Hump Day RE-DOs

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.

  1. Love these Krisha! Especially the 'reflection' in the sunglasses :)

  2. Love the way the pages turned out. I've re-worked things before, and I've also used a lot of gesso to cover up what hasn't turned out!

  3. These are wonderful, Krisha. I don't care how bad my art is, I simply DO NOT go back and redo it. I'm thrilled you did, though.
