Failed Art Journal Page?

04 Feb

So, a while ago I was working in my art journal.  And I mostly liked it.  But I felt that the pictures really stuck out, and I wanted to make it have a more ‘blended’ feel.  So I decided an over all stamp on the whole page would do this.  So on a red and green page, I chose to use white.  Rookie mistake.  So, not sure what to do from there, I put it aside, and have been brooding over it for months.  Here it is…

A red hot mess… So then one day it hit me.  What about an all over glaze? I could use a neutral colour, and bring the extremes closer together.  So I mixed some liquid gloss with a tiny bit of white paint, and covered the entire page.  And it did make it more cohesive.  But it washed everything out.  So I re-wrote the quote, outliked the pictures and added some doodle.  I am still not completly in love with it, but I think it’s much better.  And I learned A LOT of lessons I can use for next time… and isn’t that whaat it’s all about?

The After….
