Since the summer I have had a Wreck This Journal after Penguin Platform introduced the "#wreckthissummer" competition. This allowed me to explore the activities in the Wreck This Journal and I found out that I really liked doing it. After the summer, I neglected the journal but in the last couple of weeks I found that I have definitely been more excited to complete it. I thought that because I liked doing it that I would update my progress of the journal although it is a work in progress. If you do not like this post, please let me know in the comments below and I know not to do another one again. So let's get started...
The inside page:
I think one of the tasks was to do something with this page so I tried to made it like the outside cover by the line paper and sticking the wreck this journal writing on it. People look shocked when they see this but you are meant to wreck it. You can also see I coloured the page behind it orange and pink and I made my own acknowledgements.
Add your own pages
The materials page is slightly incomplete as I haven't added a picture or doodle to each word but I like the other page with the adding your own numbers. Mine is not as artsy as other people's but it is quite simple so... I also remember the numbers taking so long to do and I am pretty sure that I did some of them wrong.
Crack the Spine and Leave This Page Blank On Purpose
The crack the spine page represents the reader's problems with cracking the spine and the bad things about it. The leave this page blank on purpose and I just wanted to put something on the page.
Pour, Spill, Drip, Spit, Fling your coffee here
On the left I tried to incorporate the coffee with the phrase "She likes cold coffee in the morning" which is from an Ed Sheeran song. This is also on coffee-soaked paper. This is also followed by a mug where the coffee has been used and a cup stain on the paper. The right page is random being purple paint and another cup of coffee.
Poke Holes In This Pages Using A Pencil
The balloons are where the holes were made but I did want to do something different so this is what came from it.
Draw Fat Lines and Thin
So the lines are drawn in order from thinnest to thickest however I have the wave in the middle that breaks this and I like it. The page on the left is one of my favourite quotes from Harry Potter and I really like that page.
This page is for fingerprints
As you can see I made a rainbow from my fingerprints and it did take a long time however I did get the result that I wanted so it was worth it.
Colour This Entire Page
I didn't really know what to do on this page so I just tried to fling paints at the page with a toothbrush. I like how the effects happened. The words on the page are lyrics from Colors by Halsey.
Press Leaves and other found things
The way this page happened was quite spontaneous as I already had the pressed flower- it's a long story- and I was thinking about the All The Bright Places and I knew there was a flower on the cover so this happened. I did enjoy All The Bright Places when I read it.
Write One Word Over and Over
This is one of my favourite pages with the word "always" being written all over and the deathly hallows being made in the middle.
Cover this page using only office supplies
I used sticky notes and sticky tabs to create a flower and it's background. Not sure if they are office supplies but they are school supplies so....
Use this an a test page
This page is literally just testing pens....
Make a Sudden, Destructive Movement with the Journal
So with this page of the journal I ripped it and made a hole with a bullet hole and there covered them with plasters/band-aids. This then meant that I had lyrics from Bad Blood by Taylor Swift.
