Title: Here's Looking at You Kid
Another Sketch from the Pencil Lines Sketches blog. Lately, using these sketches, I'm able to whip out these layouts in under an hour. This page started out rather simple. I wanted the focus to be the close-up photo of Omar's features looking through the bubble blower wand. The shot is taken with my pro-level 70-200 mm lens from rather far away, so I guess the distance would explain why I couldn't get greater sharpness in the eyes (but it might be user fault :).
The title is from a famous 1942 movie Casablanca, which I just got the urge to watch again.
Technique: I rubbed a glitter glue (Stickles) on the bubbles (the irridescence doesn't show up on the scan); I punched the striped borders with a border punch. I placed a cascade of crystals to further echo the bubble theme. The large orange ring was cut out using the Coluzzle, the smaller rings are Quickutz dies--all backed with white paper.
Thanks for looking!
