    The writing style got to me a lot more in this one, especially with the strained "revolution" theme the authors were trying to use. All of that made it nearly impossible to sort out the few actually useful and interesting tidbits.

    I can only wish I could create journal entries and "post-secret"-type personal epiphanies like the ones featured in this book. It's pretty inspiring just to flip through and has lots of good ideas on how to take a look at your life and figure out, for example, what the objects you are bidding on Ebay can tell you about your life at this moment... Good ideas, good pictures, all in all a great book to get your creative journaling juices flowin'.

    Super ideas. This isn't usually my journal style of choice bu even I am going to try some of these ideas. A few were positively revolutionary. Super ideas. This isn't usually my journal style of choice bu even I am going to try some of these ideas. A few were positively revolutionary.

    Just picked this up today, the authors are good friends and super talented gals.They inject so much of their crazy funny personality into their writing. They are sisters, and their goal is get everyone to art journal because in their opinion if you have a glue stick , tape a pen and paper you are probably good to get started. Their projects get more artful than that but they don't want anyone to be intimidated by the process, Thier last book VIsual Chronicals was great, they make you laugh, thin Just picked this up today, the authors are good friends and super talented gals.They inject so much of their crazy funny personality into their writing.

    Being a newbie to art journaling, I devoured this book from cover to cover. The ideas, tips and prompts included have helped me to find my own style and to enjoy visual journaling so much more than I ever would have without it. The sisters/authors are funny, knowledgeable and present the art form in an entertaining and informative way that would be great for the novice as well as the seasoned art journaler.

    10/4/08: To say this is a craft book, doesn't give a good feel for what it's like but if you enjoy keeping a journal and like to be creative, you MUST take a look at this book, that's all I can say for now. 10/13/08: In a way I've been doing a lot of this type of journaling for years just in different formats and I plan to do more in the future. 10/4/08: To say this is a craft book, doesn't give a good feel for what it's like but if you enjoy keeping a journal and like to be creative, you MUST take a look at this book, that's all I can say for now. 10/13/08: In a way I've been doing a lot of this type of journaling for years just in different formats and I plan to do more in the future.

    A fun and upbeat approach to art journaling with one of the best ideas I've ever come across: Fauxlaroids! That's right, making a fake Polaroid (basically a "frame" for whatever your heart desires), and they even have Fauxto Booth ones too. Gotta try it out! Also really liked the ideas for fake spray paint, taped text blocks, and the day-by-day calendar page.

    This was a decent read, and at least a somewhat fresh look at the process. Like my favorite writer about journaling, Alexandra Johnson, this book emphasizes that anything can become a journal. I thought the monthly or weekly visual calendar idea was especially good, and a great entry point for both newbies and long-timers alike.

    Sorry--I guess I had in my mind something different. I think the ideas are awesome but just not me. Maybe that's the point--about branching out. Neat ideas-- I hope to pick it up again in a couple months to see if I get re-inspired. Sorry--I guess I had in my mind something different. I think the ideas are awesome but just not me.

    This book had a lot of good tips for different effects in what is really scrapbooking. Though it seems to me the creators have a lot of angst and depression to work through still, it wasn't really an upbeat "journaling" experience.

    I want to love this book...I truly do...but I don't. I don't know if it's just not my style, or if there's something about the authors that rubs me wrong; however, this style is VERY popular, and the book is loaded with tips and techniques for scrapbooking and/or journaling.

    This book was published in 2007 so 11 years has passed. Therefore the techniques are not too exciting. The one tehcnique I did like is "Fauxto Booth." clever spelling. Author is a little snarky. never like that. fine line between sassy and snarky. This book was published in 2007 so 11 years has passed. Therefore the techniques are not too exciting.

    As far as idea books go, it was just OK - though I'm admittedly not a really big fan of idea books in the first place. There just wasn't anything NEW in the book, I felt...been there, done that.

    The book was interesting enough, but I just expected more prompts for art journaling on a more intimate level. Not just the simple, skimmig the surface kind of stuff.

    picked up this little goodie on my most recent trip. Just looks right up my alley, I'm looking forward to a new art book to poke through while I wait in the van for the girls. picked up this little goodie on my most recent trip.

    Even if you never make an art journal, it is fun to read this book. The authors have a quirky sense of humor.

    I loved a few of the ideas in this book, but for the most part they were things I had seen before. What I really enjoyed was the manner in which the book was written-with enthusiasm.

    This book has a lot of really great inspiration for making your journals/scrapbooks really come alive. The authors are witty and encourage readers to not feel constrained by scrapbooking "rules."

    Cool book. Some good ideas, unfortunately I have read others that may have done it better. If I had read this book before the others, I may have marked it higher.
