    I just got this book, (because Borders is closing) yesterday. It is filled with terrific images and great ideas to create journals on a shoe-string or go hog wild at the hardwarestore or craft shop. Along with this book, I purchased, Book Arts, by Dorothy Simpson Krause. If you have ever wanted to make your own journal or are interested in creating books of any kind for any occasion or gift. Run to the bookstore and scoop this up.

      Thanks for sharing your recommendations, Marguerite. I really enjoy Journal Junkies Workshop too. I received it as a Christmas gift and it’s like a catalog (with how-to’s) of so many fun techniques and ideas for art journaling. It opens up so many creative possibilities to enjoy. Definitely a great reference!
