I bought and read this book to see if any of the featured artists could interest me in any new outlooks, and for me I found some. What I got out of this book is that Ludwig wrote this in order to try to capture the what and why of creating authentic art journaling for these artists. Again, the title tells everything, and being the dense boo-bob that I am, I immediately saw that...right after I finished the book, lol.

I was very affected by what I discovered from and about featured artist Katie Ke

I checked this book out from the library, and I've enjoyed it so much, I might need to buy a copy. This was a great into to art journaling for me. Being a writer, not a visual artist, I found the prompts effective and inspiring. The focus is not technical (how to reproduce someone else's style) but liberating (how to discover one's own style). Lots of useful "extras" throughout.

I appreciated the blurbs from several journalers along with their example pages, but the formatting of this book seemed too bland for my taste. Still, it has lots of prompts and exercises to try.

This book provides an indepth look at how we can art journal with more passion and intent. LK Ludwig gives great advice and suggestions on how we can get started, get new ideas and boost our creativity as we journal about things that are important to us. On nearly every page, she includes interesting and often refreshing prompts to get the reader thinking about life, personal artistic preferences, techniques and sometimes just thinking out of the box.

With approachable and insightful writing, she

I enjoyed the visuals of this book - LK's nature journals are intriguing eye candy and made me want to make one (or several) of my own. But the instructions are sketchy at best, and there were very few techniques in there that I'd be able to do with the sparse and undetailed instructions throughout the book.

A worthwhile read. The ideas in the book spark curiosity and the artwork is lovely. There are a lot of inventive concepts and the book is fun to read. There is a focus on mixed media and altered books rather than purely art journal pages.

I really like the quality of this book and how they do not tell you how to art journal, but how to discover your own way of art journaling! Nice sharp pictures and good detail.

A worthwhile well-illustrated book about art journaling, with detailed explanations of visual techniques used.
