We all make ugly journal pages, it happens.
I started this page while watching Samantha Kira's vlog at journalgirl.com I was playing with my watercolor crayons and using my hands to spread the paint. I enjoyed the process but I decided I hated the shape. It reminds me of a bubblegum tumor. This lovely mental picture has been brought to you by Aly. I also hated how all the different inks I used for the fonts I think it looks disjointed. So I decided to see what I could salvage from this icky page: I liked the colors, techniques and the layout so I tried again...
And made this:
= a much nicer page with a happier journaler behind it. The calendar is actually an acrylic stamp from Michael's and I LOVE IT. Moral of the story: try to find something you like about your failed attempts and try again. I didn't rip out my ugly page or work over it, it serves it's own purpose- it's just not to be pretty =)
