Our Review

Offering an inside look at the pages of dozens of artist's scrapbooks and journals, Katherine Duncan Aimone's Mixed-Media Journals aims to help you creatively chronicle your life.

Taking a no-holds-barred approach to scrapbooking, explore the art of visual storytelling and learn how to create a journal of your life, using a wide range of materials including flowers, photographs, craft supplies, ribbons, paper, trinkets, embellishments and found objects. The book contains dozens of examples and tutorials, including a house shaped book with photos of the artist's first home, a dictionary turned into a scrapbook that's filled with clippings from the artist's college days and a Dios De La Muerte memory box.

Create yourself a journal that's stylish, unique and personalized for you and your family to treasure for years to come.
