Trash to Treasures
The Elemental Journal by Tammy Kushnir gives you a step by step for 15 fun projects. A book of artful expression from items cast aside. It is very interesting to see the elements used in different projects. The book shares five chapters of differently used elements for projects. (wood, plastic, paper, fabric, and metal) Kushnir asks where do you find your inspiration? Inspiration gives you reasons to create. Through out this book you will find pictures and how to that will give you the inspiration to dig through your trash, go outdoors and search and sit down and create a project.Was this review helpful?

Since I really enjoy any books dealing with crafts, scrapbooking, and decorating, I knew I would enjoy The Elemental Journal by Tammy Kushnir. The craft book looks at different elements that can be found around your house, outside, or at any location. These items range from wood and paper to plastic and fabric. Each chapter has 4 different types of journals to make, and contains a list of materials and tools necessary to make the particular journal. Then, step by step pictures, which are illustrated, lay out how the particular project is made.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If for nothing more than the photos, I loved this book. Sometimes I find myself drawn to artsy books, but unable to recreate the crafts within the book. This is not the case with The Elemental Journal. The items required to make the journals can be found anywhere, and the instructions clearly lay out how the project is made.
