Overview

"Step by step, the reader is brought to art journaling in a method that makes even a novice want to pick up a paint brush and begin making art that expresses your soul."—Diana Gonzalez, Brooklyn Crafting Examiner

"Back when I was the managing editor of Art Journaling, I remember when Traci Bunkers' journals arrived on my desk. I spent hours pouring through them, wondering to myself, 'How does she do this?' With Traci’s new book, The Art Journal Workshop, you get to see exactly how."—Christine Olivarez, Somerset Studio

Many people want to express themselves through visual journaling, but are stuck or intimidated with how to get started, what to write, or how to move beyond gluing down a few images or putting some paint on the paper.

With beautiful illustrations, The Art Journal Workshop breaks down the entire working process of journaling with step-by-step photos and instructions from start to finish. You'll learn how to use different media such as paint, photographs, and collage, while following journaling prompts and exercises to help you dig deeper and enrich the journaling process and experience. Traci Bunkers discusses the benefits of visual journaling, and walks you through battling a creative funk when you're feeling down or uninspired.

Additionally, The Art Journal Workshop comes with a DVD-ROM to play on yor PC or Mac which shows the author creating six visual journal pages from the book, start to finish, through time-lapse video clips. This visual guide enhances the information in the book, showing her work progress in a way that goes beyond what can be captured in still photographs or through text.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Artist Journal Workshop, Bunkers, Tracie (Author) May 2011. 128 p. Quayside/Quarry, paperback, $24.99. (9781592536849). 745.593.

Kansas artist Bunkers’ second book is much akin to Alice’s fall down the rabbit hole. We wonder,
initially, where we’re going when Bunkers starts with a psychological caveat about the art of visual
journaling. Even more confounding is that her process, complete with call-to-action exercises and prompts,
is not a real methodology to follow. Rather, it’s a series of how-to instructions exploring different
emotions. Confusion aside, Bunkers provides the usual upfront information about tools and materials as
well as useful narratives to help avoid visual blockages. To get unstuck, for instance, she advises cutting
out magazine words and pictures or figuring out what’s being avoided. Along the way, her very personal
layout entertains, as do her examples. Tips, such as to take photos up-close and to save removed pages,
inform novices and pros alike. An accompanying DVD takes readers through her instructions, but take
care, for it’s all too easy in using this kind of crafts book to slavishly copy the samples without
customizing or starting afresh. - Booklist, May 2011

Meet the Author

Traci Bunkers is a passionate and quirky self-employed mixed-media and journal artist living in Lawrence, Kansas. “I love rusty things, glitter glue, old books to cut up and cheap cameras. I'm smiling when my hands are dirty with paint or when I've altered a camera or something to use as a printing tool. It means I'm doing what I love—making art and doing things with my hands. Lucky for me, I do what I love for a living.” Even though the DIY and repurposing life styles are now in vogue, for this self-proclaimed love child of MacGyver, reusing and repurposing have always been her way of life as a creative way to problem solve and make ends meet. Through her one-woman business Bonkers Handmade Originals, she sells her nifty creations such as hand-dyed spinning fibers and yarns, original rubber stamps, handmade books, knits and original artwork. She also creates an artzine called Tub Legs, designs knitwear, and is a knitting, spinning, and crochet technical editor. She has been teaching workshops across the US since the early 90s and her visual journal pages, artwork, and knit designs have been published in numerous books and magazines.

    Not formatted well for Nook!

    I found this book in the store and was interested. I decided to purchase it for my Nook after reviewing it in the store. It freezes when I use my Nook app on my iPad. I can see it on my Nook Color but the print is very small - it s like a photo of the page. I try to zoom in but it is too big and I can't move it around quickly. It takes a considerable amount of time to get each page to be readable! I only read one or two pages because it is so frustrating to mess with each time!

    YEP! IT IS SCREWY

    I tried the sample and it was balking just to get to another page which is too bad because it looks like an interesting book. I do like that you can expand the text and artwork for better viewing. Hey Nook!!! FIX THIS PLEASE what waste.
