Illuminate Your Story has a lovely cream colored cover with a simple yet elegant embossed design. There is a nice texture to it. The binding is almost like a grosgrain ribbon in texture and there is an elastic pen loop which is a very nice touch. There is also an elastic band that can be used to either keep the journal closed or to mark a specific page. The flyleaf is elegant. Other than the introduction pages, they are bright white. There are journaling pages that are ruled and have quotes from the Bible and various people ranging from Abraham Lincoln to Eddie Cantor. A large percentage of the book is dedicated to showing how to create illuminated letters, which are those large, beautiful capital letters you see in older, heavily embellished books. There are six different styles that are described and used. They are clever and whimsical and elaborate and everything in between. I consider this more for instruction and practice rather than for use as an everyday journal as the number of journaling pages is so small compared to the lettering pages. With the price of art books, this is a great book to get to learn how to do illuminated letters. I am pleased with this and look forward to experimenting with the concepts. Read with a Preview at AmongTheReads.net I was given a copy of this book for free. I was not required to give a favorable review nor was any money received for this review.

This is an instructional for illuminated letters. You know those beautiful drop caps that start a story in the old books. This is for each letter of the alphabet with five step illustrations, breaking down the illustrated letter. Then there is space for you to develop your own or copy theirs. After that there is a journaling space that starts with a beautiful quote from different sources. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher.

The Ellie Claire Art Journals make for unique gift ideas this Christmas. These journals are made of high quality paper and binding with exquisite attention to detail, including pen loops on the binder and elastic band closures. A great gift for the art lover on your list. As with the other journals, the quality is excellent. This journal comes with an elastic band to keep it closed and a band on the cover for your pen. There is space to take sermon notes or use this as a prayer journal. However, the majority of this journal is focused on creating fancy lettering. There are step-by-step instructions that lead you through the process. As a result, for gift-giving, this journal is very specific in nature. I’m not artistic, so I found the journal beautiful but impractical. My daughter loved it. I received a free copy of this book from the author/publisher in order to provide my honest and fair opinion of the book.

This is such a wonderful journal because it teaches you step by step how to create beautiful illuminated letters that will enhance your Bible journaling or any type of artwork where you will use lettering. I loved the instructions because they were so easy to follow. I actually took this one to my doctor office appointments to work on while waiting and it was great! I was able to follow each step and learned how to make several gorgeous letters that I will definitely use in my new Illustrating Bible. The paper quality is wonderful! I was able to use my permanent black fine liner in the book and did not see any shadowing on the next page. I used my art makers as well as my watercolor markers in this book and the paper held up really well with all these things. I started out using pencil to learn the letters then went over them with the black fine liner and then used my art and watercolor markers to enhance the letters with color. I love how I was able to make each one my own yet they looks so beautiful because of the great instruction! There are also some blank pages for practice or for actually journaling. I absolutely LOVE this journal and am having so much fun working through the letters then using what I've learned in my artwork. It's especially special for my Bible! I highly recommend this journal and give it 5 out of 5 stars. This journal was provided to me by Worthy Publishing. I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading, drawing and writing in this journal.

What I liked about this book was how you are walked through different lettering and ways to flourish the letters of the alphabet. I will admit it was a bit difficult because I am not overly artistic but I wish I was. But I enjoyed trying. A copy of this book was given to me. All opinions are my own.
