Mix it Up Monday Challenge - Paper Issues

I played along with the Mix it Up Monday challenge over at Paper Issues, using paint from my stash to write on the cardstock background, and then added a layer of gesso.  As with most of my Mixed Media projects, this one was an adventure. Usually it's some sort of mess I create in my scrapbooking space, but this time the mess was on my actual layout! I really liked what I had made until a fellow DT member pointed out my  mistake with the word SUMMER. Notice the missing M? Ugh.

My first thought was to throw the layout in the trash. But, since I have always promoted the 'there are no mistakes in scrapbooking' idea, I decided to fix my mistake. There's nothing a few added embellishments can't correct! Right??

I layered the sunglasses, flowers etc. right on top of the misspelled word, and I almost think that you might not even notice the missing "M" if you hadn't see the original layout. Of course I'll always know what's under those chipboard pieces, but that can be our little secret ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by today!
