Review:

"Exciting mixed-media projects and sage advice on how we readers can find ways to artistically make it happen for us every single day. By the end of the book, you are left with a completed art journal where you have learned numerous techniques in a voice and style that is uniquely yours." – Jenny Doh, Crescendoh

"I'm in love with this book...everything about it." - Lesley Riley, host, Art & Soul Radio

"Love the book and I think you will too!" - Mark Lipinski, former Executive Editor of Quilter's Home magazine

"Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for some creative inspiration and motivation!" - Paint.Draw.Blend, the Pan Pastel blog

"You'd think this is really enough for a book - topics, inspiration, commentary, projects. But there is more to this book. There are gorgeous illustrations, aphorisms to encourage you, and a square size that makes dropping it in your tote bag and taking it anywhere possible." - QuinnCreative, Blogger

"This book is a beauty from cover to cover--that is what first struck me as I leafed through it. The art-filled pages drip with gorgeous color, interesting textures, striking imagery, and provide an appealing array of projects for various mediums. Pam is a master artist as well as an excellent teacher to boot." - Susan Tuttle Blog

"All of this great motivation and helpful instruction is in a beautiful, inspirational package that any level of artist is bound to appreciate." - TangledPatterns.com

"Pam's book makes me want to rush out and begin creating. That's always a good indication of whether or not I am inspired by a book! I highly recommend it." - Violet's Creative Juice, Blog
