Last post I talked about some my boring journal pages and what I did to spice them up a bit.
I also created some “ugly” journal pages and wanted to deal with those as well.
Here is an example of what I mean by an ugly page:
The colors aren’t vibrant, everything is sort of faded out and overall there is no harmony to the page.
So there are a couple of things I do with pages like these – one thing to do is pretty obvious – cover them up!
Here’s a page where I did just that – there is no way to tell what was underneath this collage.
It also gave me a chance to take a pen & ink sketch from another “working” journal and add to my “art” journal. I could still do more to this page to make it more interesting, but at least the offending “ugly” page is now gone forever!
Another solution is to partially incorporate some of the old page elements with some new elements.
Here is a page where I did that. This was originally another ink blot that I didn’t like, but I was able to add the rabbit pencil sketch and some other color elements to end up with a page I now like.
Do you have some “ugly” pages that are crying out to be transformed? Go for it!
