So the challenge I am entering this pierce of work for is Crafty Ann's Challenge #19 - and you need to illustrate a song by Sir Cliff Richard. In my teeny-bob years (help! - when was that?) he was my idol, along with people like Billy Fury, Adam Faith, etc, etc. I remember I wanted to go and see Cliff at Southampton, and my sister - who is year 3 years younger than me, so she would have been about 10, wanted to come as well. It was a Sunday, and the only way we were allowed to go was if Dad came on the train with us to Southampton. He went to church, while we were at the show!!
So, the song I have decided to illustrate is 'With the Eyes of a Child' which was released in 1969. As soon as I decided on that song I knew which stamp I would use - but what to do. The stamp is from a Paper Bag Studios stamp plate. I have taken a small canvas and covered it in a mixture of Kaiser Craft paint - two shades of green, and then spritzed through a Glimmer Mist mask with a Key Lime Pie glimmer mist. The stamping on the canvas is with Wendy Vecchi stamps, and I have also made a grunge paper rose, leaves and butterflies. The rose and butterflies were coloured with distress inks and then misted with Antique Brass Glimmer Mist. I took a Maya Road frame and covered it with Shabby Shutters distress ink, and then sprayed it with the Key Lime Pie mist, and when that was dry, Antique Brass. I have added some jewels to be butterflies, and some Tim Holtz corners to the canvas.
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
