Hi there! This fortnight's Quotes and Lyrics from the Craft Barn challenge is 'Miss'. I have loved Elton John's music for ever, and one of his earliest hits just came rushing at me for this:
and of course, it gave me a change to go mad on the bling front!
This year, my book is A3, so I do have masses of space to go large. I used as my base the shiny side of centura pearl, and painted it with water, before spraying it with several colours of Dylusions.
I stamped that lovely Tim Holtz lady in archival, and then smooshed her through some watered down distress ink, doing the same sort of thing for the words, only in this case, the DI was watered down with cosmic shimmers.
It's hard to believe that this single was released in 1972 - OMG...
Hope you like!
