Wrecking My Journal

Standard

Ive had a ‘Wreck This Journal’ for a while but up until now I have never touched it because it just didnt feel right to deface a book. Which is kinda strange when you think about it because in the past I have had no problems tearing out book pages for making into backgrounds and collages in my art  and I have also had no issues defacing a book for altering strangely enough.

I guess I just wasn’t as brave as I thought I was.

For those of you who dont know what a ‘Wreck This Journal’ is; have a look see at the following linksie:

Ive been having a rough ride recently with my fibro flare up, the pain has been pretty bad and I have been unable to move due to it.

I have been missing my art time because its the only thing that helps me keep sane so I decided to have a go at defacing this journal because I figured it might help keep my mind occupied for a little while and I didnt need to move much to do it as all I needed was a couple of pens to get started.

So I made a start on wrecking my journal, finally after all this time!

Heres the first couple of pages which I have done so far, I will  share more as I do them:
