Crafts: Wreck This Journal
About a year ago I posted an article about it on my blog Keri Smith, a writer of creative books. I have three books from her, The Non-Planner Datebook (Dutch version), Wreck This Journal (Dutch version) and This Is Not A Book (English version). In This Is Not A Book I had already completed many assignments. Wreck This Journal was still as good as new. Something had to be done about that!
Keri Smith's books are activity books. Each page contains an assignment that you can complete as desired. In Wreck This Journal the assignments are mainly about changing the book. Below I'll show you some pages I made.
Assignment: Write/scribble something on the sides
Assignment: Fill the pages with circles
Assignment: Cover this page with office supplies
Assignment: Drop something here
Assignment: Collect the stamps from all your mail
As you can see, I cheated a bit... his old stamps.
Assignment: draw with glue
Assignment: Draw a non-stop line
Assignment: Cover this page with white things
Those were my first created pages. I also think the latter. Wreck This Journal is a nice book, but I liked This Is Not A Book better. The Wreck This Journal assignments were set up to change the book and that often means demolishing it. I notice that I don't like that very much. The assignments of This Is Not A Book are more about changing the pages, I also find the assignments more free and creative to do. I could express myself more in this :-).
