Free Ebook Featuring my Article: Travel Journals, Using Maps as a Starting Point

Interweave Press and Cloth Paper Scissors are offering a free download of their ebook on art journaling.


Art journaling is a way to express yourself through writing and art at the same time. 
This creative process pulls together a variety of materials to create mixed-media art.

You can buy pre-made journals and fill them with your doodles and designs or craft 
your own custom journals to record everything from your travels to your art technique 
experiments to your innermost thoughts.
In short, an art journal is whatever you want it to be. But you have to start someplace, 
so we've created this free eBook, 
Art Journal Techniques: How to Make a Travel Journal, a Handmade Journal, plus 
Art Journaling Ideas.

In this free eBook you'll get art journaling tips, including how to make a travel journal 

from maps, how to make an art journal in stages, and how to choose the right 
tools for your art journal adventures.

I am so excited about this book. I've set a goal to learn to create and use an art journal this year. I've kept journals for years but never included art in them! I'm ready to make some changes this year! Thank you!

Lavender Dreamer! You are so lucky to be embarking on this new art adventure! Teri, let me know how you like it, Ruca thanks! Timaree, can't wait to hear what you think.... I am on my way to Patagonia, Chile and trying to journal along my route.
