Wreck this journal update #6

Hey there! I'm back again with another update!
So far, what i'm really loving about completing my wreck this journal with all these pages with different prompts on each one is that they are completely open to interpretation. They rely on your own imagination and creativity to bring them to life.
There's no strict rule to follow, sure there's a little phrase that kind of tells you what to do, but everyone is different in their creativity (thank goodness for that) and it's amazing to see what other's have done with the exact same page.

This first Image (above) is Ariel, if you didn't know that already... then well.. I don't know what to say to you. I somehow came to the conclusion that she would fit perfectly with the showery.. watery theme... I tried to English that.. I'm not sure it worked.

This next page is "glue in a random page from a newspaper", ya'll muggles won't grasp this page, but i just searched some articles from the daily prophet online and glued them in, making the pages look aged with black chalk.

"Sew this page" Sally from nightmare before christmas came into my mind instantly. On the far left I have a quote from the movie that reads "One person's craziness is another persons reality" 

"pretend you're doodling on the back of an envelope while on the phone " Pretty self explanatory, I used black  pen and just randomly did some designs. This pattern is literally next to most of my uni class notes. I was totally paying attention in class, I swear.

"Cover this page in white things"  I googled this before I started because i was out of inspiration. I saw one photo were someone had literally stuck a tampon on the page, rather an.... interesting approach. Using my better judgment I decided against it and instead drew all the things I could think of that were white or partially white. 

"Scribble wildy using only borrowed pens"  Pens borrowed from my lovely giver of birth.

"Page of good thoughts"  On the left I wrote down my favourite quote by J.R.R Tolkien. If you can't read it, it says "All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost ; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be the blade that was broken; The crownless again shall be King"
And on the right I wrote down some little things I like.

"Make a mess clean it up"  Evil messy minion vs silly good minion

"Glue random items here" I had just bought a new game of thrones shirt and had the tag that came with it lying around so i decided to put it to good use! 

"Color outside the lines" There was a single circle draw on the right hand side of the page, which made me think of a moon.  This would probably be my favourite page so far.

"Trace your hand" presented by Spock. 

"Cut through several layers". I knew I had to include Hugh Jackman somewhere In my journal, I mean... common. This was the perfect page for it! 

"Collect fruit stickers here" I left this page blank for a while because I literally searched through our fruit bowl with no fruit sticker in site. Typical..
Instead though I had a spare apple sticker and decided to draw Steve Jobs.

"Infuse this page with a smell of your choosing"  I decided on Miss Dior, some pink clouds and what girly page would be complete without sparkles..

That's it for my update so far!

Hope you're all having a great week and have you started/going to start a wreck this journal?

Infinite x's and o's,
