52Q - weeks 4 and 5

Back to the weekly art journal challenge for me. I'd been mulling over week 4's question - What do you see when you look into your eyes?

I wanted to use a close-up of my eye, and decided to mess about with photoshop. I converted a picture to black and white, adjusted the contrast and brightness to end up with what you see to the left.

My trusty £1 letter stamps came in handy, I've been wanting some of the making memories mini alpha stickers that I see on a lot of layouts, but these do much the same.

The "Time" is a 7 gypsies rub-on, and the rest is handwritten. All in all, I'm happy with the result!

The next week, the question was "How do you feel today?". With all the snow, I was out early this morning with my camera, snapping some fantastic scenery in glorius conditions. The front of the ATC is a photo of a snow-covered roof near me, complete with weather vane. It just looked to perfect, all clean, and against a beautiful blue sky. It summed up for me why I LOVE weather like this. Clean, peaceful and beautiful.

Simple crafting today, another couple of rub-ons and just a metal photo corner to finish off the journaling. I am thoroughly enjoying this project, but have a couple of layouts up my sleeve for this week. Watch this space ;)

What do you feel about weather like this? Do tell!

Love love love the eye idea (eyedea? )
might have to borrow that one,lol. I could even photoshop in some lovely lashes, something I've never had many of.
I'll blog about the printing on fabric thing, can't seem to find a way to email you.

Great designs! I like the way the bird on the last picture kind of echoes the design of the weather vane.

Looking forward to your layouts!
I see snow... and groan. I love how it looks but the cold just makes me ache :(
Bah humbug.
