The Eye Sees Everything


I cut part of a face out of a magazine and glued it onto a page in my journal. Using the DecoArt chalky paints, everlasting, timeless and delicate. Randomly added tissue tape and then painted from the media range with transparent yellow oxide, translucent white and raw umber watered down to make it transparent. Stamped various images in timber brown stazon until I was happy with the layout. 


Added more translucent yellow oxide to help to blend the stamping into the page and coloured the white of the eye with a sharpie pen. Next I mixed raw umber with tar gel and dripped it onto the page. 


Once dry, (I left it overnight) I added interference gold to the dark splodges and gave the page a coat of soft touch varnish to seal it.

PaperArtsy have a theme of paper piecing this week.
