Oh dear I am so seriously late in Passing The Book. My excuses are Christmas and... well, I just loved the book!
Don't know what the heck I'm on about? Check out Sian's blog here, then come back and if you fancy being the next receiver of this fabulous book - leave me a comment saying so below. In a weeks time, Sunday 23rd, I'll do a random generator thingy to decide who it goes to next...
The book on offer is Creative Wildfire by L.K Ludwig. An Introduction to Art Journalling - Basics and Beyond.
Now, if you are remotely interested in Art Journalling, learning new techniques, learning how to bind your own books from scratch... this book is for you. It's got something for everyone - from the beginner art journaller to the more experienced. You can see it's influences in my recent January journal page and in my messy paint pot - see, you don't have to use the techniques just for journalling. They can be taken, adapted, have your own twist put on and used on anything!
I can see this as a book that would be one to come back to again and again and again and... you get the picture. I only scratched the surface of some of the techniques - It's definitely going on my 'to buy' list. Chock full of inspiring journals from some amazingly talented artists but not presented in such a way as to be daunting. More as "look at this, don't you love it? Well, this is how you do it."
Have I whetted your appetite enough? Then drop me a comment, the book could be on it's way to you next to read, enjoy, have your mojo sparked before you do a post helping it on it's merry way again :) I'm happy to post internationally.
Thanks for stopping by!
