The Summary, according to Amazon.com:

This irresistibly interactive journal is filled with dozens of clever ideas for recording your life, such as “Make balloons out of photos from special and happy occasions” or  “Fill the genie’s lamp with wishes.” The author/illustrator’s wonderfully layered photo-illustration montages invite readers to mix media, too, and make this keepsake truly their own.

Review:

Cover – 4.5/5 Dragons

Both clean and whimsical, the front cover boasts a classically creative design with just a hint of whimsy. The back cover pushes that whimsical element just a smidgen more, which is perfect. The blurb on the k is well written and perfectly descriptive on what the journal is about, without being over the top.

Interior – 5/5 Dragons

The idea of this journal is that you use whatever supplies you want in order to create collages in response to each new prompt.

For example, the very first prompt is a framed, blank page that asks you to collage a self-portrait…using images of yourself.

Another prompt asks you to redesign the covers of your favorite book, while still another asks that you write, draw, or collage images of who or what makes you laugh.

There are 52 such prompts, each with whimsical, almost water colored pages that provide a creative muse for the completion of your ‘journey’s’ art.

So be creative, be free, and ENJOY!

Overall Rating 5/5 Dragons (stars)!
