Start your review of Creative Journal: The Art of Finding Yourself
This book was my first introduction to creative journaling and therapeutic art. I loved it. Now I'm no longer in love with this book, but we're still good friends. It's unique among the newer explosion of creative journal books because of it's simplicity. The only materials required are paper and felt pens, and the examples from other people's journals use only these materials. I'd recommend it to people interested in using prompts to inspire self exploration in journal form.
This book had a lot of great ideas for journaling to find yourself using words and drawings. I think most people would find many suggestions here to trigger thoughts which would take them places they might not have found without the author's little boost. On the negative side, the book is pretty touchy-feely and also, like so many self-help books, gives beaucoup exercises which would take a very long time to do.
This is a great introduction to those who are new to art journaling. As someone who's always done text journaling, I am exploring art journaling and adding visual elements to my journaling. I like how the author has divided the chapters. The visuals in the book are helpful. I plan to look into some of her other books.
