TT - The Decorated Journal

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!

There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library and add your post to Learning All the Time Favourite Resource Link Up

This week ...

While not strictly a book devoted to Nature Journaling Gwen's book is well worth investing in for anyone interrested in any form of journaling. There is more I would like to say about this journal but will need to update this post when I return from South Africa :o)

I love this book and it's one of my favourites at the moment.  It has inspired me to Nature Journal with Sir N and make a travel journal while in South Africa for the next two months.  

Book Description Amazon: 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.

Available from: Book Depository and Amazon. For a more in depth review pop on over to A Penchant for Paper.
