Wreck This Journal: Make a funnel. Drink some water.

Standard

I was reluctant to do this one, but eventually I did it!  I cut out the cone, coloured it in, filled it with water, and yes, I drank from it!!*

Then I stuck it back in, and randomly stuck in a picture of a scene from Alice In Wonderland on the adjacent page.  For no reason other than that I love it 🙂

(*In hindsight, maybe I shouldn’t have drunk from somethng that had been coloured in with permanent ink and colouring pencils…don’t try this at home, kids!!  But I haven’t noticed any side effects so far…*twitches* 😉 )

Wreck This Journal: Name page (revisited)

Standard

May I now present…my new Name page!!

I have already written about my uninspiring Name page.  I’d followed the instructions but used no creativity whatsoever, and to say it was uninspiring would be an understatement!

I had been considering jazzing it up in some way, but I couldn’t think how.  Then, while exchanging wrecking ideas with one of my friends, I had an idea.

It involved splitting the page into sections and writing the letters of my name in them.  I remember doing this when I was younger and I just loved to doodle – on school books, usually, or any scrap of paper.  I’d draw out squares and write my name or the names of whichever celeb I was crushing on at the time – come on, you know you did it too!!

For this page, I decided to draw the lines at an angle…I used a ruler and measured the sections exactly, in case anyone’s interested!!  Being Wreckless still doesn’t come easy to me!!

I wanted the design to be a background to the content of the page, rather than covering it up completely, so I wanted to keep the colouring.  On my laptop screen, I can hardly see the colours at all, so I hope you can.  the colours are hardly visible, so I hope you can see them.

I’m really happy with how it turned out 🙂

The page next to it is another story!  The first plan was to stick a pretty carrier bag over it.  I did this, and it didn’t quite look as good as it did in my mind!  If you really want to see, then there’s a picture here.  It was a terrible idea, it looked tacky and horrible, had no relation to the page beside it and I just wasn’t happy with it at all.

So, I peeled that right off and started again!

I covered the page in rainbow paper and then glued on a cat picture from an old birthday card that I just thought was fun.  It’s a hologram on thick plastic, so as well as being incredibly difficult to cut to size, it is also very difficult to take a picture of!  But I have done my best to show the hologram and here it is:

      

I’m happy with this page now anyway, and I think it makes a nice welcome page 🙂
