More than a year ago Jenny Doh asked me to contribute to an art journaling book that she was curating. Of course I said, "Yes!!!" I had the chance to take a peek at some of the rough pages of the book when I was at Jenny's house last January. And I was blown away! It's an awesome book. I have, therefore, been waiting and waiting and waiting for it to come out! And now it is finally available for sale! (I just got my copy in the mail!)
The book is called Journal It. Here's the official description:
Book arts, journaling, and collage come together in Journal It!, where 19 mixed-media artists showcase their signature techniques, tips, and creativity boosters. The featured work ranges from lettering expert Jill K. Berry's beautifully calligraphied travel journals to Jeannette Sclar's whimsical gardening books, and the techniques include everything from toner-based transfer to stitching with fabric and paper. With over 200 inspirational photos to guide them, even beginners can create works of art right from the start.
And did you notice? That's my artwork on the top of the cover! It's also the cover page inside the book! Eek!
I'm so proud and excited!
You can take a quick peek inside the book in this video:
I'm thinking of making the book this month's Book Club selection and creating something inspired by one of the eighteen other amazing artists in the book. What do you think? Is that weird to do Book Club with a book I'm in? I can't decide.
Let me know what you think!
