Lotstodo Week 8 - The Eyes Have It


The background for this piece is the same as last weeks entry using the acrylic dabbers and corrigated cardboard. I coated the 'red' plastic frame with pearl acrylic, left it to dry, added some copper wire and beads and printed the quote 'seeing is not always believing' onto safmat. I stamped the eye image, using black stazon, onto a piece of background paper that I'd prepared when playing with my leaves and adirondack colour washes, for technique click here. The flourishes and moon are die cut from a coke can and the button has been painted silver. I meant to give the metal a bash with my textured hammer but I'd already stuck it down before I realised I'd not done it!!!!
