I Love this book! I just got it and just had to share how much this book fills what I want to express.
Non judgmental creative work and experimenting with different mediums, even sewing! Hey! why not!
This book is a good buy for people in search of free expression!

Good job Diana Trout!

For beginners and "seasoned" art jounalists Oct. 2 2009
By D. Purser - Published on
Format: Paperback
I came across this book just the other day and could not put it down...WOW! I have been art journaling for years and am always looking a new ways to express myself. This book is not only great for beginners just starting out, but also for the "seasoned" art jounalist. I enjoy the way the author writes as it seems like she is talking to you directly with great encouragement and humour. I like alot of the techniques and I have come up with my own jumping off point to take it where I want it to go, making whatever I create my own. I have alot of art technique books and this one ranks right at the top for me.

A creativity companion for the long haul Oct. 16 2009
By Ever the Artist - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've had this wonderful book in hand for only a few weeks, but it's already unlocked so many ideas and gotten my work flowing again. I look forward to spending oodles more time with its kindly, steady, positive tone of encouragement. I expect to find it useful whether or not I keep an on-going art journal; there are so many wonderful techniques to play with, and each exploration is likely to lead to multiple new and fruitful trails. I think it will be valuable to artists all along the spectrum of experience, from those just discovering a direction, to more developed artists looking to jumpstart out of creative stalls.

A Great Start to Journaling Sept. 13 2009
By Amy Donohue - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I have always been interested in starting a journal, I never did....until I recently received "Journal Spilling"! Of course I love the tone of the book and the art-work - it makes it a fun and easy read. But....I really love how the author motivated me to start (with some very easy steps) and then moves on to some fun and crafty ideas to keep me going. I also think this would be a fun gift for someone who already journals but would like to add some additional elements into their work.

Free to be you and me Jan. 8 2010
By Zoe - Published on
Format: Paperback
This refreshing, engaging book written in the experienced voice of its author is filled with the book's subtitle" Free expression" exercises, each skillfully presented and immediately putting the journal maker at ease.

It is a book that motivates both the long-term journal keepers, like myself, and the novice, to set up and gather a few supplies and tools, anywhere, and just do it in its opening chapter, Warming Up. In fact, it fosters just what the title suggests, a way in which to create an organic, self defined journal just spilling onto a page from a box of crayons, a watercolour palette or a bottle of ink.

Judgment free, the chapters build on each other, and erase the terror often associated with trying to achieve the perfect page with precious materials. Instead, the Censor takes back stage while the Creator relaxes, explores and produces a seemingly effortless personal journal page(s). The book's chapter, "Taming the Critic" does some of the work, but it is the book in its entirety that grants the reader total permission to move beyond that "do not trespass" sign artists often experience when facing that blank page.

My cacophony of Critics are shrill but midpoint in reading the book, I found myself, "spilling" here, there and in my specially designated "Artistic Attempts " journal--an altered calendar resurfaced with gesso without a moment's hesitation.

Too often, I've weighed myself down with pensive pondering and few art pages. The fact that I was able to venture so freely and spontaneously into a journal spill is testament to the writer's skill and the books value.

Journal Spilling is the "free to be you and me " answer to creating an art journal.

The Best on Art Journaling Dec 12 2009
By Barbara - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have practically every book out there on art journaling and when I bought Journal Spilling I expected it to be more of the same that each of the others generally has to offer. Was I ever wrong! Diana Trout has really taken art journaling a step further for me and given me more to reach for and really stretch myself, artistically and soulfully. The techniques are not the same things you find every where else and her words of encouragement throughout really give you that boost to go just a little further and try just a little more. I would definitely say this is the best on the subject for beginners and advanced art journalists alike.
