I wanted to pass along a bunch of free eBooks I came across at Cloth Paper Scissors. Each one gives you new avenues of artistic exploration--whether it is unusual processes or new media.
So many of us keep sketchbooks to make quick drawings, work
through compositional possibilities, and just practice mark-making. An art
journal is exactly what it sounds like, a bound book of artistry that can take
all of your exploration to the next level. Many mixed media artists create art
journals that are stunning works of art in and of themselves. They can build around
a single theme or vary throughout the book, with each page taking on a new
concept or idea.
