At Inspiration Avenue this week they are having a "Show and Tell" session, so I thought I would share a few pieces that I had blogged on my other blog (when I had 2 blogs) which was for "creepier" stuff. That blog was called "In the Corner of My Eye", and it allowed me to explore the darker side of my imagination. I mostly did collage, fancy cutting and working on A6 card pieces.
This first piece was inspired by the prompt word "Mirror"
I don't like mirrors...I always expect to see someone behind me...and they don't work right. When I stand in front of a mirror why can I see things reflected that are to the side of the thing and not just in line with it??? It just creeps me out :/ (See ...something even weirder about me you didn't know :D)
This second piece was inspired by the prompt "Timeless Elegance"
The background is a photo I took while walking, and the elegant ladies and the clock face were printed on vellum before being cut out and glued. Loved that effect, I think this was actually the first collage of this style that I ever made.
..and this is probably one of the most "not sure how to take this" ones I ever made. The background image is a photo I took of a plastic statue in a theme park, and it looked like a very pious but very creepy monk. I cut out an image of a beautiful angel and over-laid it. I think I was trying to show the different ways people interpret religious devotion, and that there can be a dark as well as a good side to any intense belief.
I have to say I have really enjoyed revisiting these old friends...and all the others I haven't posted here :D
Enjoy...or maybe not mwahahahahaha........:D XXX
