It's been hard for me to get online this past week and today I need to make it short, but here are a couple of things that I've done so far to Wreck This Journal.
First of all, I tore up some strips and then taped them back on to the next page that says to staple or tape the page back. The problem I have is that I can't stand seeing so much white paper. And since it's all about wrecking/changing things - I decided to color the strips with watercolor crayons and then brushed water over them. It was so relaxing, almost like being a kid again just coloring and ripping things up!
My next choice was to make a paper chain out of one of the pages. Once again, I wasn't working with plain old white. So I colored the page in (front and back) with watercolor crayons and then brushed the whole thing with water. Since the paper is really thin, I had to wait for it to dry before cutting it all up into little strips.
It reminded me of days long ago as a kid making paper chains . . . well, maybe not too long ago since I still make them when I have a ton of scrap paper laying around!
I don't have pictures of this, but after I was done I ended up stapling the chain back into the page and squishing it so that the book would close. It looks so sad now, but it's a fun little reminder of what I did.
Okay maybe this post wasn't so short! I can't wait to have a moment to see what everyone else has done!
