Moleskine: Eyes II

"She had stars in her eyes"
5 x 8 Moleskine Journal

Finished! Close inspection reveals dictionary pages with the words, "Eye" and "Star" as the base, upon which several layers of painted and brayered (if this is not a word, it should be ;) on acrylic, water-soluble crayons and gel pens are added. The cut out image of the chair on the right is from The Graphics Fairy. Other details include an eyebrow formed with the words, "A small piece of combustible composition - resembles a star" in addition to various swirl and star stamps, metallic gold and white gel pen, Stickles glitter and (surprise, surprise) Swarovski crystals . . . xo

Love this: love the blues, love the sparkle, love that the eye is so big and doesn't need a face there to give it reason to be, love the way the chair fades out on the side. The chair makes the painting speak to me as a fairy-tale reading time.

I think you should try the small piece of wood thing (I thought you already did : ) ) And glad you think my dandelion is FAB!! : )

I know, i love when I KNOW something is done, but today I totally ignored it and overworked something...sigh! I'll have to fix it later. sometimes I never learn. Oh well, TG is off to bed now : )
