Craft Barn challenge. Knowledge or Hurt


I have chosen hurt for this challenge. My quote is 'Do you want to hurt me, Do you want to make me cry' by Boy George and Culture Club. An excellent song and takes me straight back to being 18 and having just left school and into the big wide world of work. A very scary time.

I outlined an eye based on a picture of Boy George's eye. I then used water colour paints and pencils. I used the pencil to add definition to the outline. I then wrote the song all over it in a pen similar colour to the background. The chorus is in the tear drop. Finally I sprayed a little water to make bits blur.  It is the first time I have drawn facial features in a journal and I am very pleased with the result.
