This follow-up to the highly popular Decorated Page offers even more great ideas for beautifying a journal, more breathtaking photos to inspire, and more smart (and simple) ways to endow even the artistically timid with confidence. It simply brims with suggestions and instructions. Find out about the wealth of contemporary supplies, from papers and adhesives to paints, pens, and pastels. See how to create the actual journal from scratch, including a quick-to-do Three Minute Pamphlet. Use the tips for customizing a store-bought book that could use a little flair, such as adding pockets, inserting tabs, or adorning the cover. Build layered pages, take advantage of the creative potential of transparencies, and more. Sidebars and images of actual journals add to the fun. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
