Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop

Greetings,

This is my entry to the Smeared and smudged August blog hop Hurrah!

I have used Specimen Jar by smeared ink printed on acetate, I coloured the wings of the moth and butterflies with markers and then bleached back some of the colour. I then mounted it on bark background paper that I had put a few pieces of old book print on. I painted over the pages with a thin layer of concrete fresco paint. I wanted something to highlight his eye so I used a piece of a book page untreated.

Now do go forward to the other magnificent bloggers.
