I reworked the page by covering it with several different colored Gelatos, Ranger inks sprayed through stencils and then finished it off with ephemera and a title. Here is the finished journal page:
Here is the other ugly journal page that I reworked:
On this page I decided to use some modeling paste through a stencil around the edges. Then I found a painterly image of a women in my stash that I cut out of a magazine and decided to draw and paint a similar painterly panther to go with her. After the modeling paste dried I colored the page with Ranger distressing ink. I stamped a title, added the images to the page and added a quote. Here is the finished journal page.
I really like the way this page turned out and I think the title "Begin Again" and the quote are appropriate: "The world breaks everyone and afterward many are stronger at the broke places". This whole page is about beginning again, even after several disappointments and frustrations, I decided to begin again reworking this journal page into something successful. So do you rework failed journal pages or do you abandon them? I would love to hear about it. I looked at these journal pages for some time debating on whether to trash them or try to do something with them. I am glad that I decided to rework them. Until next time, happy creating.
