Odd Dreams for Blissful Art Swap
Let me begin by saying that there is, indeed, a price to pay if you spend a couple of hours watching a David Bowie tribute.
And THIS is that price, friends.
To be fair, I think this fits our theme Odd Dreams perfectly!
I mean, when is the last time you've encountered a dragon's eye that someone went all Lady Gaga on?? Just LOOK! Black glimmer eyelashes (Impression Obsession Grass Die) then tipped with gold leaf paint? Rhinestones colored black with my Copic lines the eye and gives it a little more glamor!
And the EYE. Oh, yes. The EYE.
Made from Sculpey clay by yours truly.
(Tutorial available on Claylessons.com)
Using my Tim Holtz crackle stencil, I used crackle paste and laid it thick on a piece of chipboard, then swabbed it with different shades of green ink when dry. A little black to fill the cracks and I've got a gorgeous reptile face! As you can see, the eye is BIG...so I glued it to chipboard and cut a hole in the 'skin'. I could've just glued it to the top part but I liked the dimensional effect!
Actually, I didn't think about it in time. But it worked. So there.
I have named this "Bette Davis Eye
Mostly because I couldn't think of a decent Bowie song to go with, not to mention I'm a bit 'Bowie'd' out at the moment.
Sorry this is short...I promise to be back with SOME type of humor-or reasonable facsimile thereof-in a day or so. I'm in the process of having this blawg redone and Pearl from Pages in Progress is doing a fab job with it! At a REALLY good price. If you need her, go to Freelancer.com and she'll be glad to help you. After she's done with me. ;)
