Description

The international bestseller For anyone who's ever had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes this expanded edition of "Wreck This Journal, " an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake and mess-making abilities and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in "destructive" acts--poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting pages with coffee, coloring outside the lines, and more--in order to experience the true creative process. With Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process."show more

Review Text

Praise for Wreck This Journal " Wreck This Journal encourages you to stop fretting about quality and start relishing the artistic process." -Oprah.com "I love this book and the playful way that Keri Smith teaches people the act of creating by putting you right on the spot. Wreck This Journal is a fun, interactive book that you will want to work in every day. To create is to destroy, and this book delivers." - D I Y Planner "No matter where you start or where you end, there's always something interesting to do. . . . The book is an exploration into creativity." - Buffalo News "The ideal gift for artistic minded people, or not, for that matter, as what I love about this book is that there is no right or wrong. Neat, messy, colorful, dark, you can wreck however you want." - Hawwa, etc. "I've kept journals before, but have never written in them as frequently as I write in my Wreck This Journal . It is great for inspiration; it gives you tasks that are thought-provoking rather than pages of endless blank lines. It is a great way to pass the time and a great gift for anyone, no matter how young or old." - Teen Ink "Wreck this Journal makes a great gift for someone who's going through a stressful time, needs a form of release, or anyone who could use a few minutes of fun." - Jactionary " Wreck This Journal encourages you to experiment and have fun. . . . Flip to any page in the book and you will find a prompt: fun prompts, destructive prompts, creative prompts to help your creative juices flow." - Craft Critique "Calling all bookworms and creative doodlers, Wreck This Journal is the perfect book to spruce up your summer. . . . It's a wonderful stress reliever and brings out the inner childish behavior we are so often told to get over. You won't be disappointed." -Kristine Marie Babauta, Marianas Variety Praise for Keri Smith "Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves." - The Believer "A conceptual artist and author luring kids into questioning the world and appreciating every smell, texture and mystery in it." - TIME Magazineshow more
