Layers of Meaning: Elements of Visual Journaling (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


The visual journal is a simple hand-bound notebook in which to create, using mixed media techniques, works that serve as an expression of the soul and create a path to healing, internal freedom, and the sparking of passion.

"Visual Journey Journaling" is an innovative artistic language taught by Rakefet Hadar and made up of seven elements: Intention, Magical Coincidence, Background, Images, Lines, Color, and Text. Visual Journey Journaling (VJJ) invites you to a fascinating world where you will reconnect with the your hidden inner artist to create "soul pages" using simple techniques and subtle guidelines to take a look inside yourself. Rakefet has taught these methods for many years, guiding even inexperienced artists to find the stories within themselves.

In the first chapter of the book you will learn how to master the seven elements in your journal. There are many fun exercises and a step-by-step tutorial of how to start a simple journal. Next you will learn how to make a soul page in a step-by-step process with the seven elements. You will explore a variety of materials and how to work with them to find and create your pages. You will learn to build your journal and how to bind it into a finished book. Throughout the book and in the final section, you'll see and find the meanings in Rakefet's stunning private art journal pages and read her stories behind them.

Rakefet Hadar lives in Israel and works as an art therapist with children and adults. The most powerful tool she offers her clients is Visual Journey Journaling. Rakefet's discovery of art journaling a few years ago changed her life. From a very young age she painted, sketched, and created works of art; however, as she grew up, the joy this pastime used to give her waned. A few years ago, one of her friends showed her an altered book, and Rakefet was hooked instantly. She went online, found a tutorial on how to make her own altered book, and that was the beginning. Art journaling and the mixed media language restored in her the joy she once felt in the creation of art. She believes it can be soul-healing, and it has certainly helped her through difficult periods in her life. As a teacher, she sees the same results in her students and clients. Rakefet developed her method, Visual Journey Journaling (VJJ), and she teaches it worldwide and through her digital courses. You can find out more at
