Raw Art Journaling brings self-expression through the act of art journaling to its most basic, "raw" and easiest level ever. Beginning and seasoned artists and writers often come up against blocks when prompted to write or draw something original. This obstacle is addressed with exercises such as creating found poetry, the Words as Tarot Exercise and a wide range of abstract, doodle-like design suggestions--just to name a few. Chapters cover surfaces to journal on; what to write and how to incorporate words-as-art into journaling; transferring the exercises into a variety of media including photography and textiles; and creating basic backgrounds with paint, tape, stitching and more.

I LOVED creating my own little "gremlin" or procrastination guru that I can banish when I want to get to my work. Very good way to give voice to the "you can't" voice in my head and then find a way to say "I CAN" instead. Great tips interspersed throughout, even though I'm predominantly a writer vs. visual artist. Tips for anyone of any ability, from word journalling to art journalling. I highly recommend thumbing through this to find what you can take away from it yourself.

The best part of this book was the instructions on how to make your own custom journals - even one made out of index cards.

The section on "found poetry" or words cut from magazines and organized randomly, spoke to me: "First, the journey begins with more fun for you. Finally, have a different road trip." -- Cyndi Pfeiffer. As we're getting prepared to travel to Yellowstone and my foot is in a walking boot, I am prepared to look at the next ten days in a whole new way -- with camera, colored pencils and journals by my side! Inspiring book I'm taking with me.
