The Disappearing Man

One of the fun things about creating the altered papers is the serendipity of the results. This particular paper leached out some of the color s surrounding this figure but left an interesting outline. What better place to start creating? I have also cut several tree stamps to work with a purchased stamp to help change things up a bit. This piece uses one of my stamps.

This altered paper had the lovely greens just wanting to be some type of sky so I took advantage of the serendipity. It has a bit of land to anchor the scene but it is mostly sky and that moon. There was a bit of a blobby thing happening with the gold pen so I used it to advantage to create some interest. This is definitely a OOAK!

Cat's Eye

This eye appeared on the page and looked like an interesting place to start. A regular moon didn't look right but adding the crescent moon gave the eye an eyebrow, further enhancing the effect. Here's looking at you!

Ode to Easter Island

Do you see it? The cliff on the left looks like one of the moai - the monumental statues on Easter Island. This was a happy accident when the pages were pulled apart. I even have a mirror image for another piece of art. He is staring up at the moon - maybe dreaming of - what?
