Wreck This Journal

What a week for getting into the journal. This has been the best yet - in terms of enjoying the process, f or doing my own thing, for just getting pages done.


As others have said, it is the process, not the end product. The actual doing pages has gotten me thinking, planning, doing and then , going on to other things!



This week I coloured, used hair, chewed, added dirt - to name a few of the things I did.







I had to check markers leftover from school eventually, so used them on this page. Then I dirtied up another page.















I chewed on "this" (borrowed the idea from someone! -thanks!) and finished the one continuous line.


My absolute favourite though was creating with hair!





This is a portrait of my cat - she was sitting by the sliding door waiting to go out and I had a brainwave.

Yes - it is HER fur on her portrait! She is shedding like crazy. Eventually I hope to fill it in.


I did a few other things, but these were what I enjoyed the most.




This week as well , Alex and I traded pages. What a treat it was to receive hers in the mail. What beautiful colours and textures. (We ended up sending the same page!) Her is hers.

Thanks again Alex - I love it!

Thanks Jamie for arranging the trades.



Be sure to check the other "wreckers"- see what everyone ( and this is a big group) is up.

I was wondering how on earth to do the hair page. Cat hair seems like a good idea. Too bad I don't have a cat or a dog.
