an amazing journal for all ages! 9 July 2010
By S. Kira Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looking at the preview for this book, I didn't know what to expect; many books on journaling include some sort of materials section at the beginning, and I was looking for something more. Wanting to learn to doodle better myself, I ordered a copy and jumped for joy when it arrived.

When it came out of the package, I was surprised! It's a great size -- small enough to fit in a purse or backpack -- and is THICK.

Past the recommended materials, there are pages and pages of prompts, ideas, and collaged backgrounds for you to work on. The prompts are diverse, and many have "tips" for how you can expand and enhance your journaling. They range from ways to use materials to cutting "out a photo of a friend -- paste it on the page and start dooodling in the Mehndi style around it," to "What do I want to be? Happy, adventurous, fun? Either write these words or find them in magazines and paste them onto the page. Doodle around them."

The pages are great for girls just discovering who they are. There are bits for favorite jewelry, your favorite and least favorite classes, a school makeover, and "I can't wait to be an adult because..." But there are deeper prompts as well. Dawn Sokol has girls exploring who they are and want to be, what they value, who they look up to, what quotes guide them. Working through this doodle diary will help girls grow and foster strong self-esteem and figure out who they are.

If you're an adult, you, too, can work through this diary! Many of the prompts will take you back to childhood, where you can re-examine what you loved (and didn't love!) back then, bringing those school years into clear focus. And many are fun prompts -- Dawn has you exploring new materials and gives you tips on how to use them in different ways. Journal about an embarrassing moment, what you said today. Use junk mail or combine words. What is on your iPod? What inspires you?

'Doodle Diary: Art Journaling for Girls' is up there with Keri Smith's 'Wreck This Journal' for the pure creative genius of its writer; there is passion and fun in this book that you can't help but giggle with glee when you pick it up and start playing on its pages.

Creativity Abounds! 12 July 2010
By Kimberly Santini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm an artist and journalling teacher - and this book has tickled me on both levels. The prompts are perfect jumping points for all sorts of creative thought and the pages are delightfully designed, yet not so perfect/prescious that they scare a child off from marking on them/journalling. I put it immediately on my journalling bibliography that I hand out to my student's parents - and based on the kids' reactions at today's class, it'll soon be in each of their backpacks! Furthermore, my daughter begged me to give her my copy. Solution? I bought another one!! Wonderful book, Dawn - and thank you!!

Love it! Only one small problem... 8 Mar. 2013
By lilyj2000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love my new doodle diary! It is a birthday present. I'm 12 going on 13 and love to doodle in notebooks so I like it. There is only one small problem. It's so stiff and hard to open to write in. It may loosen but we'll see. Thanks for reading! ;)

Perfect for on the go art moments! 21 Sept. 2010
By Kelly Kilmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Who says that doodling has to be just for kids, or even just for girls? Dawn Sokol's new book, Doodle Diary is the perfect size book for your on the go art moments. It's fresh. It's colorful. It's inspiring. It's inexpensive. It's a fun little book that you can toss in your purse with a small handful of favorite pens and work on it while you are in line at the post office, at lunch, waiting for a movie to start, etc... I know what my nieces will be receiving for Christmas!

In the meantime, my copy is in my purse along with a tiny set of $2 gel pens from Dick Blick. Guess who's been having fun with art on the go? My plan is to use the book now as is and then cut it up later to reuse it later in my regular art journal!

Lush-esque 15 Oct. 2010
By Jennifer Louden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just got a copy and can't wait to share it with my daughter. We're often feel like creating together but then don't know quite what to do - and this is going to give us hours of delish creating. What looks like a deceptively simple book - like Keri Smith's - leads you deeper into the creative process and being a strong girl. Love it!
