This is one of my favourite pages.
I started by doodling some random shapes and patterns on the pages. I’m not normally very good at being ‘random’ but I did my very best not to be uniform in any way. Not that there’s anything wrong with being uniform, that’s just wasn’t the plan I had for this page!
When I was happy with the design, I armed myself with all the felt tips, coloured pencils and gel pens I could get my hands on, and I started to add in the colour.
I mentioned in one of my earlier entries that whenever I look at my WTJ pages, I remember what was in my head at the time, what I was thinking, what was on TV or what music was playing.
However, when I look at this page, I have absolutely no recollection of what else was going on in the room, in the house, or in the world for that matter. I was just completely absorbed in what I was doing!
Maybe it’s strange (and a little embarrassing) for a 29 year old to be so happy colouring in, but it really was nice to just shut out all those ‘grown up’ worries and stresses, and just enjoy a few hours of being completely carefree!
I’ve managed to recruit a few of my friends into the art of Wrecking now, but if you are one of the ones who is still resisting, I urge you again to give it a go!
I also chose this page to address another of the instructions – “Hide a secret message somewhere within this book” (page 173). Have you spotted it yet?
