Sparkling Soul

This week’s Mixed Media Monday challenge is “the eyes have it”.  I have several eye stamps that I like a lot, but went with this image instead.  This spread is in another altered book I have been playing in.  It’s a 1931 Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia.  It is postcard size ( 4 x 6 inches).


The quote that was my inspiration for these pages, “A sparkling Soul flashes out through the eyes” is from a wonderful book with The Collected Works of Hazrat Inayat Khan (thanks again Alecia :).  I used lots of different papers cut, torn and layered and some inks.  The decorated eye has a shiney bit of bling that the scan does not capture.
