Wreck This Journal

I really like the blog The Wish Jar. I Like it for it's out of the box creativity. The author of this blog has come up with a Wreck This Journal idea That I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with. I'm a creative person so I think I will enjoy this activity. You could use any journal but I like the blog and the idea so much that I decided to support it by pre-ordering a book here. I am so excited for it to come and when it does I want to throw it in a puddle or run over it with my car!! I cannot wait!

Here are some pictures from flickr of personal Wreck Journals.

Here is some info on "how" to wreck a journal.

Creative destruction is a term that refers to the act of making a physical change to an object, blank page or space. It is based on the premise that if you alter an object in some way, you are in fact participating in a creative experience (regardless of the outcome). The intent of creative destruction is to move beyond aesthetic judgements of whether a mark/alteration is good or bad, but instead to allow the mark to exist as documentation of a physical experience or as kind of expression. While the term “destruction” has historically had a negative connotation, in this context it is used to imply simply “alteration”.
