Amazon Reviews for Art Journal Courage
5 stars by Stella
Dina’s art is beautiful and the photographs were clear and colorful. Dina detailed (in words and photos) many different techniques she uses to create her journal pages. She also included a helpful chapter about how to get started with art journaling and provided numerous prompts that can be used as jumping off points for creating journal pages. This was one of the best and most inspiring books/tutorials about art journaling that I have seen.
