Wrecking Week 3

The Wrecking Zen Master & The Cowgirl

I thought it was funny that as I was writing last week about my inhibitions in the destruction of my journal, my 12 year old daughter was behind me engrossed in this project. She was supposed to be getting ready for ballet class but she took the little piece of white cardboard out of the packaging of her tights and began to draw on it with make-up, nail polish and hand sanitizer - just the things that she had on hand. Here I was fretting about my capabilities and I am apparently living with a wrecking-zen master.
So, I enlisted her help on some of my other endeavors. Needless to say, she has had some excellent ideas about how to wreck!!



videoShe thought to add the ears & tail to the journal so it looked like a creature and she also suggested I wear a cowgirl hat.

I'm including some photos of some of the other wrecking done this week. I "scrubbed" the page with a Mr. Eraser and made star shapes, ripped some strips and doodled & cut the edges among other things.





I'm looking forward to next week's wrecking and so is my Wrecking Master!

It looks like you and your daughter shared lots of laughs! I love the jazzy music you added to the video. It added to the overall "funness." Pretty sure I made that word up. Anyway, great job with the ears and the tail. I think roping like you were a cowgirl was priceless! Nice wrecking!

I love the people are getting their kids involved! My daughter took one look at my book, even before we started and said she wanted to do her own. She has been Wrecking away! I need to steal a few shots of it so I can share with everyone!
Artful Wrecking Blessings!

I love the ears and tail! Good for your daughter!

My daughters are teaching me to be more free with mine too. We played a rousing game of "tether-book"!

Living with your daughter must be such an inspiration. Brilliant to do a video on talking it for a walk/drag/. What did the neighbors think? Or is your reputation already sullied in the neighborhood?
