This piece just evolved many times over. I started with one idea and then it grew and changed. I wanted to do something with an old record 12" vinyl as the base. So, I guess I mixed the "Through These Eyes" and "Around the World" themes. I spray painted over a Heidi Swapp world mask using gold spray paint. Then I painted using TIm Holtz metal stencils to add the numbers down the side as a countdown.
THe barbed wire is texture paste through the negative of the Tim Holtz border masks. I silver leafed over that.
Then, I added my photo on transparency over part of the images.
I punched holes into the record with my crop-a-dile to create a distressed and acid eaten edge look.
The words are rub ons. They tell of the things that I see on the news or in my world. Kind of a good Vs. evil take.
