Here is my page for my May challenge over on Docrafts, which Coventry Ann kindly ran for me because my youngest Grandson George was in hospital.
The theme was Monochrome using Black & White photographs - I knew exactly what I wanted to do and have spent may hours trying to solve the problem but in the end I gave up and just used photos of George. His brothers Harry and Reece also have beautiful eyes, but Reece's are almost ice blue and too pale to use for the photo effects and Harry has quite dark eyes, but they are too dark for this. Several years ago I was playing with a version of Adobe Photoshop that I had on my old computer and came across this picture of George that I played around with.
I think the effects are stunning as he has such beautiful eyes, I turned the picture into black & white and sepia, I have also used the original colour photo too. I mounted everything onto just plain rectangles of different shades of blue, added a title and just his name and the date they were taken on because I didn't want anything to detract from his eyes.
I love the look on his face and it reminds me of the mornings when he woke up in his cot at the end of my bed and just sat there looking at me with a huge grin on his cheeky face, he's nearly 7 now and is still just a cute as he was then.
Thank you for looking and any comments you wish to make
