Mistakes Journal Page – What Happened

Today’s journal page started off well. I started with a Dylusions stencil and Liquitex Professional light modeling paste all over the page and left it to dry for an hour. 

 Things were going well. I broke out the Golden fluid acrylics and Liquitex acrylic inks and started playing again. Mixing colours, drying, adding more layers.  Then. Disaster struck. I moved my journal and bumped into the open jar of Liquitex green acrylic ink. I spilled ink all over my desk. (No, of course I didn’t get a picture. I was too busy scrambling to clean it up.)  

 It was a flood of green all over my desk, me, my journal, and the floor. I’ve been told I look like I’ve murdered a leprechaun. Sigh. Mistakes were made. 
 Well. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, right?
