You guys know I've been all about journals and scrapbooking, memory keeping and crafting. In fact recently I've found myself posting smash book ideas to my crafting pinterest board. So when this Collage this Journal arrived for review, I just about jumped out of my skin. I was so excited.
Created by Elenor Shakespeare, Collage this Journal is 112 pages of journal and collaging challenges sure to inspire your creativity. This book is beautifully bound with nice covers and thick pages perfect for a variety of mediums. Acrylics, ink, watercolor, markers... this book is made to be altered without bleeding or deteriorating. Each page/layout includes a prompt as well as layered illustrations in muted tones to compliment any style. Some of the prompts include:
- Fill the scales with things that hold particular weight or significance in your life
- Who would get an invitation to your ultimate dinner party?
- Who or what makes your heart sing?
- Create falling leaf shapes of things you want to leave behind
- What hand have you been dealt?
If you like to journal, create, or are just looking into smash books and altering, this would be a great book to add to your shelf. It's fun, whimsical, and very nice quality. This journal becomes available on March 15th and is an excellent value for the price.
