Art journals are a great way to get in touch with your creative side. The best thing about art journals is that you don’t have to have a creative bone in your body to create an amazingly artistic book of art. Rip it! Write it! Draw it! is an awesome tool to get just about anyone into the creating mood. Whether you’re 5 or 45, Rip it! Write it! Draw it! will get you thinking creatively in no time. It contains hundreds of prompts and challenges designed to help bring out your inner Picasso.
Rip it! Write it! Draw it! gets you to think outside of the box when it comes to art, even if it seems a little strange (but that’s the fun part!). When you think of food, does art come to mind? How about using a strawberry as a paint brush or marker?? Rip it! Write it! Draw it! has plenty of fun (and sometimes strange!) food challenges that you’ll love putting down on paper. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to get messy.
Your journal can also be used to get you out of the house and moving! The plant challenges force you to be active and to get outside. Who knows where your searches for grass, different shaped leaves or tree bark will lead you. Creating art can take so many different forms. Rubbing a page of your journal against tree bark? Just another way to create art in Rip it! Write it! Draw it!
There are so many reasons to pick up your own copy (and maybe one for a friend) of Rip it! Write it! Draw it! Creating art is an excellent way to relieve stress and many use it as their own personal therapy session. This art journal is great for adults, teenagers and kids. Pick up a few copies for your son, daughter and maybe a few for their friends. They can share their journals with each other as they go along to see how their friends interpreted the prompts and challenges. This is a fun way for kids to see things through the eyes of others and it enlightens their senses to unforeseen possibilities.
Your journal should be a constant work in progress; revisit pages you’ve already done to add new things whenever you like. Keep your journal handy when you’re out and about; you never know when you’ll have the opportunity to complete an artistic challenge. The best thing about Rip it! Write it! Draw it! is that there isn’t a right or wrong way to create your journal. Don’t be afraid to improvise! Instead of melting candle wax onto a page, why not melt different colored crayons? The final product is a beautifully unique work of art that you might just want to try for yourself. If you’re curious about what other’s have done with their Rip it! Write it!
