Art Journal Page 159

Hi again everyone!

Today's blog is yet again another journal page!

I don't think I like this page, only because of the colours I used for the notes as well as adding the blues & greens over the top of the background. They just don't go together at all.

Once upon a time I used to just gesso over a page I didn't like and start again, but nowadays I think it's all part of the process. Some days we have it and some days we don't! Life's like that.

I started out with some script and sheet music, so then I decided the page would be about music. Once the background was done and I created the "music notes" I then introduced the blues and greens to the background over the shades of red - bad mistake, as it just did not look good. But I pushed on and completed the page anyway!

For the quote I googled "music note quotes" and the quote I used came up within the search. Sometimes I find a quote I really like while I'm googling and plan a page around the quote.

Sometimes that can be a challenge though as my pages don't usually turn out the way I intended when I plan them.

Tomorrow's page will be better, I hope LOL
