I bought this book a while ago and only decided to play with it the other day when Hubby was off work. We both needed some cheering up after the burglary and it really did the trick! It is possibly the most fun I've ever had with a book! I took photos of my journal before I began to wreck it, so, once it's finished I'll post the before and after pictures.
In this book good does not exist. The goal is to fill it up, to shift your perception of the blank page and the journal itself into a place for experimentation. Into a place where you just get stuff out onto the page. A place to start working against your better judgment. To do those things you were taught to never do (make a mess, destroy, fold down pages, write in books, play with dirt). This book IS the place. Each page of Wreck This Journal is filled with prompts telling you how to systematically ‘destroy’ the entire book.
Off to wreck my journal some more...

Once I had finished with the coloured pages, I just messed about on the other pages - making little works of art with junk. On the page above, I rubbed tea into it! Great fun!

Ta-da! This is one of my favourite pieces by Donna. On her blog, she does little youtube videos, which I am thoroughly enjoying.

- Calling the estate agent to get them to pay for a glazier
- Calling our insurance company to see if we're covered and make a claim
- Calling the police to inform them of the other things we have realised are missing (and to see if they have found the scum)
- Tidying up!

Hubby and I have moved into our new house and we are now fully operational with not just a phone line, but internet too. Hooray. We moved in a week ago and have been decorating furiously all week. The living room is finished and next to be completed is the studio. Once that is all assembled (shelves, desks, etc) I can set about creating some arty pieces. That's all for now: just wanted to let my readers know that I was still alive. And as I feel that I cannot post without a photo, here is one of wallpaper in our living room.
