I consider myself an intermediate artist. I've drawn for years but am still learning. I feel as if a beginner or advanced artist could pick up Melanie's book and learn something new. Melanie takes you through everything you'd like to know about creating your own art journal.

I enjoy Melanie's work and her teaching. I've taken several classes with her, and her down-to-earth explanations make this a great book!
