I've often used glass floral beads to make eyes for various clay or sculpture projects but never for a photography project.
I found some large glass beads at our local dollar store and then painted up a few sets of eyes in different colours and styles (mammalian or reptilian). Then while out on a hike with my family we went looking for unique features in the forest where we could place a set of eyes and give nature a face.
It became a really fun outing, hiking and seeing some beautiful landscapes while also searching out the finer details that could be given nature a face. I think we'll keep a set of eyes in our camping supplies so that we can do this again on our next hike.
Here is a catalog of my creative adventures and experiments
