    I love Diane Culhane, and this lovely book is just like her: Bright, optimistic and accessible! A great gift for anyone wanting to try something new to unleash their creativity!

    Can't wait to take what I've learned from reading the projects in this book and applying it to ideas I have for my art journal. The ideas in this book are presented nicely and gradually increase in difficulty so that novices to pros can have their creativity sparked.

    This book has s an excellent “get started” book and specially for those who don’t think they can draw and paint. It gives value to any drawing and shows how to turn it into a personal piece of art. Good and easy instructional language. I also think it’s a good reference book for school teachers.

    The pictures are okay. The text is another one in a long list of "no skills, but trying real hard to feel good about myself". The pictures are okay. The text is another one in a long list of "no skills, but trying real hard to feel good about myself".

    Check it out. Very interesting drawing prompts for any skill level. This is a meditative and low pressure way to get started drawing. Truly, anyone can draw.

    Beautiful book, but not quite what I'm looking for. I'll stick to doodling, maybe work my way up to painting next year. Beautiful book, but not quite what I'm looking for. I'll stick to doodling, maybe work my way up to painting next year.
