With 52 projects, from simple tricks, like making your own washi tape, to more ambitious projects, like crafting a custom planner, you’ll soon have the best-looking to-do list around.

Author Renee Day will take you on an artistic adventure as you take on each new task and become an expert on amazing DIY ideas! You'll learn to work with watercolors, acrylic paint, brush pens, and much more as you personalize your stuff, making things uniquely you.

Going beyond basic tools, this stunning book offers tips, tricks, and creative ways to transform your notebook into a treasured life companion, including:

• Ornamental lettering

• Colorful calendars
• Decorative headers
• Customized productivity lists
• Inspiring artwork
• Creative future logs

Creative Journaling is a lovely resource whether you are new to journaling or an old-hand looking for fresh ideas. The opening section follows a Bullet Journal-style method and the suggested layouts there are fairly standard if you are already journaling in this manner. However, the segment does offer good tips for newbies. I found the latter sections of greater interest personally. I had never heard of Junk Journaling before, and the ideas in the Mixed Media and Travel Journal sections were inspiring. This is a good book for journaling enthusiasts both new and experienced.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
