Friday

Saved by a white pen...


Saved-by-a-white-pen-journal-pages

So I've been enjoying working in my art journal every night...throw on some colour and see how it looks in the morning. :) 



Anyway, you know how it is with mixed media as you start layering...

"Oooh....looking so good! I love gelatos!"
"Hmmm...maybe it needs a little something extra...I'll try..."
"Crap! Now it looks like shit..."
"Thank you gesso...now it looks like that mess never happened..."
"Goodbye gelatos, I'm going in with my Neocolor crayons..."
"Oh yeah, this is sooooo much better...I'm so getting in the zone..."
"I think I'll stop now...what the [censored curse word]!Where did that blob come from?"
"Maybe some patterned paper to cover up? 
"That was a good save. It looks somewhat decent again."
"I think it needs a shadow effect...oh, I hate it...but it's a pencil, I can erase it..."
"Damn cheap eraser...I'll just try the smudge look..."
"Now it needs some sort of an outline...aha...I'll try my white pen."


"Why did I go in with the white pen? Now I have to outline EVERYTHING!"
"This is so not happening...I'm calling it a night." [Really sad music plays in the background...]


Next morning...
"Hey, it looks pretty decent."


Yeah, me, the drama queen. [cue laughter]

Happy weekend friends! :)

This is a delightful post....so funny....so true. Crafters all seem to suffer from touch-itis. I always seem to hear a little voice in my head (maybe it's my husband)saying, "Stop already before you wreck it!" It's nice to know you also have the same affliction. This time your save with the white out pen was a beautiful resolution. Funny I just bought a white out pen to cover up my boo-boos and now I know what else I can do with it. Thank you for the entertaining post and crafty idea.
