Publisher’s synopsis
The Complete Decorated Journal (Beautiful Journals Inside & Out)
Now two of Gwen Diehn's most successful books, The Decorated Page and The Decorated Journal, are bound together in this comprehensive and inspiring volume that teaches readers how to create both engaging journals and journal pages. She explores a variety of easy-to-use materials and offers an unmatched collection of great ideas and techniques, from innovative layouts (mandalas, diagonals, cutouts, and grids) to simple bookbindings (ranging from The Three-Minute Pamphlet to The Two-Hour Extremely Beautiful, Useful, and Sturdy Journal). You'll learn how to build layered pages, take advantage of the creative potential of transparencies, and more. Sidebars highlight specific genres, such as pillow books, nature journals, and illuminated manuscripts. New material includes additional techniques, a project where you'll create a unique journal from a butter box, and 13 artist profiles along with galleries of their work.
