Product description

As art journaling grows in popularity (even attracting a new breed of scrapbookers who call themselves "life artists"), there is a movement afoot toward creating more authentic and personal journals. These journals are filled with not just attractive, well-composed pages, but pages that are filled with personal, meaningful content.True Vision is focused on ways to bring authenticity and meaning into one's art journaling. The book will examine themes and topics common to all, while offering activities and exercises to create rich meaningful content. Each chapter will highlight familiar subject areas such as life events, spirituality, childhood, and even an artist's favourite writings. Within each topic, readers are given guided activities and exercises for developing content, provided one or two artistic techniques, and are shown inspiring examples of work by a variety of talented art journal artists.

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 discusses the whys and hows of art journaling and the different things and events that can topics we can journal about more authentically and meaningfully.

The book includes interviews with several well-known art journalers and some tutorials although this isn't a how-to book on techniques. But plenty of journal pages from over 35 artists are showcased; the variety in their style, techniques and subject matter add to the depth of the book. Although I didn't learn very much from the book, I enjoyed reading it and loved the visuals. I think there's a lot in here for everyone, from beginners to advancer journalers.
