Another Journal Spread

Last night I took hours to work on this piece I will probably never show anyone!! Once I got about three quarters done I took a good look and it was awful.. worse then a kindergarten kid would do... Do you ever have pieces like that? You think them out in your head and then go to work on them and they don't look anything like what it looked like in your minds eye. I had it all thought out and what I got is not what I thunked. LOL

so anywho I went back to basics and went with the comfortable and did this spread to soothe my bruised ego..I grabbed my trusty watercolor crayons and created this gal.. The background is Watercolors and Acrylics. I love combining them.

Hey!! Thanks for stopping by


  1. I don't know if I've ever said this before, but you have a GORGEOUS page background! Ickupilli is definitely the best...also use one of this artist's on my blog!

    Thanks for sharing the story of the piece that didn't come out as you'd intended. This happens to everyone at one point or another--and I know from my own experience how frustrating that can be! So many bloggers out there only show or discuss the pieces that came out perfectly, and pretend as though they never create a piece they're not happy with. It helps a lot for it to be acknowledged that everyone struggles with this at some point!

    Lovely journal page--your faces are ethereal and so expressive!

  2. She's pretty I like the blue for her eyes and hair and how you made her lips. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow... she is gorgeous Robyn..i like your background too and the journaling you added!
    I have that feeling a lot,lol...when crafting,so i do know what you mean.
    Thanks for sharing
