Meaning in life is made, not found.In a raw-art journal, you don't need to know how to draw; you don't need to know how to write well. Inside your raw-art journal, you don't need worry about messing up techniques you've never attempted before. You just need to be you because raw art is you, and it thrives on creative play, on experimentation and even on making mistakes. Raw Art Journaling will teach you how to embrace your art, confront negative self-talk (a.k.a., your gremlin) and make meaning with your words and with your art. Inside Raw Art Journaling you'll discover how to: Write meaningful thoughts with a single sentence; Create thought-provoking poems through found poetry; Uncover images hidden in your photos; Make personal meaning with the simplest of lines; Finally feel free to make mistakes; Use clever techniques to keep your secrets secret. Quiet your gremlin, grab your permission slip (it's on page 19) and start making meaning in your own raw-art journal today.

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.
