Journal Sparks Review

You don't have to be a kid to love Journal SparksFire Up Your Creativity with Spontaneous Art, Wild Writing, and Inventive Thinking by Emily K. Neuburger. It's a mixed media, artistic adventure! Collect your favorite art supplies and ideally a blank journal. With 60 imaginative and engaging art prompts it's bound to inspire a creative journaling habit. As shown below, the activities run the gamut - from coloring, to cutting and pasting, drawing and writing, folding and more. It comes with 10 pages of vibrantly colored collage paper, 3 pages of stickers, 1 page of pop-out speech bubbles and an envelope template. I'm not surprised it's won a bunch of awards. Its pages are amusing, delightful and motivational. I treated myself to a new journal and watercolor paint set while examining Journal Sparks. If you wonder what I'm up to, I'll be reveling in its pages! Storey Publishing released the 164 page paperback on April 18, 2017. Get your copy below!

  8. This would definitely spark my creativity. My eye caught "tiny poems". I used to write haikus. I'm sure I could again.
