Reading the largest printed letters situated at the height of his right eyebrow reduced some suspense..
This is the first time I see that city's name ( near his chin) in mirror image :)

yes! i love the slow peeling of the paper. i usually do it when it is not quite dry so the blending is even smoother but sometimes i am annoyed by the white, unprinted fibres that shine through ... this one is exceptionally nice. bonnet off again! :iconflowerplz:

Sometimes I like the contrast between emerging image and paper to be sharp (fuzz), but sometimes the paper fiber gets in the way. And when that's the case, I dip my finger in some gel (I use soft gel because it seems to be more transparent) and rub. It works remarkably well to remove/conceal the leftover paper. Glad you like this one...thanks!

I am so embarrased that I have neglected everything over here. Need to learn to be a little kinder to myself. I was thinking I was in the mood for an art book, though...so this sounds great to me.

i have one nearly completely prepped here. will do something in it and send on to you, okay? but it has to be another slow-rolling one ...

That would be fabulous. And slow-rolling is always good. :)

i am sometimes wondering how it must feel to live in a country where people can own guns ... i'm not sure it would make me feel safer, to be honest

:iconlauratringaliholmes:
LauraTringaliHolmes Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
It doesn't make me feel safer. Quite the contrary. The guy having a hissy fit in the supermarket because of a slow line could have a gun...and he could choose to use it.

Thanks, Richard...for lack of a better term, I call the blendy thing that I'm doing "painting with paper." Sometimes I just don't want those sharp cuts anymore. I guess I'm getting soft....

Well as my mother-in-law said once, "We're always going through phases!"

I like both sharp cuts and this ragged look... I'm hard in a soft way or vice-versa :D

I'm claiming soft-in-a-hard way. You can be hard-in-a-soft way. Phases are fun, keeps the spring in the step, especially since signs of spring round here are nil.

Okay that sounds good to me :handshake:

I hear you about signs of spring. A facebook friend in North Carolina mentioned spring yesterday - Lúcia said she was feeling it the other day - and I'm listening to the cold wind blow, looking at the (thin but still) snowscape, and feeling winter.
