Q&L Challenge 9

The Craft Barns latest challenge has been a real tough one, there are lots of quotes on both words but not too many using them both in the same place.

The two words we have been given to use are: UNIQUE and FAME.

I found these lyrics from Glen Campbell and Steve Wariner in a song titled

‘The Hand That Rocks The Cradle’

the lyrics say…

There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation's most unique and precious pearl

It was released in 1987 as the first single from the album Still Within the Sound of My Voice.

This week i made a master board as i wanted to use it for two projects, this is the piece that is over after making the projects.

P1060610

Cut a piece and adhered it onto an iCard.

P1060617

Then tried my hand at some Zenspiration tangling. This fabulous way of drawing tangles is taught by the lovely Joanne Fink.

Tangled a frame, colouring in the areas with coloured pens. The words were cut from a book called Blue on Blue (the link is just to show you the book), the boy band, it is a fan book and contained most of the words and letters i needed to create this look.

Had to improvise and write a couple of the words myself as they weren’t easy to find, like the different fonts and the look of a ransom note lol.

The master board was coloured using Pan Pastels Pink and Orange, the stencil is a Sizzix doily die which i used Versamark ink through and then went over again with the same colour Pan Pastels.  

P1060618

On the reverse of the iCard i adhered the two words we were to use, the title of the song, the year it was released and the Vocalists.

Hope you like the iCard. Do leave a comment so i know you have visited.

Thanks for dropping by.

  14. I just recently created my first masterboard. I was surprised at how many of my visitors had never heard of it or how to make one. I thought I was the last person on the planet to make one (grin). It's always fun to see how they turn out when they are cut to size.

    Your zentangle frame is fantastic. I am in awe, and of course, my hand started cramping just seeing all that hand work. Yours is definitely lovely.

    I agree with Mo (Twinkle Toes). I just "assumed" you knew about ICADs. You create one a day for 61 days during June and July. Maybe I'll see you there, too!

    BTW, super lyrics to go with the art. Or maybe it's super art to go with the lyrics!

  15. What a lovely Masterboard and the frame is fabulous. Clever you, finding those lyrics. I don't think I would be equal to this challenge - it would be beyond me to find anything that fitted! Julie Ann xxx

  21. What a super lyric encompassing both words so brilliantly how on earth did you find that! Love the zentangling border. Thanks for visiting me BJ

  22. Oh and the Indigo Blu stamps are brilliant aren't they? Told both my on-line group and used them with my home group this week and loads of ladies set about to find and buy the magazine to get their own set. I saw the lady stamp in rubber at a show last week and it alone was £8.99, so £4.99 for that and all the others in acrylic was a bargain if you ask me. I wasn't even that bothered with the magazine either LOL. BJ

  25. Glen Campbell was my fave singer in the days of vinyl, lol! Still have quite a few of his older albums and he can still sing so well inspite of his dementia (must be in his soul). You did so well finding these two words in the lyrics and I love the masterboard. Great use of the zentangling too.

    Hugs
