For week 3 of the Next Chapter‘s Wreck This Journal adventure I played with getting a little more messy. I dabbled in food stains, dragging the journal and other fun stuff.
My partner in crime, Emmett, helped me drag the journal down the street in the video below.
We didn’t get very far before the string snapped, but the cover certainly got scuffed up. I think it ended up for the best that the journal detached from his leash. I didn’t think through the positioning and he ended up peeing on the string which was really gross.
I warmed up to the food mess by putting a few stains on my stain page. Who knew that blueberry soy yogurt has such adhesive properties? The pages were glued together after the yogurt dried.
While savoring a tasty raw food meal from Cafe Gratitude, I figured I’d commemorate the delicious lunch in my journal (even though it says to document your dinner – so rebellious! Haha!). I smeared on some raw pasta puttanesca zucchini noodles and fake meatballs and garnished with a sprig of watercress from the side salad.
I took my journal with me to intuitive painting class. Instead of using a paper towel to dab my brushes, I had fun using my test page. I will continue to use this page for my paintbrushes for the rest of the book club.
My leftover paints made a colorful palatte for my handprints!
And finally after this week’s mess, I cleaned off my journal in the shower! Haha. Really, I had been avoiding this because I hate water-logged pages. Oh well!!
I love Jamie’s vlog post about attachment this week. Great insights, Jamie.
