Tag For Mixed Media Place

"Looking" is not the same as "seeing".
I like to embrace "difference". I love that our world is so diverse, and I guess that all starts with how we "see" things. We can all "look" at the same objects, images and even situations, but we will all "see" different things, what they are and what they can become.

Take a chipboard tag, some Finnabair Vintage Trinket Bottle Caps, some Finnabair art basics Gel Medium, some glass beads and a few metal bits and pieces and what I see will be totally different to what others will see.
Take a second look and see something different again......
This tag has a "moving part."

A little loop of leather keeps one eye shut.

 The glass bead tear was shaped with 3D Matte Gel and the glass beads dropped on.
 Glass beads and metal coloured with distress stains; coated first with Finnabair art basics clear gesso to allow stains to adhere.
All Finnabair art basics Gells and Gesso from Mixed Media Place. 
"There are various eyes,
Even the Sphinx has eyes;
and as a result there are
various truths, and as a result
there is no truth."
                Friedrich Nietzsche

Thanks for visiting. Remember to look closely, see clearly, but know there is always more.
