Open Your Eyes

The Think Monday Think ATC theme is “Open your Eyes”.

I stamped the image of the hand, scanned it, reduced its size and printed it onto colored paper. I use the computer a lot when I create.

The eye is from a magazine as are the background papers.

Since ancient times charms in the form of hands, whether made of metal, stone, or inscribed–were often carried to ward off the “Evil Eye”. From a metaphysical point of view, eyes radiate energy. Like all forces, the power flowing from the eyes may bless or curse others.

There are many examples of amulets with a single eye on the palm of the hand. It is believed that this attracts the Evil Eye in accord with the Law of Attraction and absorbs evil influences.

So here is my card of Protection for you!

  13. Thanks for the compliment Patty!! I must say, that’s a spooky hand… I like how you describe your process though! I always thought the eye of Horus was strangely haunting. I really must scan more backgrounds etc., but where do the days go?!
    I like your DH’s taste in music – sad, but sweet…. I hate to think what would end up on my artwork if I asked Nick to help!!
