Tear strips and staple the pages together

Straightforward instructions today! The strips tore very nicely, maybe a bit too nice ;-) The next page was quite the opposite of tearing it up...

Tear this page out

Put it in your pocket. Put it through the wash. Stick it back in.

Today's laundry day! And in my jeans pocket I put this page. Most of the time if I've left a piece of paper in my pocket all of my laundry is covered in teeny tiny pieces of paper. But I put it in my jeans and turned it inside out hoping there would be something left when the washing machine is done!

And that's the result. I don't think I can stick it back in like this.. I might have to stick in on a new piece of paper. It's wrecked all right!!

Tongue painting

1. Eat some colorful candy.
2. Lick this page.

While grocery shopping today I popped over to the candy store and bought a lollipop for myself. Not just a regular lollipop but the one that colors your tongue! When I was little these were treats at birthday parties and such but now I had really look hard to find them!
As soon as I got home I had a taste and a bright blue tongue (and teeth and lips). Time for some tongue painting!!

Ask a friend and trace your hand

I went to my parents this weekend and while I went shopping with my mum I left the journal with my brother. I had a look at his journal and it looks more wrecked than mine but he still has some work to do!
When I came home this page had some sort of an imprint that looked a lot like the street. He had the journal with this page on the street and drove over it with his longboard. It actually looks a bit like the texture of my wallpaper, lol.

Some other pages were done as well....

I used to make drawings like this a lot when I was in primary school.

And I traced my hands. I did one nail with nail polish because I thought that would be fun but the tvshow I was watching became too interesting because I after the one nail I didn't finish the others.

Maybe I'll take it with me in the shower tonight...

Add your own page numbers

It was time for some page numbers! I started numbering from the first page and not this one. After all the first 8 pages also belong to this journal don't they? And I didn't number all the pages yet, I did number one whole page though.. And it was fun to use these stamps I used so much as a child.

Drip something here...

This evening I actually wanted to sew a bit on my sewing machine but it didn't work properly. And since I couldn't fix it tonight I tried to wreck another page in the journal! I already doodled and colored on the instruction page this week but hadn't done a page with real instructions.
Instructions are to make a print on the page by dripping something on one page an close the book. I recently bought some new paint which was very runny and when I opened the tube the paint was immediatly dripping all over my hands. Perfect! So I dripped some paint here and there and closed the journal. This is the result:

I must say it is liberating 'wreck this journal'. On the first page you have to write your name in various ways. One is using very large letters and of course the last letter of my name doesn't fit on the page anymore. I hate it when I have to fill out a form or something and it is not how I would like it to be, the lines are too short or something. In this case I hated it too but it doesn't matter! Just let it go because it is not supposed to be pretty!
