Many people want to express themselves through visual journaling, but are stuck or intimidated with how to get started, what to write, or how to move beyond gluing down a few images or putting some paint on the paper.
With beautiful illustrations, The Art Journal Workshop breaks down the entire working process of journaling with step-by-step photos and instructions from start to finish. You’ll learn how to use different media such as paint, photographs, and collage, while following journaling prompts and exercises to help you dig deeper and enrich the journaling process and experience. Traci Bunkers discusses the benefits of visual journaling, and walks you through battling a creative funk when you’re feeling down or uninspired.
Additionally, The Art Journal Workshop provides exclusive access to online videos that show the author creating six visual journal pages from the book, start to finish, through time-lapse video clips. This visual guide enhances the information in the book, showing her work progress in a way that goes beyond what can be captured in still photographs or through text.
Visual Journalling has always been an interest of mine.
It enables me to be creative and expressive and is a hobby that can be picked up and put down at whim. I have several on the go at any one time and depending on my mood I can be inventive and as individual as I choose.
This book gives ideas and inspiration, and shows how from start to finish, an art journal can be a mindful and artistic exercise.
You do not need to be a fantastic artist to design a journal, words and pictures can be collaged, drawn and even photographs can be used. Glitter, fabric, leaves, nothing is out of bounds, all you need is your imagination.
Traci Bunkers gives sound advice and ideas for everyone to be able to construct such a book, it can be a travel journal, a memory book or even a gift to someone.
This quirky work book is brilliant, and a must have for anyone who needs a helping hand to begin. It is highly original and very inspiring.
What is important is that it is fun and meaningful to you.
