Meaning in life is made, not found.
In a raw-art journal, you don't need to know how to draw; you don't need to know how to write well. You don't need worry about messing up techniques you've never attempted before inside your raw-art journal. You just need to be you because raw art is you and it thrives on creative play, on experimentation and even on making mistakes.
Raw Art Journaling will teach you how to embrace your art, confront negative self-talk (a.k.a., your gremlin) and make meaning with your words and with your art. Inside Raw Art Journaling you'll discover how to:
- Write meaningful thoughts with a single sentence
- Create thought-provoking poems through found poetry
- Uncover images hidden in your photos
- Make personal meaning with the simplest of lines
- Finally feel free to make mistakes

Different and excellent for beginners and those who are experienced, too. This is a journaling book i will use again and again for its ideas and techniques.
What I took away from this book: * There's powerful potential in a single sentence * A few simple lines can say more than a page full of words * Writing in code is deliciously satisfying * Sometimes great meaning is found in happy accidents * My inner gremlin may not be silenced altogether, but she can be placed outside of my door, under the mat
I enjoyed the ideas presented very much. My only disappointment was that the formatting of some of the charts did not work well on the Nook.
I was expecting more art than journal; more drawing than writing, but there are some creative ideas.
