From the internationally bestselling creator ofWreck This Journal, a scavenger hunt that leads you to explore your world and transform your findings through creativity and chance... Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, you ll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, you ll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it pretty, and so on. The results: you ll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might t have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is utterly unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.
