Rise up and CREATE! No borders, no boundaries: truth, journaled wherever you find it. Grab your mess kit - we're starting a Journal Revolution.

    Awesome book!

    The journal ideas in the book are great! I've been making drawings instead of using photos and the journal is turning out really personal. A lot of techniques and the book encourages expression. I love it!!

    ADD THIS ONE TO YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST!

    I didn't expect they could top VISUAL CHRONICLES - but they DID, and THEN SOME! This book will not disappoint you.... FIRST: These ladies are FUNNY. You will wish they were your BFFs. You will grin and laugh out loud. You will be inspired to get your words and creations on paper (or whatever surface you chose.) SECOND: For those who are OVERWHELMED by the amount of 'product' out there--this book is proof you can get started with items you likely already have around. 'Scratchy lines,' 'Stamping with Objects' and 'Taped Text Boxes' - you are going to want to try these NOW. THIRD: They invite you to contribute and share your creations...you are going to want to JOIN THEIR ARMY. For those of us 'crafters' who long to be 'artists' - these ladies embrace us all.

    Join the Revolution!

    This book gave me new ideas within the first five minutes of flipping through its art-filled pages! Rosie O'Donnell is right about these two sisters -- they can turn anyone into an artist and any thing into a journal page.
