The Quiet Eye Journal

Above is a new art journal cover that I made titled The Quiet Eye.  The background has evolved through many ideas and changes.  Paint, molding paste, collage, stenciled paint, removed paint and more paint and I ended up with this.  I love how this creates depth and textures, despite being in 'grey scale'.  I pierced the die cut feather and affixed bamboo sticks through openings. 
My new blog banner above features snippets from work in this journal.
This is one of the pages inside that bears the name of the journal.  I layered vellum over the title to further "quiet" it down.  I experimented with translucency in this journal.  
The top left quad is a modeling paste design upon which I affixed painted cheese cloth.  The right quad is fiber paste.  Lower left is a mosaic of squares I put together, then screen printed a grey rose over it.  The bottom right is paper from my Gelli stash, over which is a die cut floral tied with stained teabag strings and melted white wax with my initial.  I also sketched some seeds on handmade paper.

  1. I love, love, love the look of the blog - so very much a reflection of you and your art! The cover and page from the journal are exquisite. I can't wait to see more.


I really appreciate each and every comment.
