The Upside Downers!

This page turned out to be a surprise. In an effort to cover the blue blotches in the background I dabbed paint all over the page, then used a circle template adding white paint in the open circles. I then outline the circles with a fine-point black sharpie and then decided to draw faces inside.

The SURPRISE was that I had turned the journal upside down and now all the faces are actually upside down when I go through my book! I gasped. Thought about it for a second. Then decided that it's actually a happy coincidence that the cartoon-ish faces are upside down. So I laughed and moved on! I call this the "Upside Downers" page. Since taking this photo, I've added some journaling to the page explaining how it came to be.

Sometimes you just have to laugh!


  1. LOL. I like your Upside Downers. They made me smile! like your backround too.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I had to laugh when this happened. It's what Art journaling is all about - having fun!
