Art Journal Kickstarter

Yesterday I received my preview copy of Art Journal Kickstarter; pages and prompts to energize your art journals. Edited by Kristy Conlin. I received it as I'm featured in the book on page 42 with my journal page: Beat the Winter Blues. Well, receiving the book certainly did that! You can see more of the page here in a previous blog post.
It's always wonderful to have your work featured in a book. But this one is extra special as my main art form is quilting and that's what I have been doing for over 20 years now. In that time many of my quilts have been published in a wide variety of books and magazines but I'm a relative newcomer to art journalling and mixed media so it was amazing to be accepted into this book with one of my art journalling pages.

The book is not yet available but you can pre-order it from Amazon in the UK here. They show a release date of 30th January. I would say it of course,  but truly it's a lovely book published by North Light Books, with a wealth of illustrations. 151 Original art journal pages are included as well as dozens of journalling prompts, advice, inspiration, mixed media secrets and lots of techniques. I'm going to love working my way through it all and I'm very proud to find myself in among so many amazing artists.
