AEDM 2011: Day 22 When I should read more carefully

Every day in November for Art Every Day Month I post what I created the day before.
This is my working table on the 21st. Yes, I´m using three different areas.
When I was going to put my painting mat underneath my journal I saw someone. Do you?
He looks kind of a gringo playing mexican. Big glasses, big sombrero. In a Gorillaz in Demon Days kind of way.
Ok, back to work. For the second time this week I´m working inspired by Donna Downey. She made her collage for her Collage Mondays. I loved the concept of the circles with the drippy paint. Delicious. Only I should have read more carefully. She used golden yellow india INK.
She didn´t get the "why doesn´t it move?" moment because inks are FLUID. *sigh* Trust me when I say this colour is Caribean green, with a turquoise quality- Background paper is a 2006 Classic Paper Collection by Sweetwater, gone over with "light skin" wash. Three different punches. By the time I realized why mine was different I totally skipped the masking tape, the ink blots and the side strip.
Edited to add: Guess what! When I had a better look at it I noticed ... I had used the journal upside down! Not that bad though, it looks as if you are watching under water how someone is throwing stones. You know that sssssssssssssssplash, bubble, bubble, bubble, drop, slurp sound.

Great projects, Paula. I like how you are drawing out the hidden people in your art backgrounds. Your Donna Downey inspired piece looks okay to me. I would never have known you had missed out steps. Tomorrow is another day ~ xo

you get so much done every day.... I need you to come and organise me so I'm not madly trying to get everything together at the last minute xx

Even if it's not what you had in mind, I think it turned out great. Art is all about experimenting and it's those surprising "accidents" that make it magical!
