Hello everyone and lovely to have you drop in!
I am delighted to let you know that after a month's break, the Our Creative Corner challenge blog is re-opening with a new challenge set by the wonderful Alison from Words and Pictures. The theme she has chosen is "With a Song in your Heart". Each of the design team were asked to choose their favourite song and create a project around it.
I created a tag, dedicated to one of my favourite song writers, Pete Seeger, who passed away this February.
The song I chose is called Garbage. It is quite a dark song, but I chose it because I wanted to show how ahead of his time Pete Seeger was when he wrote this song in the 70s. It's as relevant now as it was then. Here is a link to the song, if you want to have a listen:
Below are some of the Lyrics:
But onto my tag: I created the background with a mix of Dylusion Sprays in various Blues and Black.I also used some Distress Paints in Bundled Sage and Picket Fence. Some texture was added with the help of a couple of Crafters Workshop stencils, Gothic Romans and Specimens. I used Decoart texture paste as it is pure white.
Here you can see a bit peeping out underneath part of the song text which I computer generated and then distressed with a Tim Holtz pen nib added.
My vocal stamp was a La Blanche steam punk one, for some reason I thought it fitted my theme.
I added a Melissa Frances resin crown, distressed with some paint and a bit of treasure gold. For me Pete Seeger will always be the king of Folk Music. The stamp was stamped on smooth card and then fussy cut and adhered to the tag. I added some dark drips with more Dylusions and a small brush.
Some Tim Holtz letter stickers, some Tissue Tape and a few scraps of old book paper finished it all off
Our Creative Corner to see all the amazing projects my teamies have created, and of course we would love it if you join in our challenge and share your favourite song with us all!
Happy April everyone!!
