I would LOVE to win this book!  I just recently took up art journaling and have even bound my own art journals :)  I think this book would help to guide my journal in the direction I want it to go (sometimes I have trouble in this area).  I would use it to give each of my journals a purpose!  Funny that the contest ends the day before my birthday!  Is it meant to be?  We shall see!

I would like to win this book because art journaling opens my creative flow and let's me switch between mediums and styles.

I would like to win this book because i want to learn new things from it.

What wonderful ideas this book seems to contain!  I too would love to win it - to inspire me as I attempt to create my own journal.  Thanks!!

I think it would expand my abilities to express myself through art !!

I hope I win. I need guidance, inspiration and I love the book

I would love to win the Book  so I could share the information with my sister. We love making Journals and could use some New Ideas.

I would love this book! I journal but could use some help with the basics!

Serendipity!  Today, I did my first painting into a small journal and will now look for inspiration to continue my life's journey through words, drawings, mixed media, creativity.  I think this book is just what I need to learn and grow into my artistic imagination.  

I'd love to win this book to help me get more ideas and expand my art journaling techniques.

I think it would expand my abilities to express myself through art !!

I'm currently obsessed with art journaling and I'd like to win this book so I can feed my obsession! Nom Nom!
