|Once Upon A Time|
This weekend I started a pen and ink page with some stars and a farmhouse scene, but wasn't all that happy with it. So I decided to "refurbish" the red farmhouse and put a schoolhouse in its place. Now I'm entering it into the BBArtisans Team Challenge, Back to School, hosted by Erika (Artful Rising).
That's the great thing about mixed media. You can change your mind and redo just about anything. The more layers the better! At least, in my humble opinion. This page began as "Once Upon a Time" and ended up as "Starry Schoolnight".

What I did: glued a cute little schoolhouse in place, along with some other papers I found in my stash of goodies. I usually don't cut into my art journal itself, but felt this page needed some attention to the reds, so I got out my scissors and cut some of the paper away. And here's my end result; a dreamy mixture of reds and yellows; pen and ink on paper.
