This one didn't really work for me. It covers a lot of ground - from drawing and painting to carving rubber stamps to extremely detailed instructions for dyeing fabric. And it felt like the journal bit was more of an afterthought than anything else.

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! Melanie includes some of the things she taught us in class, but also expands on them, as there is only so much you can pick up in a 6-hour class. It's a great companion and I'm working my way through it. Thanks, Melly, for writing it and sharing it with us!
