This book is for the creative journal writer on making one’s own journals using scrapbooking materials and techniques. Artist and teacher Huskamp features birds and plants as themes for paper collage on altered book covers and pages.

Library Journal
These are two books for the creative journal writer on making one's own journals using scrapbooking materials and techniques. Artist and teacher Huskamp features birds and plants as themes for paper collage on altered book covers and pages. Koch (Vintage Collage-Works: Artful Ideas with Antique Ephemera) combines paper ephemera with drawing and calligraphy to create handmade journals. Projects in both are similar to those in scrapbooking guides, but the emphasis on journaling may attract a new audience to the craft.
