my FIRST ever movie so "be kind"!

thoughts on "wrecking" or what have I observed so far:

take the journal with you (thanks jamie!). use a different color pen, everyday. have fun with it. people will stare and wonder. use it and abuse it. have no fear. refrain from going in order of page layout. let it go.

so this book is called "wreck this journal", right? so it took a bit to get going and then I started. and then I stopped. and then I started to USE it. then I thought about how I was using it and what I was gluing into it. is this really "wrecking" or is this "art".

or have I just figured out what all of you knew from the beginning. that this is meant to be a vessel for capturing the everyday, ordinary, sometimes messy, beautiful and tragic, scribbles and giggles of our lives. wow! thank you keri smith and thank you jamie!

ciao!

Great video! I'm inspired by everyone posting videos so I think I may try to do one myself before this process is through. You've done some great wrecking!

I figure if you are using it, you are wrecking it :) I really liked the video and the music.

Loving the video and such a lovely song to! Most excellent wrecking and I so agree with you about this process. Our journals are all about us and absolutely no one else!

Loved your "first-ever" video! I shelved my journal this last week and was almost giving up on myself ~ couldn't get a creative moment going if my life depended on it. But I've been so inspired by everyone's great ideas that I think I may just take my journal back off the shelf and start over. I need to get "me" back on track!

Thanks for your inspiration.
