In Your Eyes -Colour, Story,Inspiration Challenge # 4

The Challenge at CSI here,  is asking for you to look at your photo and write down your thoughts. Look for something unexpected and ask questions about it along with following the other clues.

My testimony - Something unexpected, written reflections, framed  journaling and formatted in steps.
IW- Wonder, Change.
My Evidence - Photo - reflective acetate,  framed, glossy accents and  rhinestone brads,the braiding and glimmer flakes on birdcage,  shiny ribbon and shiny flower with rhinestone brad centre.

My journaling reads: "I look into your eyes and wonder. I see no reflection of the years of pain you've endured. You have always seen the positive in life. There is no sadness that the 15 operations to your foot have been in vain. You are one of the most courageous people I know, never showing your doubts or fears, always smiling, laughing, caring and ready to help anyone. Now you're stepping into woman hood I know you'll welcome what lies ahead.  You'll accept the trials and embrace the opportunities that life brings you. You are beautiful on the outside but your inner beauty shines through your eyes.  I'm so proud that you're my granddaughter." The papers I used were all from stock, I know the lined paper is from Stampington, white, black and teals from Papermania but the light teal background paper I can't remember.  The birdcage and the coloured flowers are flocked onto the paper, I added black stitched flowers using my embroidery setting on my sewing machine.
You can see more details here, it's on until the 5th February why don't you try and solve the last of the January Challenges.
