Here we are in the middle of the week..."hump day" down hill to the weekend from here.....LOL
I was re-visiting some journal pages, that I had done for a couple of challenges, that I just didn't like. Do you ever end up with these? Do you just leave them? Normally I do just let them be, as "bad art", but these two pages I just couldn't let be, they were driving me nuts!!! I know, I could just leave the journal closed, but I couldn't forget about them.......LOL
So I took some Gesso and then some acrylic paint to them, and started over. The above one was kept very simple indeed. After getting the background painted I added a napkin ( part of a gift from Chris) I did pull the layers apart and tore the edges before adhering it to the page. The sentiment is a stamp I have had for YEARS!! Now I re-visit this page and smile.
This page, from the same journal, was covered with map-like pieces and I think the challenge had something to do with travel...........(ya think??) It was all collaged down and VERY boring and said NOTHING to, or for, my MOJO. I used some Gesso on it, but left a shadow of what was under it, and a little ink smear behind the die cut palm trees (which had been made for something else, then cast aside) I took a marker and wrote escape across the page then added, yet an other cast off die cut of sun glasses, with palm trees reflected in them. The scan looks a little funny due to the fact that then lenses, of the glasses, have mirrored card stock on them. I am now happy with this page and ready to move on.
Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my re-dos on "hump day". Hope the reest of the week finds you happy and being creative.
