Wreck This Journal - The Guts - Part X

I'm still working on Keri Smith's Wreck This Journal. I worked on a few pages this week including one I started last week. I also marked a few of the pages that I'd like to do next. Hopefully, I'll get to those this week.

Here's my update for week 10 of my journal wrecking adventure:

Wrap Something with this Page: My main goal here was to be able to put the page back into the book. To do the "wrapping", I removed the page and cut out the sections to fold over the giant paperclips. They are sort of wrapped. I left the bottom one untied to expose the contents. Anyway, I'm going to embellish the page some more. Once that's done, I'll add the page back to the book.

Glue a Random Page from a Newspaper Here: I didn't want to glue a whole page or even a whole article here, so I just took a few of the headlines from the front page of the Winnipeg Free Press and glued them in. Done.

Sleep with the Journal: Describe the Experience Here: I couldn't print out the picture I featured last week (I'm out of colour printer ink), so I cut out some pictures of bedding and things from the newspaper flyers this week. I also took the text I used to describe my experience and added that. I think I'm done with this one.

Links to other updates: The Beginning, Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, Part VIII, Part IX.

See you next Sunday for another update.


  1. Great interpretations.

    Daughter took her journal to an author event on saturday and had all the authors sign a page. The hostess from the book store has asked her to write a reveiw of the journal that will post on the shelf at the store. She said she had not seen one that had been so loved.

  2. This looks like a fun thing to do, but I would likely end up being too neat!

  3. Thanks Heather. I hope your daughter posts her review on her blog.

    Myckyee: It is fun and being neat is ok. The book mostly gets "wrecked" just from so much handling and added items to it. There are, of course, some destructive pages (like burning, etc), but even those could be done neatly...sort of.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
