A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

Redone Journal Page

So a while ago I made a 8.5 x 5.5 journal page to send out for a swap.  I wish I had made another ask I was working on the first one.  But I documented pretty closely what I did and managed to make a 12x12 size. 

The earth gave me much more trouble this time because I made the mistake of dripping the ink right from the stopper on top of it instead of painting it on.

It made dark splatters.

It was WAY to much

I tried to rinse it out.

A hole started to form. 

Still two dark and wet.

I should have waited till it dried to fix it but I was impatient and I couldn't sleep.

So I tried white ink. 

Didn't help

I tried water color crayons

Didn't help

I tried water down gessoed and then spritzed it with more water.  I think it helped.  Helped make the hole bigger ha ha.

No it helped.  I taped the back up and with all the wrinkles you cant see the tear unless I tell you where it is.

Its in the west coast of South America.

I mentioned in the original blog that I ironed it to remove flatten.  I actually ironed it for another reason.  To remove the extra crayon wax.  It allowed me to use the white gel pen on top of it.
