Blue Eyes…


As I was wandering around our internet highway I came across a blog spot called “Scrap Africa” It’s a place where creative people can post their creative talent.  I copied this statement from their website when wondering why they were posting a challenge to all people around the world when the website was called Scrap Africa, ” Simply because we want to showcase and celebrate the creative talent that we have in our beautiful land. At the same time we want to share it with the rest of the world and be inspired by others. While our main focus is on scrapbooking in Southern Africa we hope that our challenges will attract scrappers from different parts of the world”

After reading this and seeing that they had posted a challenge this month with a “vintage” theme I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I have a beautiful picture of my grandfather, who passed away when I was a baby.  His eyes in this picture, although black and white, must have been the most beautiful blue, they seem to shine through the image. I somehow wanted to showcase this image on a vintage canvas.  So here are a few pictures and my entry for the Vintage Canvas for Scrap Africa I created in his honor.  I hope you like it and feel inspired.
