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


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: Tear this page out. Put it in your pocket. Put it through the wash. Stick it back in.


So I have seen other people do this page, and they’ve ended up with some slightly tinted but practically perfect version of this page.

But no, apparently that wasn’t the plan for me.

Imagine my horror when I dragged out my washing and looked in my pocket and found the page gone.  I searched and searched, and eventually discovered that the page had escaped from my pocket and found its way into a pillowcase.

The picture on the right is the result!!!!!

So, not to be beaten, I picked out some of the larger bits and left them to dry out.  I have now reattached them to the new ‘page’.

The lumps of paper are now really hard, which means that writing/drawing/colouring on any pages in my WTJ is now..erm…interesting, to say the least!!!!


Wreck This Journal: Fill this page with circles


At long last, here is my circles page!!  I started this ages ago, by cutting up this pink gift bag with big white dots on it and sticking that on as a background.

(I also used the handles from the gift bag to make the ties of my WTJ, as discussed here.)

I had some bubble wrap, which is of course made up of lots of little circles, so I cut that into big and small circles, and stuck those on.  Then I was stuck with this page that I just wasn’t happy with.  I left it a few weeks, hoping that a brilliant idea would come to me.

It didn’t.

I considered a couple of ideas, but they just never happened.  Then I bought a packet of little multicoloured pompoms – I only really wanted the white ones for the white page, and the only pack I could find was multicoloured.  So of course I then had all these colourful ones spare, and thought maybe I could use them on this page….

A few pompoms and a lot of glue later, I’m much happier with this page.  It’s not perfect, but it’s kind of cute, don’t you think? 😉


Wreck This Journal: Scribble wildly using borrowed pens


This one doesn’t need much explaining.  It was one of the pages I did when alone at work over Christmas, and I went around all the admin desks scribbling with whatever I could find.

I couldn’t help noticing how many ‘run out’ pens we seem to keep!  There were dried up felt-tips and highlighters, scratchy empty biros and blobby gel pens.  But this was a nice quick one to do, and one of the few pages which I have actually let loose on!
