So sometimes you have a great idea.
A really great idea.
You get excited about it.
And it starts out well.
I started with a piece of paper that was not my fav
out of my CKC kit.
I put it in my CKC kit, because I wanted it to get used.
So I pulled it out.
I picked out this completely fun picture of
my grandbabe and I.
I LOVE THIS PICTURE!!
He is so amazing!!!
So I have seen a lot of circles done with sewing machine,
and I've been seeing pen drawn type circles on patterned paper
So I decided to give it a go.
So I pulled out my Tim Holtz Distress Markers
and started drawing circles on using the thin side of the markers
then used the larger felt side.
I sprayed and let the paint run.
I liked it.
I added my layers and picture,
My button border.
Made me wonder what I was thinking.
WHAT WAS I THINKING??
I added BIG sprays of mist.
It made polka dots.
I didn't like so much.
But I LOVE the picture.....
And the layers.....
And the Circles.....
But those dots.....
And the Washi just doesn't work.....
They are just a problem for me.
But I don't want to scrap the whole thing.
But those misty dots.....
What WAS I thinking?
So I had seen something on Shimelle's blog
by Ashli Oliver, pen worker extraordinaire.
So it's a little hard to see,
but I added some pen work around the misted dots.
I'm gonna keep it.
Its a good lesson for me.
I don't hate it.
I LOVE the picture,
so I'm keeping it.
Then when all else fails.....
So what do you when it just doesn't work?
Do you scrap it and start again?
Make it work?
this was a great lesson for me.
Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
