Wreck this Journal - 2

This journal is so addicting. You do a page and then you want to do another one and so on and so on. I have to say though that I really hate to trow anything away. OK, this can get to be a problem in other areas of my life but we won't go there :) On the page below I was to cut out strips and make a chain. Of course, I could not throw it away so I stapled it back in on the instruction part of the page. It makes the journal not close so well but that adds to the charm if you can say this journal has charm after spilling, spitting and smearing your food all over it. I love this page with all it's circles. What a mindless, fun exercise to get my creative juices flowing.
I didn't follow the rules too well on this one. I saw the instructions about draw fat and thin lines and away I went. When I was done I noticed it said with a pencil. Oh well, we will just cross that little detail out and make our own rules for this page. he,he!

I don't know how it happened but I actually like the coffee wrings. It reminds me of the coffee I love to drink every morning. Wouldn't it be fun to have a tablecloth with coffee wrings already printed on it so you wouldn't have to worry about spilling your coffee ever?

OK, this page was down right scary. I grabbed a match and thought I would start the flame going and then blow it out. OH NO! That flame was not going to be deterred from my tiny little puff. In fact, it was encouraged to burn faster, YIKES! Good thing I was standing in my bathroom where I was able to throw it in the sink and turn on the water. I suppose I could have stomped out the flame but when you are trying to react quickly you grab the first thing you see. Besides, this isn't the last time this book is going to see a little water. I still have the shower session to go through.

The circles and the lines are gorgeous pages. I love your tablecloth idea - that could make you rich!

I love that you crossed out that instruction! I'm going to keep that particular idea in my toolkit :)

Great wrecking!
