Today to be fully developed and creativeman is very fashionable. Many of our contemporaries devote much time to self-improvement and strive to maximize their potential. Many experts in this field recommend starting a change in their own lives with the acquisition of a diary and inculcating oneself with the habit of actually filling it every day. The original replacement of a boring business option is a creative notebook. Let's try to figure out what it is and how to make a similar book for records with our own hands.
Most recently in the bookstores of our countrythere were diaries with unusual design. Such publications quickly gained incredible popularity among people of different ages and professions. Conditionally all such notebooks can be divided into several types.
The first variety is a diary for recording, each of which has a unique color background. Of course, writing in such a bright book is much more pleasant than on a white sheet of paper.
The second kind of creative notebooks is diaries, oneach page of which is printed with some wise quote or useful advice. At the same time, the book can contain information from various spheres of life or be devoted to a narrow topic.
The third category is a creative notepad-motivator. This is a book for entries with assignments for every day. The most popular thematic diaries of this category - for artists (respectively, each page is invited to leave a picture) or for writers, with a list of topics for mini-stories and interesting ideas. Another category of notebooks for creative people combines all the previous ones.
Universal diaries for disclosurecreative potential is offered immediately to perform unusual tasks in real life (and write short reports on the pages of the book), do simple psychological exercises, draw and write about yourself. If you want, you can even find such a notebook for collective filling.
An art notebook with tasks today is not difficult to buy inany bookstore. The cost of such a book for entries is usually from 300 to 1000 rubles. "Why so expensive?" - you ask. A creative notebook usually has a quality cover and cover, the quality of paper and print is not inferior to this book, and do not forget about its ideological content. The only disadvantage of this acquisition is that even if you buy a diary for yourself, you can not be sure that you will like it until you begin to fill it. So why not save and try to make a creative notebook with tasks by yourself?
Let's start making our art daily withpreparation of the basis. Of course, you can just buy a quality notebook or a book for entries and then just fill out the pages. But this option is not interesting enough, it is much more pleasant to make your own notebook from and to yourself. Prepare the required number of sheets. Cut them to the chosen size, if you wish, color, decorate with stamps, small drawings, figure out the edge. The most difficult part of the work is making a binding. Pages of the notebook can be sewn together, glued or stapled using hardware - rings, springs. Once the block for the records is ready, you can proceed with the design of the cover.
It does not matter for whom you are making a creative notebook -for yourself or as a gift. Such a diary should be beautifully decorated and cause only pleasant emotions. Do not be lazy to give enough time and attention to work on the cover. It can be covered with a cloth, decorated with a beautiful postcard or painting, or glued to your favorite photo. On the inside, be sure to attach the fly-leaves, thanks to them your work will look much more accurate. Cover the cover to the block for entries and put the book under the press. Once your notebook is dry, you can start the most interesting part of the work.
Start the book for entries from the author's sheet. Let it be a mini-questionnaire with a story about who the creative notebook with assignments belongs to, and, perhaps, a small autobiography. Believe me, signing any diary is a special ritual. Even in the business version, filling out general information about yourself and leaving your phone number in case your notebook is lost, you thereby, as it were, claim ownership of the item. In the creative book for recording, you can place your own photo on one of the first pages, only necessarily the most positive and favorite. Now you can fill in all the other pages. If you are afraid of accidentally starting to group similar tasks, write them specifically outright. Suppose you have just finished with the design of the 5th page, flip on the 10th and start writing any assignment or idea boldly. In addition to assignments, you can write simple parting words for yourself, your favorite quotes or positive short-term motivators.
If you decide to make your own creativenotebook, ideas that come to mind during the filling of his pages, may seem silly to you at the time of writing. But do not be shy of your own thoughts. Write everything that comes to mind. Even if a specific task does not teach you anything and turns out to be useless, it will brighten up the day and make you happy. For example, in almost any ready-made creative diary you can find the following tips and recommendations: write a letter to a friend with whom you have not spoken for a long time; try something new; write down what is remembered today; draw a picture; describe what troubled you most today.
For people living in an active rhythm, muchmore interesting will be a creative notebook for two. Such a diary is filled at once with two close people or a whole company of friends. Accordingly, the tasks in it are designed for collective creativity. These can be questions about joint pastime, suggestions to describe each other or even draw a caricature. Do not be afraid to include the most unexpected tasks in the notebook, and you will definitely get the maximum pleasure from "communication" with the finished book.
