Wreck This Journey Wednesdays

Wreck This Journey Wednesdays #4

Better late than never! I was planning to switch to every other week, but I was busy babysitting all last week and didn’t get a chance to write up a post.

The good news? I worked on quite a few things in my journal, including adding a TON of stickers. If you follow my Instagram you’ll have seen a few of the pics already.

Since this one is (EXTREMELY) late, I’ll get right to the pics!

Another update for Color This Page Red!


Rolled a 3 for Roll a Die to Find Out What Color This Page Will Be. So glad I didn’t get another red, but I’m nervous to work with black.


Completed make a paper chain, and you can see the start of Collect Fruit Stickers here.



I’m especially proud of A Page for Four-Letter Words.


And I added some Harry Potter magic to Hide a Secret Message Somewhere in This Book.



And here’s the sticker rampage. These pages aren’t done yet, but I added some stickers to jazz them up a bit.










That’s all for now. Feel free to add questions about any of the pages or stickers in the comments below. You can also check out my Facebook or Instagram page!

Wreck This Journey Wednesday #3

I felt pretty crummy after skipping last week, so I tackled a fun page this week. I also have a few pages in the works and added to my Color This Page Red On Purpose.


First up: Collect Your Pocket Lint. This prompt was a bit of a challenge because I don’t always have pockets (women’s clothing is sad) and I don’t have much lint in the pockets I do have. I thought about it for a while and realized I could use the lint from the dryer when I did my laundry!

The lint I collected had a blue-tint, so I decided to go for an undersea sort of look. Or maybe a stormy sky? It’s up for interpretation. I kind of like the result, but it may have an upgrade with my next round of laundry.

Next I started working on Randomly Cut Out Some Colors From a Magazine. I got a lot of color on the page, but didn’t finish up yet. I had a little trouble finding colors that stood out to me, but I did find a hamster in a wonderfully colorful hat.

On the plus side, going through magazines I found an add for Redd’s Apple Ale, and cut out RED to add to my Color This Page Red On Purpose. It was super fun to paint the page, but I love the idea of adding different red elements to it.

Lastly, I pulled out the color pages at the end of the book. They are used for a few of the prompts that I’m hoping to work on soon.

Wreck This Journey Wednesdays #2

This week isn’t the most exciting chapter in Wreck This Journey, but it took forever. I went through and numbered all of the pages. It led to some major hand cramping.

I did add some color to my journal though. The “materials” and “ADD YOUR OWN PAGE NUMBERS” pages got a rainbow makeover. It was super fun updating from black and white to a color explosion.


I also updated my “INSTRUCTIONS” page. I tried out a zentangle doodle I found on Pinterest and add some color to the instructions using my Kaiser Craft gel pens from Crafter’s Haven Ltd,I got them a while back, but they are still one of my faves!


Numbering all of my pages did give me a chance to check out all of the prompts in my journal. I can’t wait to get started on a few of these. I also might have found a way to get around the prompt that scares me, so keep an eye out for that.

I also went a little journal crazy when I went to Barnes & Noble with my mom. I got a bullet journal by Peter Pauper Press that matches my address book perfectly. That was all I planned to get, but I also picked up One Line A Day and One List A Day journals by Chronicle Books. They were just too fun not to get and it justifies my B&N membership!

Wreck This Journey Wednesdays #1

My mom has always called me her child of many colors, and when the Wreck This Journal: Now in Color edition came out she bought it for me. I’ve been wanting to experience this kind of journal ever since I first saw hers, and so I’m excited to share my progress every Wednesday.

Choosing where to start was interesting. I’m indecisive, so I had trouble choosing. Initially I started with the basic filling out the inside tab with my name and signing the Wreck This Pledge. I also found the page I definitely won’t be filling out: COLLECT DEAD BUGS HERE. As much as I want to embrace filling out the journal and facing my fears of destroying a book I’m not prepared to deal with bugs. Even if I could kill them it would freak me out to have a graveyard of them in my journal.


Flipping through the rest of the pages one finally stood out: COLOR THIS PAGE RED ON PURPOSE. Initially I thought about using different red writing utensils, but then I realized it would be more fun to paint. I pulled out my box of acrylic paints and grabbed all of my reds, plus a metallic copper to mix in some sparkle.


The red turned out great, but I still had a bit of extra paint to work with. I went forward a couple of pages to THIS PAGE IS FOR HANDPRINTS OR FINGERPRINTS. GET THEM DIRTY, THEN PRESS DOWN. I added a bunch of red hand prints and fingerprints as my first layer. I still need to decide what else I want to do with the page. Here’s a glimpse of what it looks like so far.


That’s all I have for now. Come back for more updates next Wednesday! Be sure to check out my Instagram account for more photos from this week’s wreck.
