Follow your heart

I often will build an art journal page and then decide later to add some journaling to it, or add a little something more to it. I read something on Facebook where someone said that it's hard to know when to stop. I find for myself, I often stop too soon. 

For example, I stopped before I added the tissue paper. And then I stopped again after tinting the ribbon. There was just something missing, and the muse just kept pushing to load up the page, but I wanted something with lots of white space. So I stopped. Again.

And then I decided to put drops of a contrasting colour, some of the new Ranger Distress Ink in the Salty Ocean colour. And then I was happy. It was just enough.

Layers to love
Do you follow the same type of process? Do you stop, then start again, over and over until you are happy? Do you leave artwork for a while and come back to it later to complete?
