Hello, everyone~ How are you?
Today we are doing another ‘Wreck this Journal’! I’m so excited, it’s been quite awhile. I’m so sorry but life has been hectic, hopefully I can get back up to date!
I don’t have much to say, if you have seen the first one go check it out as it has the full introduction in it.
That is all, read on~
Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith
Page Six: Ruining Your Markers
Guys, before I start saying what I have to stay- just note that there is only going to be an after photo here because I lost the before photo. I don’t know how, but it’s gone. Lost in the abyss. Now, let me begin my rant.
This was a disgusting page to do. Honestly, I wanted to rip it out and start it again so many times. This page took me an entire week to do, purely because I would stare at it, draw a line and throw it across the room. It made me want to cry.
This page made me want to burn this book. So I never actually finished this page, it just looks like I started to do something, and then stopped with a bunch of random lines across the page. It looks terrible and I want to move on from this experience. Never again.
Page Seven: Leaving a Trace
I actually liked doing this one.
I didn’t want to get my hands dirty because I was doing this at 5pm and I usually have dinner at 6pm (usually on the dot, too), so I decided to just trace my hands instead. And it turned out really well.
I had to rub out some and fix up some of the lines because I had my hands at an awkward angle and my nails looked odd, but besides that, it looked pretty spot on.
I didn’t want to ruin it with colour so I just added some little touched and finished it off. Hopefully, it counts~
Page Eight: Vomit of Colour
I wasn’t exactly sure what to do for this one at first, so I went to the trusted Google and searched for some ideas and there were so many. Instead of this being helpful, it instead intimidated me and I got overwhelmed. Eventually, I figured out an original idea when I saw someone doing the four seasons, and turned it into flowing/fading of colours.
I thought it was a cool concept until it came to conducting it. I’m not a crafty person, so it doesn’t look great, but the idea it there.
It’s original at least!
Page Nine: Anger Management 2.0
I wasn’t exactly sure what to do for this one so I picked up a marker/texter, as I figured this one would show more heavily than a pencil (as I didn’t have paint nearby (nor the transport to get some)). Then I just started tossing the marker/texter from a short distance hoping it would land on the page and not on my laptop or desk.
It turned out okay, and I did this quite a few times, even adding a few of my own. Then after I just added a few decorations. The bow was done terribly but at least I tried.
Page Ten: Hoarding
This was easy. I just went outside, picked some pretty leaves, walked insides, put them in the journal, and shut it. The only downside here is the fact that is it summer here in Australia so it was slim pickings, I had a choice between this weird purple flower, this bird looking flower, and leaves. That was all we had in our garden. Australia is brutal. What makes it worse is that summer hadn’t even hit till midway through December, and now that it has hit most of Australia is on fire. I hope our fauna will recover.
That is all for today! Thank you all for reading, I hope you guys enjoyed. This journal entry took quite awhile to create.
I can already tell as we progress this this Wreck this Journal it is going to get much harder and interesting to do, and I’m actually excited.
