My Eyes

Over at the Simon Says Stamp blog the Work It Wednesday Challenge is Blue. I decided to use the challenge as a way to showcase my blue eyes.

I first applied a thick layer of gesso and then stamped into it with a hand carved stamp. I then added several layers of various colors of blue Distress Paint, letting each color run into the next.

I used adhered a black and white picture of my eyes. I enhanced digitally the picture to make my eyes a bit more blue. I then went around the edges with some white paint to blend it in some.

After the white paint was dry i added in some more distress Paint and let it drip down over my eyes. I added some paint and pen to my eyes to add a bit my pop to them.

 I was not sure how the texture on the background would allow me to write the saying smoothly. So I wrote the saying on a piece of tissue paper and adhered that to the page.

And there you have it a look into my eyes journal page. Thank you so much for stopping by.  Be sure to stop over to the challenge to see more wonderful creations.
