I love music and enjoy most genres ranging from liturgical music to rap, from classical to head-bangin' rock! Music fills my soul and moves me emotionally and physically.
Let's see how music inspires you! Use song lyrics, music notation, or words associated with music in your project and share it with us!
Have fun! I can't wait to see what you all create!
The song that most moves me at the moment is by Massive Attack and it is called Angel. The First line lyrics are ‘You Are My Angel’ which is why they are on my grey board.
This song came out in 2009 and i fell in love with the track and haven’t fallen out of love with it yet. I do hope you enjoy listening to it.
Stamped Angel Boy onto white card stock with Archival ink then dusted with Black Pan Pastel. Used a Jokar battery operated eraser to remove all the colour from his wings. Initially i coloured them with Copper and yellow Pan Pastels but then decided to use DecoArt Media Crackle Paste and this is what happened.
Love the small crackle, looks even better when a little Treasure Gold is added.
For some texture i chose to use the Mini bliss Stencil from TCW,which has now been discontinued. Spread a thin layer of the Grunge paste and let it dry.
Stamped Journey Collage on the surface to add a little more interest to the background. Knew it wasn’t going to stamp perfectly but i like that.
At this stage i forgot to take any more pictures until it was all assembled.
Used a washer to make Angel boy’s halo, coloured it with Zesty zing and Paprika Fresco Paints.
Angel boy stands on a scallop wood border from Prima which has been coloured using Inky Pool Fresco Paint, over stamped with Journey Collage stamp and heat embossed using white WOW Powder. The ribbon is from stash.
Added treasure Gold in Renaissance and Onyxite to the mini bliss areas, wanted to create a glow emanating from Angel Boy.
To finish off the board i used a scrap piece off a TH On the Edge die cut and attached it to the top.
Lyrics are hand written onto cream card stock, added Pan Pastel colours, sealed then roughed up the edges, added a hand doodled border. Adhered the lyrics to the board and then i was done.
Hope you enjoyed seeing how the project was made, would love to read your comments.
Thanks for dropping by.
