Peering over the parapet


I had no idea where this page was going until I stuck the gelli-printed scrap on at the bottom right. It was turquoise with yellow/green eye shapes. They just wanted to be eyes!

But that makes it a strange place to put a face on the page. When I finished the face it looked as if it was peering over a wall. It made me think about how, some days, it feels as if we are peering over the parapet and dodging bullets. Some days you would just rather be in bed.

  1. I really enjoy how you journaled all around her head/head band. Great colors as well!

  2. "They just wanted to be eyes!" - hehe, that made me chuckle - but I know exactly what you're talking about. It's so interesting how different things emerge. Way to 'go with it!' Beautiful page :)
