Changed by what we see...

art journal entry.
I saw an advert on ITV about
more than television.
Sir Trevor McDonald's
words at the end are powerful
& I knew they would work
perfectly with the Visible Image stamps.

Golden Light Molding Paste
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink;
Mermaid Lagoon / Peacock Feathers
Blueprint Sketch / Chipped Sapphire
Accent colour - Rusty Hinge
Stamps added on tissue paper, 
eyes coloured with posca paint pen
Stamp set - Visible Image - Face It!
Face coloured with more D/Oxides;
Tattered Rose / Worn Lipstick
plus a t/rose, r/hinge mix,
to create a skin tone.
Inks applied using acetate for the background,
drying between each colour.
Face was coloured using a waterbrush.
