Wreck This Journal: Close the book. Write/scribble something on the edges.

Standard

One of the pages of the book – page 177 – states ‘Close the book.  Write/scribble something on the edges.’

I decided instead to colour it in.  So I got out my brightly coloured felt tips – the permanent ones, because I thought they would be more durable than the washable Crayola felt tips that I seem to have several packs of…

It was fun to colour the edges, I have to admit!  I tried not to obsess about going over the edges – you know, when the cover flips forward and you get a mark on the inside cover – right???  And it was impossible to avoid getting my fingers covered in a rainbow of permanent ink, which wouldn’t wash off until at least 24 hours later!!

But I liked the effect, so it was worth the mess!

Of course, my fancy spine design was destined to be ruined in a matter of days, because the more pages I do, the bigger the journal gets.  But at the moment, you can still see the general effect.  And the ink hasn’t run yet.  I’m curious to see what happens when/IF it ever gets anywhere near the shower though (as instructed on page 73)!!!
