Surprise!

A joke layout based on the Wikipedia description of Surprise. The text reads:

 

Surprise represents the difference between expectations and reality, the gap between our assumptions and expectations about worldly events and the way that those events actually turn out. In essence, surprises are the end result of predictions that fail.

 

Surprise is expressed in the face by the following features:

 

Eyebrows that are raised so they become curved and high.

Horizontal wrinkles across the forehead.

Open eyelids: the upper lid is raised and the lower lid is drawn down, often exposing the white sclera above and below the iris.

Dropped jaw so that the lips and teeth are parted, with no tension around the mouth.

 

Spontaneous, involuntary surprise is often expressed for only a fraction of a second. It may be followed immediately by the emotion of fear, joy or confusion. The intensity of the surprise is associated with how much the jaw drops, but the mouth may not open at all in some cases. The raising of the eyebrows, at least momentarily, is the most distinctive and predictable sign of surprise.[2]

I LOVE this! Can we ever look at Lucy without laughing? And she certainly has that "surprise" look mastered! Great creative layout, though your creativity is no surprise. :D I especially admire the way you skewed the striped paper, something I have lots of trouble with. :hit-head-with-hammer:

What a fun page you created for this challenge. Great choice of photo to use as Lucy's face was always full of expression.

Eden you have done it again! Your artistic interpretations always make me smile... What a fabulous way to scrap surprise! LOVE the way you used this photo to show surprise and how you enlarged the eye through the magnifying glass... so very clever! I agree your skewing is perfect for that floor and I like the way you used the clouds behind Lucy to give that feeling of her looking in... you do love your fabulous iconic women of the entertainment past don't you!?! This is brilliant :-)
