I have, however, been seized with the desire to buy watercolors and gel pens immediately. This book makes me feel like I could add color and imagery to my notebooks. View all 3 comments.

I might like this more than I did the first time I read it three years ago! Original review: Very good overview of art journaling techniques, complete with prompts at the end. I liked this book enough that I've ordered a used copy for myself. View all 4 comments. Apr 29, JayeL rated it really liked it Shelves: , creativity , quilt. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Art journaling is a technique tool?? Part of the problem for me is the mess. I thought I didn't like to make messes. What I found was that I don't like to make messes that I have to clean up!
The Purpose Journal showed me that under the right circumstances, I can really use this technique in a creative and satisfying way. Journal Spilling by Diana Trout is a really encouraging and pleasant book to read. I read it and thought about it, but didn't try any of the projects that are integrated into the various chapters.
The first thing that I liked was in the Welcome message. First, "Welcome" is much friendlier than "preface" or "introduction. I have long refused to label myself an artist - for better or for worse. Like Wayne Thiebaud, I have decided to let history decide my artistic fate and concentrate on making. If history ignores me, so be it.
Thus, Trout's comment really hit home.
The author also has a sense of humor, which is infused throughout the book. On page 9, she says " I once did a 'highly scientific' experiment to check the lightfastness of Portfolios alongside Caran d'Ache. They both held up remarkably well when exposed to sunlight for six months! It really made me smile. Trout writes about things I have never heard of, but that I find very useful. This is a great concept that addresses the biggest obstacle between you and your journal: Fear. It also helped me greatly with time issues.
If you break down a job or hope or dream , step by step it seems less scary and overwelming. The books title, Journal Spilling, seemed a little confusing to me until I read the section on the generosity and hospitality of pouring sake. By creating that analogy, Diana gave me a picture in my mind to understand as I read the book. Throughout the book, the author talks about keeping moving.
At one point she refers to it as aerobics for creativity. The idea is to not think to much and keep moving creatively; to keep your hand moving. Some examples Ms. Trout gives are to draw boxes good for writing in later! She also gives some advice on what to say to your mind if it starts to interrupt which mine does all the time!!
This was another thing that really made me smile. I think that most people who make beauty have an inner critic.
A very revealing and interesting section was about her inner critic. She names him, tells us how he looks and sounds. I thought this was a great technique, because things that you name are much less scary than the unknown.
In a way I feel like I have been doing this with all of the sewn accessories I have been making: journal covers, pencil rolls, tote bags. They are mind sorbet, in a way, but they are also, for ME , small art. For me, small art is valuable as well. She follows that up by saying "I pick up my brushes and pens in the odd spaces of time that occur in the life, gently coaxing the art out into the light.
Trout uses the various sections to convey techniques through her various projects. At the same time, she drops little pearls of wisdom in the introduction to each section. In the introduction, she writes "Respect the power of the words you write and believe that writing them will fix them into your mind and, maybe, with some attention, some of your dreams will become a reality.
Perhaps the power of the word, which is so important to me, can help me identify my goals and make them a reality. I think, in general, creativity books are more interesting to look at. I have seen a lot of well designed, well laid out and visually appealing books of late. This book is not exception.
Not only are the photos appealing, the step outs clear, but the page layouts fit the theme of the book.
