KERI SMITH COLLECTION

12 August 2014

I've loved Keri Smith's books for a long long time, but I've never really implemented my love IN them because they take a while and I usually had other art that I'd rather do because it took less time [lazy I know..] However, when I saw that Spinebreakers were holding a Keri Smith giveaway to win her entire backlist I FINALLY got out my barely used Wreck This Journal and got wrecking. And this is what I came up with:
And...I won! [Which you would know if you'd read my last post. *cough*. So now I have the entire Keri Smith collection which means a LOT of hours documented into those pages, I don't know how long it will take me to complete them all..all i know is it will take a long time. Am I ready for this challenge? We shall see. The problem is, once you start you can't stop, Keri Smith's books are addictive - and i start college in less than a month...
Have you got any of Keri Smith's books? And do you enjoy them? Have you completed any of the prompts? Or are you daunted by the time commitment?

  1. I have Finish This Book and Wreck This Journal, and I still haven't finished both. I think I"m going to pick it up sometime again, as it really is a lot of fun.

  2. HAWWA THESE PAGES ARE ALL TOO AWESOME. :') And yep, they definitely are addictive. I loooove my copy of The Pocket Scavenger – I've done so many of the pages now.

    1. THANK YOU RUBY and ooooh, i think you need to e-mail me photos SOON. I've only done like..four[ish] pages of mine which you've already seen from my review. :P
      I like, Wreck This Journal, Everything is Connected and How to be an Explorer of the World the best I think :) But they're all amazing.

  5. Aren't Keri Smith's books pure bliss!?! I love my Wreck this Journal Everywhere, it's so much fun - extremely time consuming though like you said, each page took around an hour or more of my life haha! Great pics of your pages so far, especially that patterned B/W handprint one! I'll have to do a post like this soon, just waiting 'till I get round to completing a few more pages. Great post! (Oh, and love the new blog look - especially the green, so PURTTY!! <3)

    1. Bliss+time consuming. What?! The Wreck This Journal Everywhere is so small and heck, if it takes you that long to do a small pocket sized journal, JUST WAIT. To be honest it does take me about two hours to properly finish normal Wreck This Journal..
      Yes. DO IT. I want to see what you've done and thank you. :))

  6. Ugh, I'm so jealous of you! I've wanted Keri Smith's books FOR SO LONG but tbh, I didn't even know she had so many other ones out! So knowing that now, I'm even more jealous of you! They'd be really great to do over the summer but I can definitely see how they can be addicting. I love what you've done with the pages so far and is it okay for me to ask for updates every so often? :D

    1. I'M SORRY. Do you have money. Or are you in the perpetual state of broke-ness most teenagers find themselves dwelling in?!
      I did but I had never bought them because I thought there was no point spending so much money on all of them when I hadn't barely touched the surface of the Wreck This Journal I had. I don't know when I'll even start the other ones because I want to finish my Wreck This Journal first and that may take a good 5 years. Probably more. I'LL BE DOING THEM AS A PENSIONER.
      You may. But I have to do some more first..:P

    2. *sigh* Unfortunately I am perpetually broke. But I probably wouldn't get them all at once either. I'd like to finish Wreck This Journal first before I got to any of the other ones. I feel like I'd be cheating if I just skipped around and did random pages from random books.

      HAHA. Maybe...

  7. Dude. I LOVE your design. The header is so gorgeous I can't even asdjkfl;

    Okay, I'm done fangirling.

    Believe it or not, I haven't heard of Keri Smith before. But I HAVE heard of Wreck This Journal, so you can put that baguette away, now. Love what you did with the journal, too -- it's no wonder you won. Seriously, I wish I had artistic talent like you so I could do something cool like that.

    I'm considering getting myself a copy of Wreck This Journal because I know a couple of people who have had so much fun with theirs (like you!), and I want to see what all the fuss is about, too! Your post definitely had me inspired. :D Thanks for sharing, Hawwa aka Zuzana. ;D
