Wreck This Journal

I admit it, folks, I’ve hopped on the bandwagon. I am officially a Wreck This Journal junkie.
If you didn’t know yet, there is this book out there by Keri Smith that demands that you completely (yet artistically) trash it. Each page contains a series of directions on what to do with the book next in order to “wreck” it… all sorts of zany things from coloring outside the lines to making a drawing with pieces of hair. The book is slowly gaining a cult following. If you search the net, there are thousands of pictures and examples of very cool ways to complete the different pages.
Soon after acquiring this book I was hooked. The concept is very freeing, and it’s got me doing art more often and keeping my skills sharp, which is always good. Also, the idea that you create the art naturally and by chance is very exciting for me. The more you work with the book, the more it develops in an often unexpected direction.

I am excited to finally reveal a brand new wind chime! I created this one out of seashells and driftwood that I found at a recent trip to Charleston’s own Folly Beach this summer. I call it my “Bone Chime” because the sound of the shells kind of sounds like bones clanging up against each other… not like I would know what that sounds like or anything.

So I have a confession to make, I’m obsessed with something weird again, and this time it’s Play Doh.
