Journal Revolution!

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!


  1. So, gonna get this book. I am sold. This right up my alley:) I am totally trying to embrace the imperfection is perfection mentality in art and scrapbooking. I can't wait to see your stuff inspired by this.

  2. I am so glad you are enjoying the book! Welcome to the Art Army! We're so happy to have you!
