Inside This Book(Learn More)
Where to begin? Art journals are something that we create for ourselves alone-not merely a self-indulgent activity, but something worthwhile, important, and vastly creative and self-revelatory. Read the first page

A must have book. If not to work from as a guide then to give you an insight to new ideas, and the great work that many artists are involved with.
This should get your juices going if you want to create great journal pages or looser artwork.
This book is the first book about paper crafts I ever bought, and even thought I've always been creative (writing, knitting, sewing and decorating stuff) it's not until I started to do collages in Perrella-style that I've really been feeling like a true artist! Itâ€™s so cool!
Before I started I read Lynne Perrellas book for about 2 weeks, browsing, looking, and wanting to try her collage techniques. This must be it! It is so marvellously fun and amazingly easy to do. Just start with some magazines clippings - and glue! Cheap, easy, fun and not to time-consuming. I love it!
The tips in this book are very clear and easy to follow, weather it's about adding different painted backgrounds, finding pictures to use or how to make a beautiful cover, this books gives you lots and lots of great information and tips. Nothing is a "must" everything is for fun and to learn to express yourself through colour and abstract art. Or not so abstract if you add your own thoughts, words, photos and paintings that you yourself can understand and appreciate.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to express themselves in journal/artistic form! If you havenâ€™t tried to tell your story with some collage and paint, now is the time. The pictures in this book are like sweet candy and the inspiration I've gotten is the best ever!
Thank you Lynne, I'm so looking forward to your next book!
The book is high quality and contains stunning examples of Art Journals - and Art Journals and Art Journals - which, when all said and done, is what it says on the front cover.
There are fine photographic examples of journal types, methods to "dress" your journals and suggestions for hand made books - however little in the way of techniques and materials required or used to attain such.
There are 4 double spread pages dedicated to a technique making use of "slide mounts" (as in photographic slides) outlining over 60 individual examples with a "life-size" image and supporting text. A good technique but it does seem to dominate the section somewhat.
If you're an artist and want to unleash your creativity into a regular journal, then this will, I'm sure, start you on a journey.
If you're a journal keeper, experienced or on the brink, then this may not be what you're looking for ... yet.

Absolutely love this book! Lots of interesting ideas from different artists and even those whose style has less interest for me personally, still have something to make you think. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Drusilla the Vampire
Not really what I was looking for. Bought it for my sister, who is an artist, and it was a little low-level. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Harriet Lloyd
