I have been waiting for the Smash book to be available in stores. The Smash book is a cool place to record your daily life or whatever you want. You can glue in images that inspire you, quotes, tickets, receipts, etc. I love that some of the pages have a design to add interest. I think if you are an avid art journaler you already do this on your own. I think this will be a great crossover product to get scrapbookers and ‘tweens into art journaling. I can’t wait to see the accessories that might be sold to go along with the Smash.
I want a Smash to keep with me to play with while waiting for appointments. I am not an art journaler who carries my journal around with me. Carrying my journal around doesn’t work for me since I am too paint intensive and a lover of working in a messy way.
Well, Smash was supposed to hit the stores in April, but there has been a production delay. So K & Company, the makers of the Smash, gave away 400 mini Smash books on this Smash blog a couple weeks ago. And I was lucky enough to get one! I just got it in the mail last night. Even the cardboard envelope was cool! This should tide me over until I get the real thing.
You can check out the Smash on this video.
