With the 4th of July weekend and an impromptu stay at the shore - I didn't get much wrecking done. I kept trying to think of a way to incorporate firecrackers & the journal and although it sounded fun - it also sounded highly illegal, dangerously unsafe and nothing I would ever document even if I was dumb enough to do it.
So, I settled for wearing the journal as you can see. This was a last minute endeavor. I ran out of tape in the middle of the project (WHY do all the craft, art and fabric stores close at 9:00pm - that's usually when I'm starting my projects). Luckily I had some spike tape (for those of you that don't know, spike tape is used on the stage to mark where the set pieces will go). It worked pretty well and best of all I think I will be able to remove it.
I also "Lost a Page." I was inspired by one of Keri Smith's other books,The Guerilla Art Kit. I doodled on the back and used one of my favorite quotes (although I did invert the words "is" and "it" - apologies to Mary Oliver). I stuck it in a book I returned to the library.
Thanks to my trip to the shore I'm starting to get a nice seaweed collection on one of the pages - but it's not quite finished yet.
That's it for this week!
