Annette Richards, July 6, 2011 (view all comments by Annette Richards)
I'd love to keep a journal, draw and paint, but I am intimidated by white paper. I'm afraid that I will spoil the page whatever medium I choose.
"Journal Spilling," which takes its name from the Japanese tradition of pouring out sake generously by overflowing each cup, encourages creativity and self-expression. I really like the projects in the book and with the shopping list and techniques illustrated I'm ready to face those blank journal pages. I also think that most of these projects could be done on full size art papers and displayed outside of a journal. The theme of the book is very theraputic with projects with titles like "Lean into Trust" and "Taming the Critic." A little art therapy is just what I need!
