Wreck This Journal by Keri SmithFor anyone whos ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes 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 to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Acclaimed illustrator Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in destructive acts-poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, and more-in order to experience the true creative process. Readers discover a new way of art and journal making-and new ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

Have you seen these yet? Wreck this Journal has been expanded and given several new covers to choose from. I am very pleased with how they turned out! My personal favorite being the paper bag. But interestingly it is the red one that people are responding to the most.

Canadian artist Keri Smith instructs users to take their journal for a walk, poke holes in pages, paint, draw, color, rip, stomp, freeze, throw, and so much more. These prompts encourage readers to embrace their own creative processes and reinforce a culture of finishing what is started. The older of my two children, my son, was 3 at the time and was constantly being overshadowed by his younger sister, both because she was younger, requiring more parental care, and because it was increasingly obvious she was developmentally delayed. He needed something that was just for him and Mommy. I had no idea how to fill the long hours from sunrise to sunset, and more importantly keep him engaged and learning. It clicked. Wreck This Journal comes with a fairly arbitrary age limit, 8, a label I assumed was placed on the book only because younger children would be unable to read the wrecking prompts.
