Art Journal Color! Art Journal Composition! Art Journal Freedom!

Color is all around us and we often find ourselves drawn to particular combinations or arrangements. But how can you effectively and artistically capture those eye-catching compositions in your art journal?

It's true, art journaling has no "rules" and is a safe place for free expression of your one-of-a-kind life. But knowledge is power and knowing the "rules" of color and composition gives you the freedom to use and break them willfully to create the effects you want. Dina shares these principles in a fun and approachable way with dozens upon dozens of unique journal pages to show you just some of the many possibilities.

Inside You Will Find:

   • Lessons and tips about composition and color including dominance and repetition, symmetry, contrast and the power of black and white.
   • 10 step-by-step technique demonstrations.
   • Dozens of color and design tips and page challenges.

"Just a note: Art Journal Freedom is not just for art journalers: I think anyone in the mixed media and art/craft arena will find something of value." --Honore, The Queen's Inkling

"Bottom line? This book is amazing and I can't recommend it enough!! It truly is a very big workshop/class in book form and I'm very inspired by it and will be working my way through each challenge and idea. You could get it just for the eye candy and loads of Dina's pages shown inside - but it really is so much more than just a pretty book." --May Flaum
