Wreck This Journal – Pages 2 – 5

 

I’ve been working on my “Wreck This journal” nearly every day this past week and was aiming to produce a new page each day but have found that some of my pages have taken longer than a day to complete.  The good thing about this is that I am always having something creative to work on each day, though I must confess that I had a day off from creating on Friday as I felt a bit “M’eh” in general. That has not stopped me thinking about my next page though and have an idea of what I want to do so the creativity is still there!

I’ve been choosing pages at random, flicking through the book  and stopping on a random page and working on whichever one I land on and so far this has worked for me!  I’m not too sure how it will work once the book gets more full though!  And although I have only *just* started this book I’m already considering purchasing another as I have found myself thinking of other ideas for the pages I have already completed!  I’m making a rule though that I don’t make a purchase of another journal until I’m at least 75% through this one!

Anyway,  here’s the next few completed pages of mine…

Create a Non Stop Line…. This page took me around 8 hours to complete as every time I thought I might be finished I saw somewhere that I could add more detail to.  I used Staedtler Triplus Fineliner markers for this doodle as I like the narrowness of the nib, the colours and that the pens don’t bleed through the page.

Heres a close up…

Doodle Over the Top of the Title Page…  This was on a check list of other instructions to doodle on different pages…I started with the Title page as I fancied brightening that one up first.  This probably, in total, took me 3 to 4 hours to finish.

Make a Pattern

I used Washi tape for this page, choosing my favourite ones from the stack I own.  This page was super quick and easy, taking about an hour to stick the tape down and then to trim it to size and add the little square with the washi “quote” on it.

Trace Your Hand.

I used my triplus fineliner pens for this and, aside from tracing my hand, this is the first page that I didn’t really have any idea on how I wanted it to look at the end.  I doodled some squares to start off with and then continued with them, making a tile pattern.  I then used my Aquash Watercolour pencils and brush to add some colour to the tiles.

I have really enjoyed creating these pages and have more to share with you all soon!!!!  if you fancy keeping up to date with what I’m up to, head over to my Instagram account and give me a follow!!!!
