art journaling page - apple of my eye


Do you know where the phrase "the apple of my eye" comes from?  This was a question posed in my "Falling For You" class; we were challenged to complete an art journal page using apples and giving an explanation for this expression.


Using the Hebrew phrase "Little Man of the Eye", I found a pretty lady and drew some little men in her eyes.  I sketched a table on the right and placed a plate of apples on it.  They came from Mussle Man's Natural Applesauce - I love using kitchen labels!  As usual, the right side of my page was getting a little heavy, so I outlined my spread to tie everything together and stenciled a nice (apple and heart) tree for my lady to lean against.  Also added some stencil flowers.  And fallen apples, which I love.

Yes, I'm getting metaphorical...

 

I found this spread to be lighter than my previous pages, a deliberate effort on my part.

And who's the apple of your eye?  {:-D

Very fun! I have a picture of one of my goats and one of my horses with my reflection in their eye. Really fun to see that.

The page looks great--I like the red on the sides. And It is fun to learn about the phrase.

My favorite part are the little men that you put in the woman's eyes. Very clever!
