Description

Take a joyfully unconventional creative journey! With both artistic and writing prompts, this mixed-media journal encourages creative freedom and thinking outside the box.

Are you in need of some fresh creative inspiration and new ways to relieve stress all in one?
Design & Destroy is the journal for you. With it, discover a new way of approaching the creative process with over 150 prompts varying from encouraging you to design something that's completely your own, to prompts that encourage you to take destruction and make something from the remains.

Break the mold as you respond to prompts including:
  • Sew a page
  • Make a collage of all your fortunes from fortune cookies
  • Practice drawing hands
  • Press flowers
  • Fill a page with paint splatter
  • Create your own optical illusion
  • And many more
Whether you're a creative looking for unique ideas to re-inspire you, or a beginner artist drawn to the nontraditional forms of art, this journal is the perfect outlet.

There is no right or wrong way to fill this journal—make a mess, make all the mistakes, and have fun destroying these pages!

With so much of our lives and contact going digital, the Creative Keepsakes journals offer an intimate way to nurture your connection with yourself and the people around you. An entertaining way to get off your screen, these guided and free-form journals are great for writers and artists alike. Each journal offers content around a different theme, including silly prompts for a laugh, random yet thoughtful questions, inspiration for art and composition, interactive prompts to learn about your heritage, and blank interiors on high-quality paper stock to use as your creative canvas. Beautifully designed and full of mindful prompts, channel your inspiration as you put pen (or pencil, or marker, or crayon!) to paper to learn more about yourself, your talents, and the people you love.
