in Penny's book - Music. Here are my first set of pages...
The page on the left is inspired from the Crowded House song Private Universe...'highest branch on the apple tree was my favourite place to be...' This was another Cloth, Paper, Paint & Stitch page, once complete I actually stitched it to the paper page. The page on the left holds a CD I burned & printed on for Penny. Each song on the CD captures a memory, the little note slipped in behind the clear CD pocket holds a brief explanation.
this is a second set of pages I completed...
The page on the left was inspired by Mr Mister's song Broken Wings.
I wove together two sheets of paper to create the background, the first page contains the Lyrics to the song and the second sheet was some of the sheet music to the song. I then lightly painted over this with white Fluid Acrylic paint. The famous image of the couple dancing is a gel medium transfer. The other elements were hand stitched onto the page.
The page on the right was inspired by Hey Soul Sister by Train.
I painted a colourful background of Red, Orange & Nic/Azo Gold. Once dry I placed a mask I cut of a woman dancing in the middle and painted the page with Golden Carbon black - lovely and glossy. I removed the mask to reveal the woman alight with music. Once dry I used a white paint pen to write the words of the song.
