the many possibilities.

Inside You Will Find:

  • Lessons and tips about composition and color including dominance and repetition, symmetry, contrast and the power of black and white.
  • 10 step-by-step technique demonstrations.
  • Dozens of color and design tips and page challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and instructional 20 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
Dina Wakley is an amazing artist and an amazing teacher too. This book is full of the most fabulous inspirational art journal pages, but is also helpful and instructional too. Dina teaches you all the rules, and then tells you can break them! This is a must-have for anyone interested in mixed-media art and/or art journaling.

5.0 out of 5 stars you need this book if you are an art journaller 16 May 2013
By Tracy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After buying so many books and taking so many classes on art journaling, looking for that perfect one, this one is it.

This is the book that teaches hat you need to learn to art in your own style and to art in the style of the author

Excellent. Cannot praise highly enough.

From the dozens of books I have bought this is the first time I have written a review. It would have been rude not too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin! 1 Jun 2013
By Sa Cain
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is my first art journaling book and I thought I would go direct to the inspirational Dina Wakely. I am very glad I did. The book is very well put together with concepts explained well and ideas and suggestions for trying projects. You feel that you can have a go at it whether you have an art background or just a basic craft background like me. I would suggest this book to anyone. All of Dina's pages are lovely too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 4 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant, for people like me who haven't gone to art college Dina explains the fundamentals of art and what makes it work ......or sometimes in my case 'not work' !!! Lol but at least with a more technical understand of things like composition it means that hopefully when my art does work it will be more of the norm and less of an accident !!! .....great book :0)
