A hole in the head

First off let me say thanks to everyone here.....and on Facebook.....who took the time to suggest words for the journal page in my last post....I will make a decision and let you know!

So, onto the next thing! I saw a post by MARK GOULD about a challenge where the theme was "something with a hole in it".
 As you may be aware I use doll heads quite a lot:)......the ceramic ones often have a hole in the top of the head which can be a bit of a pain but in this case was just perfect!
 They sometimes come with a plastic cover that fits over the hole, this time I turned that cover upside down and suspended it in the hole to give a sort of little nest
........for an eyeball!!




 Can you see the very faint crackle effect here? Well, it wasn't intentional but I like it! I used Decoart paints on this and drying them with a heat gun made them crackle slightly.




MINE EYE HATH SEEN THE GLORY

Wow! Your art is just stunning! I love what you do with those innocent little baby heads. This one is just brilliant! Couldn't get much creepier than an eyeball on top, surrounded by rusty nails! Thanks so much for joining us in the Dungeon at HDH.

Now that is very creative, you have an 'eye' for the slightly macabre but it's brilliant.
