Visual Chronicles is all about YOU: your dreams, your memories, your daily routines, your greatest loves and your secret pet peeves. It's all about getting to know yourself better, savoring the wonderful ebb and flow of your everydays, and celebrating it all in visual mementos of your life journey.
This is the only book you'll ever need, to learn how to scrapbook in a way that is uniquely yours.

In this 128-page book, plump as plump can be with illustrations, the authors guide you on a whirlwind trek of empowerment: They show you how to celebrate the daily news of your life through visual additions in your journals and diaries, to augment and magnify commentary.
It will inspire the intimidated artist within and it's filled with easy projects and practical tips.
What a dynamite combination! We all have personal reasons and excuses why we can't put pen, pencil, paint, or glue to paper. This book allows us to see those reasons and excuses but nudges us to explore...a terrific way to start the journey.
