Sometimes Mistakes Can Be Wonderful!
I can't tell you how many times I started and stopped this painting. I thought I'd ruined it when I put the first tissue paper on with modge podge and it started to peel every time I painted on it. I'd given up and put it away and worked on it every so often to try out different techniques I had seen on tutorials and in books. I tried different pens, and inks and watercolors, watercolour pencils, india ink, gel pens and acrylic paint. After about five or six times of working on it, I decided it was actually going somewhere. So lesson learned.....sometimes it's worth just letting it go and sit somewhere and let it be, till the next time. I find that I rush through trying to create something in the alloted time I give myself, only to end up with something that was rushed and finished! So.......now I will take my time and be patient and end up with something I am really happy with!
