I've been interested in art journaling and mixed media for quite some time and have never been able to organize myself enough to get started. The first look I got from bookishfirst.com gave me some great tips and actually really motiviated me to want to get started right away. The illistrations in the book are wonderful. I really enjoy the great ideas on using found items, paints, textiles, paper, photographs, rusty things and bits from memories on a vision board. The paragraphs on different mediums and ways to put them all together simple and inspiring. This book looks like a great ireminder to us that anything can be art and anyone can create art out of anything. This book is now officially on my wish list!
