Words, color, and collage come together in this energetic book that is filled with techniques and encouragement. Note that it is not called "Journal Crafting" or "Journal Perfection." No, Trout wants you to tell your inner critic to take a hike and just spill, without trying to make pretty words or pictures. The idea is to get everything out on the page, learning art techniques and something about yourself in the process. As the author says, "Tell yourself it's OK, it's just a journal page." It's the liberating approach Trout takes that makes this such an addictive how-to book. Journal Spilling is a great way to get started with mixed-media collage and creative journaling. It can also serve as a refreshing collection of prompts for a more experienced artist who needs to get out of a rut and not take herself too seriously.
