Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

An art journal page using the weta threadpainting I did many years ago.

I trimmed the fabric around the weta leaving about 2cm all around. Then I decoupaged napkins, painted, stencilled and sprayed until I felt that it was all looking like one piece. The saying was added with Posca pens and highlighted with gold and silver pens.

There was a light bit at the bottom which looked out of place. The napkin had an image of brown ornaments with string. The light bit was a bit of string and that gave me the idea to add some jute. I think it improved the composition of the page as well so a lucky accident.


  1. This must look amazingly dimensional in real life! Yes, I agree the jute finishes off the layout perfectly. Although still not keen on wetas!

  2. I have a love/hate relationship with wetas. I'm fascinated but they scare me. I hate cockroaches!


Thank you for visiting. I'd love to know that you were here.
