Journal Wrecking!

If you haven't seen or heard of the phenomena that is "Wreck This Journal" then you really should go and check it out! I have had so much fun today as I decided to work on this page, "throw something a pencil, a ball dipped in paint."


Well as you can see I clipped the journal open with these small bull dog clips and attached some string and hung it outside (I'm not silly!) and then used three Adirondack Dabbers as darts and chucked them at the pages. The colours were Purple Twilight, Aqua and Lemonade. When my son asked what I was going to do he couldn't wait to join me!


After about 10 minutes ......... it ended up looking like this ..............



Really pleased with it! Please don't worry I usually respect books but I have permission to destroy this one. :)

Great choice of darts but you're not about to challenge Eric Bristow on the aim, I reckon :haha:

Me and the kids have a Wreck this Journal! At first they were really worried about doing anything to it as I'm always telling them to look after their books, but they soon let loose! So much fun! :) Love your colours!
