There are so many things that this letter could have been for; weary, worried, Wild World of the Williams’ (http://bowkill36.wordpress.com/), worn out, whisper (Zander is really getting the hang of it now!), the list could go on and on. But this is one of the very few (maybe even only one) of the blogs I already had an idea for as soon as I started this A-Z Challenge. I love my Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. It is the perfect outlet for my creativity, and caters to every whim possible. I helped a friend with one back in high school, and finally bought my own sometime last year. I plan on owning many more. The possibilities with this book are endless! To give you a taste, Imma post some pictures of the pages I have “completed.” (I put that in parenthesis because I can’t guarantee I won’t add more to it later! That is the beauty of this book!)
This is my journal.
“Where Destruction Can Be Beautiful!”
This is the acknowledgements page, with my doodles all over it.
My revised edition of the materials page!
Crack The Spine!
Still trying to find the best way to attach these to the page without ruining them.
Rip Strips. I used help lines, unfortunately my kids took this literal and ripped them right outta the book. Oh well, the journal WAS meant to be destroyed.
Write one word over and over. MUSIC.
Tongue Painting. I did this with some Crayola taffys that changed the color of your tongue. You can’t see the colors that well here, but it actually turned out pretty cool.
A test page for markers, pens, etc. My next page bled through to this one, but you can still kinda see the majority of it.
Drip something here, close the book to make a print. I used food coloring. LOVE IT!
A page for good thoughts. =)
Infuse this page with a smell of your choice. Sweet Pea, still smells good!
Hang this book in a public place and invite people to write in it.
A space for negative comments: what is your inner critic saying?
A page for 4 letter words.
A list of other ways to wreck this journal.
Stain Log: this one is still a work in progress.
I filled the inside of the back cover with words to live by.
There is a page that says let a friend do something destructive to this page, don’t look. I changed it to book instead of page. Mariesa chose this page: Color this entire page. I love the outcome.
Seriously, if you don’t have one, I suggest you pick one up. Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith.
