Wow —- “creatively enrich your life . . .” That is one pretty tall order, but I truly believe it is not empty hype. As announced here, Journal Your Way is Lark’s new-in-paper edition of a previous volume in the Live & Learn series.
This new publication by Gwen Diehn shows how to design and construct a blank book that will fulfill your personal vision of a handmade journal, and in so doing, will inspire you to fill those pages with honest and intimate thoughts, warm memories, meaningful memorabilia, funny sketches, doodles, and creative drawings. In this way, journaling becomes a personal adventure that you can’t wait to begin and continue.
And while I’m talking about the adventure of journaling, let me offer to expand the experience—at a cost you’re going to like. Lark is presenting the chance to win not one, but THREE books that will enhance your journaling insight and bookmaking abilities.
Here’s how to enter for a chance to win all three books: leave a one-sentence journal entry in the comments to this blog post. For instance, my comment might be something like, “Today I wrote a terrific blog article on the Lark Crafts website that I hope will generate a high number of responses.” Leave your comment/entry by 11:59 EST on Sunday, September 22nd. One winner will be selected at random from among all eligible entries and contacted Monday, September 23rd.
The lucky winner of the three journaling books, selected by random drawing, is Meredith Helgeson. Congratulations, Meredith!
The Complete Decorated Journal is an outstanding source for ideas and techniques to produce bindings and layouts as well as unique-looking pages, while Journal It! includes a number of mixed-media embellishments for creating your journal. Together, along with Journal Your Way, these three volumes present a master class about creative bookmaking and self-expression through journaling.
Good luck and happy journaling!
