VIDEO: How To Redo A Bad Art Journal Page

Painted art journal page by Kim Dellow with die-cut circle texture

 

I do not like where this page started today, it was a bad art journal page! I know that you can’t always get it right and you have to do lots of bad art to get the good art out of you. And this definitely started as a bad art journal page for me. That is why today’s art video takes you through how I redid this page. In fact I had to redo this page a couple of times! But you will see that too. So if you have a bad art journal page in your journal that you want to redo then this will help and hopefully give you some ideas on where to start.

But more importantly I’ve also got some tips on when you shouldn’t redo the art journal page, because not all of your bad art should be covered up! There are some really important reasons for keeping some of it as it is.

As always there is the supplies list below the video and a close-up photo of the final project at the bottom of this post.
