"Diehn opens up a new dimension-the artist's vision of visual memories. Consider this a superscript above all other entries."--Booklist
These simple, unintimidating decorating techniques reveal all the wonderful options for making a blank book into a journal that is visually meaningful and deeply personal. You can color wash paper; rubber stamp designs; add secret pockets and tuck mementoes inside. Insert tabs for fast and easy reference, or for purely visual appeal. Include "windows" between pages to enhance the sense of curiosity and discovery. Attach sentimental bits of ephemera--rose petals from flowers your sweetheart gave you for Valentine's Day or a ticket stub from a play you saw one unforgettable evening. Finally, see exactly how to "build" ten different pages that perfectly marry form and content, complete with a photo from the author's own journal illustrating the beauty of each approach.
