The eyes have it


Another spread for my Sketchbook Project was finished today and it actually took most of the day to make as I had to wait for the various stages to dry before continuing. First I used some old magazines to make a large collage. This was then cut into two pieces for the spread and I stitched around the various shapes.

I then gessoed the pages taking care not to cover up the eyes and added fluid acrylic paints, finishing with a touch or two of gold!

The spread was glued into my sketchbook, and also stiched on (using a zipper foot so I could get into all the sides). The stamping was done with black Staz-On and alphabet stamps. The final touch was to glue on the postage stamps as shown.

This is my absolute favorite of your sketchbook page spreads. Ethereal and beautifully composed; love the color. The stitching adds such fantastic texture. I bet it's even better in person.
