Wreck this Journal 1

First week of Wreck this Journal. I’m amazed to find myself tempted to write in it rather than wreck it. For me, a blank journal usually sits empty and forlorn and lost and neglected; I hate the blank pages! So maybe the suggestive pre-entries have warmed it up for my writing urges?

For the first page, technically page 2 because first of all I broke the spine, whaddya know, I wrote on it! WORD!

Next, the tear-this-up page. Rip! Rip! Rip! All the strips came out lopsided and the ends began to curl up on their own. I curled them a little more.

Then I wove some of the torn strips into the scratch-it page. The scratch-it page had more holes than scratches, mainly because my buddy the little kitty went into fail-whale mode and fell asleep on the job.

Note to self: play with more pop-up books!

Well, you’ve been busy, haven’t you! I’m sure your cat will be more than happy to help you out in this process.

I still haven’t torn anything, but I did have my cat chomp on one of the pages :) You’re doing a great job so far!

I love how the evidence of your wreckage is around your journal as well as in it! Weaving – how cool! With all the cutting, tearing, adding, wrecking – maybe this will become a pop-up book :)

How fun! Pop-up books… there’s a good idea!
