Wreck This Journal











Once again we are sharing our "wreckings" - as Jamie has had us do for the pasr few weeks. This new "Next Chapter" book group has been a fun one - with challenges as well. Be sure to check out the other members of this group at Jamie's blog.

I was not able to post last week so am including what I have doing to my journal over the past 2 weeks.
The biggest event was actually having a shower with it! I wasn't even modest! Even sprayed it! But then it was over 2 days drying out!










That bit of wrecking got me moving after that. I scratched it, threw it, painted it, scribbled in it, cut it, washed it and tore it!













I also "loved" it - and did it my way. (One word page!)


I did a "paint" blot - and then did a print with a butterfly.










I tore a paper out, crumpled it up and tried to get our cat to play with it. I was the one batting it around! She was certainly in no mood to play with me or the paper ball!.


I went to tear a paper out and lose it but discovered my 4-letter word collage on the other side! Yikes! So instead I lost the "lice" - not a word a teacher wants to have around! lol



One of the most fun to do was to deface my face! That was a hoot!
I had fun with it the past 2 weeks and looking forward to more fun times! It is certainly getting a wee bit wrecked!

Oh that is wrecked! I love the "defacing" of your photo. That was the next one I wanted to do, and I believe you just inspired me to get off my butt and get busy.

I love your cat's attitude! If I was that gorgeous, I'd be stuck up too ;)

Thanks Kavindra! I really appreciate your kind words.
Our Fluffy is a beauty - 17 years old! I can't believe she is tho - she acts more like a kitten at times.
Do take care.

Ab-fab wreckage!!

Oh, but I laughed at the cold-shoulder your Fluffy is giving your paper ball...as IF a cat of her bearing would lower herself to such foolishness...;)

I totally love the photo defacement...oh, but I'm going to have fun with that one!!

xo

Happy wrecking!

*laugh* great wrecking! The way pets get involved is so varied, some love it, some hate it...

Hybrid J said...

Wonderful wreckage ... well done! :)

Jean said...

Ooh, you are GOOD! I love how thick your journal is now from all the wreckage! I especially like your ripped in strips and that you tried to get your cat to play with the ball.

And I never thought of a collage for the four letter word! I love that! (maybe I will borrow it...)

Alex said...

I have noticed the more one wrecks their journal the THICKER and FLUFFIER they get! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment after watching my shower video!

It is absolutely hilarious to see your journal fluffed up like a proud peacock! It is HUGE!

Genie Sea said...

Everyone seems to be having so much fun with this journal project - I might have to try it, too! I love that you weren't even modest for your shower with the journal. :)

Annette Q said...

I really love the way your journals looking...all puffed up! I need to work on mine to get it to look like that! :-)

I'm still making my way through the WTJ list -eek and we're almost to Friday again!

You've done a fabulous wrecking job - As with the others, your photo defacing was a hoot, The cat ignoring the crumpled ball - too funny, I also did the barcode thing, but I didn't document my food choices (you're brave lol), but most of all, I'm so proud of you for really getting your journal wet.

Have a great day!

Loved your wrecking! You are doing an awesome job and I think your pages are looking really nice and wrinkled, curled, creased, etc. Cute picture of your kitty too!

I also loved that you shared your efforts at self-portraiture. It's not easy, is it?

One more thing, I just gave you an award for your blog. Check out my blog post here: http://www.spiritessenceart.com/2009/07/not-one-but-two.html
