|This journal is full of prompts to give you|
a jumping off place when you are ready
to begin art journaling for the first time.
This journal has 52 projects to help you create a visual diary or collage journal. Some people also call them gluebooks when they are more cut and paste than pencil and paint.
Each page, or spread, has a prompt on it. All you have to do is find images to fit that prompt and glue them onto the page.
You can use photographs of your own, or hunt images down from other sources like the internet, or magazines. You can even doodle and draw your own responses if you prefer.
The pages are nice and thick so most inks will not bleed through. I wouldn't recommend using a lot of wet media, or even too much liquid glue though. Elmers X-Treme is my favorite glue stick for gluebooking.
Here are a few examples of the prompts you will find inside the book. (I took these before I started playing with the book. Too bashful to share my own images right now)
|Who would get an invitation to your ultimate dinner party?|
|Collage secret things on these pages and sew them shut.|
|Create your perfect view.|
This book is great for collage artists, beginning art journalers, and even for scrapbookers and smashbookers looking for a different way to smash.
Pick one up today for yourself, or as a gift.
