I'm so jazzed about this amazing book by Linda Woods and Karen Dinino: "Journal Revolution: Rise Up & Create! Art Journals, Personal Manifestos and Other Artistic Insurrections". It is one of those I-give-you-permission-to-be-fabulous books that releases you from perfectionism and encourages you to create with your life. I have this gigantic art journal that I sort of tinker in. I practice, I doodle, I sketch but I don't really experiment - I don't get messy. It is as if I'm creating for some invisible audience - I'm totally confined by a fantasy that I should be able to journal like Teesha Moore or else I must keep it simple - you know - tinker. How can I learn if I'm not willing to make belly flop mistakes? I know I've posted a lot of my art journal work that is (lets be nice)...problematic. I absolutely use my journal to play but not to this degree. You've got to purchase this book and get at it girl! It is truly liberating!
