Quinn McDonald of Quinn Creative says:
“Right up front, I have to say I am a sucker for books that encourage people to bring out their inner artist, give ‘em a  handful of art supplies and then let them feel successful with simple instructions that work well. And this is a book that does that. I love the breath of “simple” here.”
Michelle Reuss of Lost Coast Post says:
“…let me just say that I love this book! I also need to say that even in the glut of art technique books on the market, I think there are few geared towards advanced art journalers.  Personally, I’m not interested in shallow eye candy books or books that trudge through oft-trudged material (i.e. how to use an old credit card to create backgrounds.) I am looking for books that challenge me, that offer a different approach.”
