The Bluest Eyes digi LO *FINISHED*

Journaling says The Bluest Eyes In Nebraska
and "Arwen, age 4"
I "cut out" her blue eyes, made the picture black & white, then added the blue colored eyes back on top & merged the layers down Smile

i don't think it needs anything but personally i'd separate the pictures more and have the title in the middle, not overlapping the pictures... but it looks great!!! Smile

How'd you get the pics to curl like that? Those are sweet.

Overall I really, really like it. I'm big on the b/w with the eye color showing through - especially on blue eyed children - very cool.

My only question - the curl on the photos looks a little odd. After looking at it I see that the picture is supposed to curl up on those corners but the photograph for some reason doesn't "go" with that - like it didn't curl but just distorted a little. Does that make sense? I hope I didn't offend by saying something - it's force of habit I guess - I used to work with lots of graphic designers and spent lots of time looking at many different layouts.

At any rate, I think this is fabulous! You are very talented.

I love it! The color of her eyes stands out perfectly, esp. since that is what you were trying to capture. You have a lot of talent and creativity.

TY everyone! I am glad you think it looks OK!
I do not know how to actually make the photo "curl" :? I am working with paint shop as a just dont have the money for Photoshop right now. If there is a way to make the actual photo "curl" in PSP I would love to know! I just fit them into the pre curled frames. Please let me know if there is a way to do this Smile
I am glad you like the color selection, for some reason one of her eyes looks "bluer" than the other but I think it was the way the light was hitting them Smile

that is a neat page!!!!! I love how you were able to isolate her eyes like that (I'm a HUGE fan of selective colorization like that)
