    I already knew I was going to like this book when I saw it elsew

    I already knew I was going to like this book when I saw it elsewhere. Well, when it arrived I couldn't put it down. I'm getting ready to art journal and this book not only will help with my images but has given me even more ideas. The pages are filled with ideas and the photos are great.
