Do Over of the Ugliest Journal Page Ever or What Was I thinking???

Carolyn encouraged me out of my funk from being sick to get out a few paints and redo the ugliest journal page I ever made.  Not ever sure what I thinking at the time but you will see it was something out of a bad 1950’s horror flick. Aqualung meets camera man???  Even that makes me laugh.  Now I am not sure I really even like the redo but I’m going with it.  At least it’s cheerier than Aqualung Camera Man…

Here is the new IMG_8283

She’s a little bit funky but at least she’s sweet.  And here is the old.


I recently looked through all my journals and this by far is the scariest whatever that has shown up.  At least he’s not in my head anymore.  Go see what everyone else is redoing over at Carolyn’s you can get to the link up here.

    Looks like Aqualung cameraman was anatomically correct (grin).

    Glad you are feeling better, and things are looking up for you.

    Oh what a make over! She’s so sweet and lovely, super to re-cycle an old piece like that and make such a happy sweet lady out of it. Though I’d beware of her, now I now there is Camera Man inside, ha, ha!

    OK, I don’t think the old page is terrible, BUT, I still think it was smart to follow Carolyn’s advice and cover the worst you have. That new page is a BIG SMILE! Glad you’re recooped. I know what you mean about a little funk- that’s me right now too.

    I think Mr. Man is terrifying.
    I love your happy heart lady, her hairdo and her lovely hat, but now I’m a bit worried about what Kat said.

    That certainly IS quite a transformation.
    Your post made me giggle because I think we can all relate to the WHAT WAS I THINKING moments.
    It is good he’s out of your head and has moved on to a kinder gentler looking persona 😉

    Love the redo! And yes, the first one was kinda scary. Glad you are finally feeling a bit better.

    A very smooth move from scary to sweet! Love this transformation!
