Eyes of Gold

My oldest daughter has GORGEOUS golden eyes. Depending on her mood and clothing choices they range from light brown, to tawny amber, to bright yellow. While taking a selfie one morning she caught her eyes at their bright yellow stage. Was it her colorful clothing, purple hair, or a happy moment? Whatever the cause I was thrilled to have a copy of her photo.
~ Eyes of Gold ~
The chipboard in the upper corner of this layout is coated with a combination of Color Box pigment inks. I used Gold, Violet, and Cyan in layers. I topped it with clear shimmer embossing powder.
To create that lovely scratchy circle I removed the mister from my Smooch Spritz and drew on the paper. It took several dips, which created those lovely blotchy splatters!
The resin flowers on this layout are inked with pigment ink then embossed with clear shimmer embossing powder. I tried to use only the ink, but it wiped off the resin without the heat and powder to set it.
Here is an assortment of resin flowers in before and after stages of altering.
The title for my piece was cut using my Silhouette.
I used the cut away as a mask and applied black pigment ink. Next I dusted gold embossing powder onto the letters in a scattered fashion. The letters with too much powder I brushed off with a paint brush before heating.
This is my entry for Red Carpet Studio's
Use things in sets of 2.
The white and yellow resin flowers as well as the purple gem flowers have twins.
I also used the same photo twice, once in color, once in B/W.
