Failure as part of the creative process

I'm not saying that this experiment is a failure, on the contrary, I feel that I gained from understanding when an idea does not work.

 These are examples of the old book and pages that I've created.
My thought was to use these mock pages as background for my comic.

At first I was really excited with this idea, but I now see that it's not working with the art style because the illustrations have a fluid glass look that does not lend itself to the crinkled paper.

However, I can see using this "book" as background for other drawings and possibly turn it into an other project, so it's not all lost.  Besides, trying things out even if it doesn't work is part of the creative process.
