Wreck This Journal 5

vivatramp wreck this journal examples lifestyle book blogger uk

I'm back with another Wreck This Journal installment today and, as ever, my recent pages contain a lot of colour. I found myself experiencing a little bit of a creative slump journal-wise but I eventually picked up where I left off and had a really good time doing so. I'd love to know what you would've done with the pages so let me know below and I'll steal all of your ideas for future journals, ha!

+ sticky things on this page
I shared the beginnings of this page in my May Wreck This Journal post but I finally got round to finishing it this month. It took me five sheets of stickers and three months but I got there. Well done me! I'm pretty happy with how this page looks. It covers a few of my favourite topics: cats, space, fast food and cake. It's glorious.

+ cover this page in tape 

Luckily enough, I was gifted lots of washi tape for my birthday last month so I was able to go to town on this page. I approached this page with no idea of what I wanted to do and I think it shows. In hindsight, it probably would've been nice to have a little plan in mind but I'm happy enough with the mishmash of colours, patterns and shapes. I might tape the opposite page too. We'll see!

+ add your own page numbers
I decided to use my new pens to jazz this page up a bit. It's sort of ridiculous how long this took me but it was totally therapeutic. It wasn't difficult and it's not very inspiring but I just went with it. I just need to finish off writing page numbers throughout.

+ figure out a way to freeze this page  
I love these pages! I love Adventure Time so there seemed like only one viable option for this page, to be honest. I did toy with the idea of actually freezing the page but I thought an AT reference would be a lot more me. Big thanks to Luke for helping me out with the Ice King!

What do you think? How would you have done these pages? Leave links below if you've shared your very own pages as I'd love to see them

  2. I love what you did with literally every page of this Wreck this Journal. It's funny to see how differently people interpret the instructions! Five sheets of stickers... That's a lot of stickers, but totally worth it!
    Unfortunately (wow, that's a lot of adverbs), I'm not a UK resident so I can't participate in the giveaway... But it doesn't prevent me from thanking you for organising it :).

  3. I really love how your 'Add your own page numbers' page came out, so cool and such a beautiful idea! Everytime I read one of these posts from you I always feel the need to go back to my Wreck This Journal and give it some love again (which I never do and it's such a shame!).

  6. Loving your journal- looks super cool! I quite like the idea of something that inspires a bit of creativity as I'm about as creative as your average brick wall. I've found that taking a break from everything just lately has been the biggest help for creating blog posts and feeling engaged with the internet- since that's the only creative pursuit I have. Sometimes, it's beneficial to take a step back from the process to understand how to find fresh perspective.

  7. Love these posts Bee, I've had a Wreck my Journal for so long! I found it when I moved so I'm definitely going to start getting creative again!

  8. Honestly these posts of yours inspire me to be creative! The prompts in Wreck This Journal are wonderful, but you always seem to use them in even more beautiful ways that I could imagine. I just adore the 'freeze' one with the Ice King! :) x

  13. I love these posts and the way you're filling in the pages with whatever inspires you at the time, I don't think art should ever be about rushing something to please other people it has to come from being passionate about something and wanting to express it. Great stuff Bee

  15. Reading your posts about Wreck it Journal has seriously made me want one! I love the way you are decorating and using it - Loved the AT reference.
    Perhaps a homewear or bedroom haul? I dunno - or even a stationary haul?
    Experiment with different things which you haven't used before e.g. chalk, dye, blow pens?
    Nature inspires me to be creative, that and art galleries.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love your stationary / wreck this journal type posts - inspirational and colourful!
    The outdoors inspire me to be creative - as nature is my trigger! xx

  17. What an amazing giveaway, plus I always love seeing your wreck this journal pages - they're always go pretty!

    In answer to your questions...

    1. I'd love to see more photographs of day trips you go on
    2. Always carry a notepad and a pen with you so that you're ready when inspiration strikes!
    3. I get grumpy if I'm not being creative, so I make sure I plan and schedule so that I have time to do the things I love :) x

  18. OMG. I love the stickers pages, and the Adventure Time one. You are such an artist. I have my Wreck This Journal on the shelf, waiting, but i don't know why... i don't find it entertaining enough, or maybe i'm afraid to ruin it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm always excited to see what you come up with for your pages. Would love my own copy! x

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love your Wreck This Journal posts! I think I'd like to see more 'list' posts because I love the ones you've already put up, and writing-related posts too. The best way I stay creative is to use Pinterest - I literally go through the photography tab and pin anything that I find interesting. I then separate the pins into different boards depending on what they're relavent to. I find this best for when I'm needing inspiration for a certain thing (like a character's eye colour) as there's photos I find inspiring to help.

What you've done with the book is amazing and I can't wait to see more installments :) I try hard to be creative too, I love pictures and images and words and scrapbooking, I'm no good at drawing or painting but I'm a dab handed and cutting and sticking ;) Great giveaway too :) fingers crossed! xx

  37. I'm in loooove with that Ice King page! Really, all of these pages are wonderful. So much color. I'm not even sure what I would do on any of these topics, so I'm afraid I can't offer much insight, haha. I've been thinking about buying a Wreck This Journal for quite some time now, and your posts always inspire me to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Gotta love an AT reference, and that's a mighty fine Ice King as well! I always love your WTJ pages, as well as your blackout poetry pages. You're a creative sod, that's for sure! x

  39. I love your Wreck my Journal entries - so colourful and inspiring! I'd love to give this a go - I'm more of a writer, but love to draw sometimes too and this would be a great way of getting into the more visual side of things :)

    1. Oh I forgot this. I have no preference of what particular posts I would like to see more of. I particularly enjoy your book posts and stuff about Uni (which was helpful when I started last year!).
      Things that inspire me to stay creative:
      - Walks or the gym (creative ideas often pops up)
      - Pinterest sometimes
      -Reading

  42. Ahhh, my first comment somehow disappeared! Anyway, the posts I'd love to see more of are your lists :). As a fellow list lover, I absolutely love reading them and am always left feeling inspired afterwards! Other sources of inspiration for me always include Pinterest, old photographs, and a good cocktail or two!

  51. Your journal is amazing - so is your blog. Found you through Twitter :) I always find Booktube (and Youtube in general) so inspiring for...anything really. Always helps me to get motivated watching a few videos about the subject or project I'm doing :)

  54. I just got a "Wreck This Journal" the other day from Amazon. The one with the black cover. I cannot wait to dive into it! I try to stay creative every day by keeping a stimuli list. Books, songs, movies, quotes, articles, etc. Anything that peaks my interest. :)

  55. WTJ is firmly on my wishlist for Christmas, it's such a good idea. Gets ideas from outside-the-box-thinking. I love seeing what you've done to yours!
