Your eyes are a reflection of your spirit-MTW May 2021 Mini

Hey, all! Today I have the tag I made for the More Than Words May 2021 Mini Challenge, “Eyes.” As you can see in the photos, lighting can change how this project looks!

The word “eyes” has to appear on the project, so I went looking for quotes that could inspire me. It just so happened that I had my (new) Finnabair Moulds sitting out at the same time. By my bead drawer. And a plan started to formulate!

May Mini EYES


You will see how lighting and flash vs no-flash change the appearance of the mediums, especially with the shine from the paints!

I started with a Julie Nutting tag. Not for the pattern, but because I like the size and the weight of it.

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil, some random filigree, and Ingvild Bolme “Nail Heads” to build my background.

I added some paper straws, a metal butterfly, and a key under my skull.

Another “Nail Head” in one eye and a rose in the other.

Another comparison of how lighting (or a flash) can change the appearance.

I had so much fun with this project! I love getting out my paints and pastes and getting messy! I hope you enjoyed this tag as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Stay Crafty, Friends
