I got 2 new art books for Christmas 🙂
Paper Transformed By Julia Andrus and Wide Open: Inspiration and Techniques for Art Journaling on the Edge.
Paper Transformed includes lots of background and paper alteration ideas, most of them are old tried and trusted techniques but its a good book to have in your collection all the same.
Wide Open is a strange little thing but I love it all the same. You get a box of cards and a notebook, the cards double up as journalling prompts and ideas to get you journalling. A great idea for a sketchbook addict like myself. Im currently working on the first prompt out of the box so watch this space!
