This book is a celebration of the creative spirit through the practice of art journaling. The author's own colorful art journals serve as examples of how personal revelation and healing are cultivated through this process. The reader is guided through the steps including: accessing a quiet state of mind, translating inner feelings and visions to paper, employing a wide array of painting and collage techniques, and writing expressively to reap vibrant meaning from the images appearing in this spontaneous manner. The colorful images, materials, techniques, and written words combine for a rich feast for the imagination.
Susan Cornelis is a water media artist and popular workshop teacher who inspires students to access their personal imagery and take delight in the creative process.
