Remember that strange little bird from yesterday? It didn’t turn out the way I wanted. Though I wanted to totally go with the flow on this project, that felt like a mistake, and I didn’t want to keep it. Fix a mistake in a project with an artistic do-over

When you make a mistake or want to start over on a slow art project, you have a few options for an artistic do-over:

  • paint over the area with white or black paint
  • cover it with gesso
  • cover it with fabric
  • cover it with scrapbook paper

I chose scrapbook paper to cover up my problem area. using scrapbook paper to cover an artistic mistake

I cut out a piece that was big enough to more than cover the bird.

Then I cut it a little closer to the edges of the doily shapes.

I used Mod Podge once again to glue it down. finished slow art project

Because this was the “end” of my project, though I’m pretty sure it’s not really done, I went ahead and put a coat of Mod Podge over the whole thing to give it a consistent look.

I really enjoyed this process and I know I’ll be making more slow art soon. I hope you’ll give it a try, and, if you do, that you’ll share your results with me.

I think this is an excellent way to get into creativity in a way that doesn’t take too long each day and doesn’t require a lot of thought, planning or supplies. It’s really great all around!
