Yay! Another give-away–and I think you’re really going to like this one: Alternative Art Journals: Explore Innovative Approaches to Collecting Your Creativity, by Margaret Peot.

There are all kinds of ideas for non-book journals, from boxes to trays to tags to charms with instructions for making those and for a whole bunch of other techniques from how to age paper with lemon juice to how to create a cabinet of curiosities.
Here are some pages to give you an idea of what it’s all about:
