Hide your mess!

December is gonna be fun for a bunch of reasons.

It’s probably gonna be messy and unexpected and then fun again. Kind of like my art journaling.

Sometimes I start a two page spread I am sure is gonna be amazeballs —— then—– the ” oh no what happened here. I am not sure where it went wrong but wrong it went” –moment. When that happens I cover it / adjust it / alter it or leave it. …. if none of that works,

I HIDE MY MESS and begin on a new page.

Here’s a pic of a two page spread that didn’t work and so is now the base layer of a new spread.

I covered the pages with a heavy body gesso. Textured it with an old comb and a water glass. Then used an acrylic glaze to color it. A magazine text cut out completed my vanishing trick.

Don’t despair …. repair.

Xoxo

I am a mixed media artist. An art journal gypsy who finds beauty in the perfectly imperfect (even before it was cool)!! I choose to cheerfully create imperfect art while traveling and at my studio in Idaho when I'm not.
