If you, like me, are quite creative and enjoy drawing, painting, scrap-booking etc. then I would definitely recommend the brilliant, art based books by Keri Smith: Wreck This Journal. She also has several other books based around the same idea, and I have been very lucky to have been sent them by my friends for different birthday's, and have had so much fun thinking of ways to fill each of the pages in and thought that for my first Two Uses Tuesday invitation (big thank you to Purfylle for inviting me) what better time to share my latest favourite pages with you, than this!
I've started to graffiti the cover by adding a little monster, but am hoping to add even more colour and even some fabrics at some point!
For the make a funnel and drink from it page, I decided to add a little boat and some blue and a few bubbles and stick it in there! As I was filling the cup up, the paper held it brilliantly, and then I went to take a sip and had water all down me! It was fun though - I should probably try some tougher cello-tape and glue next time though for my make-shift cup!
The idea here was to wrap something with this page, so I scrawled a top secret message and hid it away inside this parcel and tied it up with some string.
Paper Airplanes! The joys of 'wet play' days! Does anyone else remember those days at school when it was raining, so instead of playing outside you had to come in and draw? I loved those days! I covered my little airplane in chalk colours and cello-tape, so it doesn't get damaged, and stuck it inside.
I am hoping to add more colour to this one eventually so it looks more like a quilt but I took a page from another section of the book where you're supposed to rip it out and instead, tore it up and used it as the base for this challenge! The idea was to have scraps of coloured fabric which then become a brand new colourful quilt!
Does anyone else have these books? If so what are your favourite pages/challenges?
Don't forget to go over to Purfylle's blog and link up, sharing your crafty OR project based ideas! There are loads of brilliant ones over there at the moment.
Hope you're all having a good week so far!
