Alternative Art Journals Book Giveaway
The editors at F + W media were kind enough to send me a review copy of Alternative Art Journals: Explore Innovative Approaches to Collecting Your Creativity, by Margaret Peot. I anxiously awaited the arrival of the book and it came today. I love art journals (as you may know) and this book could be a great addition to your resource library. If you click on the link above you can "search inside the book" at amazon. There are several "out of the book" type art journals with step-by-step directions, including a box art journal, postcard journal, and scroll. I like her ideas about using old black and white photographs and her inkblot images are intriguing. When looking at her website I discovered she is also the author of Inkblot: Drip, Splat and Squish Your Way to Creativity, which I have seen used by other art teachers out in blogland.
The publishers said I could give away a copy of the book to one lucky reader!
If you would like a chance to win a copy of the book, leave a comment on this post and answer this question: Do you teach about art journals/artist books in your classes?
