Wreck This Journal........as I continue on......my week #11.......

Well I have continued to work in my journal. This week I have done all sorts of things....finding lots of images I wanted to include in my journal...jotting down messages sometimes if I thought of one that the image reminded me of. I have a long way to go.....

I have added more images or embellishments to my cover. What better image than KING KONG for the WRECKING part? AND notice I added in a butterfly beside it....and at the bottom right a BELIEVE button after START HERE...


HUM...what else is there to say? Channing Tatum....is what he is.....


There was not much to report on sleeping with the journal...


I am adding more to the backside....the only reason GI JOE toy is there is to cover my addy

I am working on my SCRATCH page......I instantly thought of cats....I guess because of their claws?


I already had taken the journal into the shower with me. I am glad I did this early on as I doubt I would want to take it in the shower now. On the flipside I decided to add in the image of dry, desolation, stagnation...and added in the message to remember to water the roots of your creativity!

I also love the Wizard of OZ. THIS is a WORK IN PROGRESS...as I want to also add in some FLYING MONKEYS!!!! They scared the crap out of me as a kid but I want to include them here. I also want to add in some Ruby Red slippers and THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME page....I always want to follow my own road too....not one that everyone else follows...hence the message.


I LOVE fireflies and the backside of my BURN page had all these holes that reminded me of bugs flying up and around. SO I found an image of a really cool jar filled with lightning bugs and then set to work to try to make it look like a dark sky with lightning bugs escaping from the jar. The flipside was my coffee page. I did make a stain with my coffee, but you could barely see it. SO I just doodled some coffee stuff and thoughts here.


I love Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang...had to include some of them in my journal. I have more ideas for another page or two with them.....so more will be coming. Of course Charlie Brown has taught us all to NEVER EVER GIVE UP!



I have NO idea what this is or was going to be other than it reminds me now of Howard Stern in drag. I don't really care for it....but I am not going to cover it up. Obviously it did not turn out as I had planned...this took on a mind of its own!


This is the reverse image of the one above......the ink bled through the paper so I made a lighter version ...a FAIRER (fairy) version on this side......I don't really care for her either but I like her better than the drag version of Howard Stern on the flipside. So I made a mess...but did not really clean it up all that great.


AND that is it for now......so......question is......

WHAT HAVE YOU WRECKED LATELY??

Oh your journal is such a work of art. Really beautiful. When I come here your art, combined with the black background of your blog, makes me feel like I am in a dream, everytime.

I happen to find Howard Stern funny (I know, I am so embarrassed, I can't help it) so maybe that is why I like your HS in drag, sitting out on a limb ;)
