This is one of those pages that I had high hopes for but that let me down. I mean, it's okay but just didn't pop out and smile at me like I thought it would.
Whenever I paint the background on my pages, I stick a couple of scrap pieces of paper behind them. I reuse them and the present one was getting actually quite pretty so I decided to use it as the border for this spread. Somehow, it just didn't look so pretty when I got it on there.
Then I made a mess outlining the Emerson poem. The red got on my little finger and I smeared it everywhere.
Finally, I just stopped working on it and said to hell with it. Time to move on to a new page.
