The Rejected Page

I have several pages lying around that were started and never finished. Ideas gone wrong, wasn't going according to plan, I'm sure you've all been there. Sometimes it's worth re-visiting these pages, having a play (with no expectation, so the pressure is off....always a good thing ) and seeing where it takes you.
This is my "reject" page. Done on flimsy card stock, so won't hold heavy embellishment, not even gessoed so won't support much wet mixed media either. But it does have a beautiful swish of bright orange/yellow colour......a starting point.

And here is my finished page.
To see what happened "in between" check out the Finnabair blog here for all the steps and materials used.
Thanks for visiting today. Re visit your "rejects"; you may be surprised where they take you.

International Scrapbooking Day

Yes, there is a day especially set aside for "scrapbookers".
To celebrate and promote this day, the Finnabair CT and Finn herself have joined forces with Prima to create some pages, to inspire with quotes, to run competitions and offer up some wonderful prizes.
Check out the Finnabair blog post HERE and the Prima post HERE
We were asked to choose a quote..........this is mine.
"Art enables us to find ourselves and loose ourselves at the same time"
Thomas Merton

Thanks for dropping by.
