Not the best of the Art Journal books,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Journal Spilling: Mixed-Media Techniques for Free Expression (Paperback)
I've got most of the books available about art journaling and this is not among my favourites because the journal pages shown are not my taste at all. Yes, I am a fan of the 'messy' layered style of journaling, but these just look like a childlike scribbled mess. If I made these pages myself I would bin them, so I do not find the book inspiring!
On the plus side it does include lots of ideas and techniques, all laid out in a user-friendly lively style, so for practical reference it's great.
I'm baffled by the 5 star reviews - I guess other folks must find Diana Trout's style more appealing than I do.
