This week was my Wreck This Journal transformation! I have enjoyed the wreckage the past few weeks, but have done so with great hesitation. With each page I second guessed my artistic abilities and then confirmed my feelings of inadequacy when I compared my results with the highly creative pages posted on others blog posts.
But this week something changed. For the first time I saw the project more as a liberation of my fears and anal tendencies than the visual appeal of the final product. With this mind shift came a whole new level of wreckage.

My *favorite* journal activity of the week: I took it for a drive! This not only caused some nice wreckage of the back cover, but it was a *huge* step for me. I can’t believe it, I drove around my neighborhood with my journal dragging behind my car. Yes, I did get some strange looks, and yes, I did think about what I would think if I saw someone with a journal dragging behind their car, but I didn’t care because I was doing it the name of wreckage! 🙂
Let the wreckage continue…
