In the eye of the beholder

It's Week 28 of the Compendium challenge - Colorful Layered Fragments - you can find the details for creating this look on page 57.  Remember me posting about my numerous attempts to master the Scribble Stain Distress?  Well, this tag was one of the ones I didn't like.  Not one to throw away possible background pieces I kept it knowing one day it would come in handy - either as a whole tag or one that could be punched because of the color combo on it.  When I saw it I thought of eye colors (blue, green and brown) and pink telling where this mind will wander!

So I chose Tim's Oddities and City Central sets for the background and the larger of the 3 eyes; Wendy's An Eye for Art gave me the small and medium eyes.  After very carefully applying the Glossy Accents to the outer edge of the fragments, I dropped the large one and smeared the GA.  Hence, the caption of 'evil eye' since it looks creepy and just plain weird.

I used the Dymo Caption Maker (as seen used by Tim on Tag 8/2010) to create my sentiments.  The largest one I got from Wendy's set Art Begins.

As you can see, the 'eyes' have it and this tag is complete.  Okay, I'll give up the play on words and poor pun.  But somebody has to do it so why not me?!!?!? 


  1. I agree, it is evil. lol! Wonderful tag, love the dymo tape idea!

  2. Great job on the fragment eyes!

  3. What a brilliant expression of this challenge, Susan! Your Fragments looks AMAZING! I love the "evil eye," too-- brilliant way to turn a goof into an asset! Your scribble stained background works wonderfully for this design, and the old-school labels are FABULOUS!

    I like your puns, too!
