Nightmare Before Christmas

I've always admired people like Katie Alves who can do whole paintings on their eyelids, but I've never really thought about doing it myself. Then, the other day I felt a surge of inspiration and created this look inspired by one of my favorite (big surprise) movies, The Nightmare Before Christmas.


Hope you like it! :) I would love to do more "eye art" pieces like this one, inspired by other Tim Burton movies, so we'll see where my imagination will lead me.

    1. Thanks! :) I'm glad you liked it! It didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped though, so I might try it again some time. Just practice and I'm sure you'll be there in no time! :)

  9. Hey, Madam Noire! I have a question for you...I have a big problem with Blogger: everytime I click 'new post' the page that you write on doesn't show up. This problem has never happened until a week ago. I haven't been able to post anything on my blog! :( I know that it is nothing wrong with my computer, it is something with blogger, and I was just wondering if you've ever had this problem. Thanks! :) Lucy

    1. That sounds really strange! I never had that problem though, so I have no idea what might cause it. But there are several ways of going to the "new post" page on blogger. When you go in on blogger.com/home you will find an orange button with a pencil on. Click on that one and the page that you write on should appear. Also, when you click the Posts meny, you come to a page where all your published posts and drafts are listed. On that page, up in the left corner you can find another button with a pencil on that will also make the page you write on appear. Hope that will help! :) Good luck!
