Okay, all of you art journalers and journalers-to-be! I’ve got a giveaway for you, the result of my having purchased (unknowingly) two copies of Gwen Diehn’s The Complete Decorated Journal: A Compendium of Journaling Techniques. (Click on this link, and you can look inside the book.) As wonderful as this book is, I need only one copy.

The Completed Decorated Journal is actually two-books-in-one: The Decorated Journal and The Decorated Page, plus bonus content. It is divided up into sections that tell you all about journaling materials and how to use them, how art journalists perceive the world (from Leonardo da Vinci to the Australian Aboriginal culture), 10 different approaches to journaling content, and alternative types of journals, such as the pamphlet and double pamphlet, altered book, blank book, and box book. Throughout the book you’ll discover interesting artist profiles. Filled with 240 pages of art journaling inspiration, this is one book you’ll want on your shelf.

If you’re interested in being entered in a random drawing for Gwen Diehn’s The Complete Decorated Journal, tell me about one of your favorite journaling techniques in the comments below. Or, if you are just getting started, tell me what you hope art journaling will do for you. Make sure you include your e-mail so that I can get in touch with you if you’re the lucky recipient of this book. I will announce the winner next week Friday, April 26.
