Cover Up

October has been a particularly awful month for me. Some times when I have too much go wrong and I can't focus on the important stuff in life I get so overwhelmed that the only way out for me is to write my way through the crap.
This is what I found myself doing in my lovely new Moleskine . I knew I did not want all that rotten, miserable stuff on these pages. It was either stick the pages together or do some type of cover up. As things started to improve for me I decided to write the positive stuff over the top of my depressing entries. I wrote with a different pen in a different colour and direction. Then I wrote things about me in coloured pencils in random directions, and drew and stamped a bit. Only I know what lies beneath the surface and I can reflect when necessary Knowing I have not ruined my Moley.

I'm sorry to hear of your tough month, and think this overwriting is a fabulous idea for "getting on top" of things! Nice art, too!

Boy you took a tough thing and made a wonderful page...I love your idea of writing over the bad stuff with the good....very symbolic and it makes a great looking page. Did you do the drawing before or afterthe writing?

What a wonderful way to erase the bad times. Glad things are better and thanks for sharing the method.

A great way to handle fluctuating emotions... and it made an interesting visual page too. :) Hope things continue to go better for you.
