Seriously Wrecking Week 8

I had a very productive week of wrecking for Week 8. I can't believe we are almost done. I left some of the really hard ones for the last week...but I'm feeling it, so I think some major wreckage and rumpusing will be happening in Week 9. Stay tuned!

I made a secret message that I put in an envelope that I made and glued to the back of the journal. When I'm done with my WRECKING, then I can open my secret message.

Then I did the NEGATIVE THOUGHTS page.

It is a dangerous page - I was surprised at how mean my inner critic was being. I didn't like that I filled the whole page with negative thoughts.

So I decided that I would take that page out and teach it a lesson.

So there.

I received my exchange page this week and WOW! is it BEAUTIFUL! Carrie sent me a lovely note and this beautiful outline of her hand. I love the black and white-ness of it. And I love the delicate doodles and artistry of the page. Thank you, Carrie!

I added her page to my journal.

I decorated the back cover some more.

Some scratching with my letter opener. I cut all the way through the page. Oops! Hee hee!

I started doodling over one of the pages...still working on it.

I glued some pages together...

I played more with my water color crayons and my tiny water color set on the test page...

Glued some words from a magazine page...

Added some more end color...
