rejuvenating my art journal

This square journal has lots of my favourite pages in, but some pages that I didn't like so I decided to give one of the spreads a Stampotique revamp ('cos that's where you'll find me every Friday). This one started off covered with torn text paper over which I'd rolled a marble dipped in paint.  I was trying out different things!!

Not liking it I gessoed over most of it, leaving some of the page with the original paint, and gessoed over it again, and again!  Some splatters of blue ink (because the bottle was a bit clogged up) and some transfer letters and I was beginning to like it!

Now there's a reason why you must never work on an extremely tidy desk (well, that's my excuse anyway!).... I had this bright pink painted paper nearby so stamped up a few 'time square' and added them to my page, along with some hydrangea punched flowers and an apt quote!!

  1. Sarah, this looks fabulous now - I am sure it did before too, really! I am with you on the never working in a tidy space... lol!

  2. The pages look fab Sarah. I still have the journal we made at the Stamp Attic and love looking through it.

  3. This is just a beautiful "remake," Sarah! Love that bright pink as an accent. Off to check out what FRIDAY GIRL (aka Girl Friday) has to say on the Stampotique Designers' Blog! Mwah! KayW

  4. Love your bionic page with it's new parts - love the bright pink scraps that you 'found'!!! Chrisxx
