Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Think that you don't have time or imagination to create a real art journal? Then it's time to accept the challenge of Pam Carriker's 30-day multi-media challenge. This artfully planned interactive program opens your eyes to seven central elements of art: color; texture; shape; space; depth; mark making; and shading. Its worksheets, lessons, and tips guide you even as you gain self-confidence in achieving results you never imagined.

From the Publisher

"Even from the outset, this book captures the reader's attention. Rather than ruminating on how to be inspired, it launches straight into a short tutorial on how to make a simple but effective journal of your own using watercolour paper and adhesive canvas paper. It is to the point and perfect for warding off procrastination about how to get started. I found this part of the book made such sense that I made one immediately. It took me a couple of minutes tearing, folding, sticking and I was there. You start with something so simple you can't talk yourself out of it and then you have the perfect canvas to start looking at each lesson." --Workshop on the Web
