Book Notes: Mixed Media Techniques for Art Journaling

Take a look inside Mixed Media Techniques for Art Journaling: A Workbook of Collage, Transfers and More edited by Kristy Conlin, in this edition of book notes.

This workbook features more than 25 step-by-step demonstrations for techniques like inkblot drawing, creating collaborative journals and making your art journals. These projects were carefully selected from some of our favorite North Light books including:

  • Collage Unleashed by Traci Bautista
  • Creative Awakenings by Sheri Gaynor
  • Journal Fodder 365 by the Journal Fodder Junkies (Eric M. Scott and David R. Modler)
  • Image Transfer Workshop by Darlene Olivia McElroy and Sandra Duran Wilson
  • And many more.

The dozens of lightly textured blank pages and prompts allow you to use the workbook as your journal for experimenting with new materials and tools.

    The book would be perfect for me. I am always looking for new techniques to try out. I especially like the step by step instructions.

  3. SherryJo says:

    I am a bit confused about this book. I expected art journaling right in the book.
    Do I need extra papers for several of the ex resizes to glue over the pages or can I practice the techniques right on the pages of the book?

      Hi SherryJo,
      Inside this book are instructional, step-by-step techniques for art journaling, plus blank pages where you can practice the techniques. For some of the projects, adding a layer of gesso to the pages might be beneficial. There are also some project suggestions for using these techniques in other projects beyond the art journal, but you can still plan or practice inside this workbook! Does that help?
