I'm using this massive A3 sketch book, so I have plenty of space to work in. I found a set of old map prints and knew this was going to be my base. I trimmed it up, and gave it a really good sanding, because it had a high gloss finish. I chose a map as a back drop, because of a line in the song 'I'm in a European disco, and it's thumping up the beat' - so welcome to Marseilles! I also distressed the edges, and ripped into it to age it.
Before......... and after!
Then I set to with ink and stamps!
I wrote out the first few lines on card, which I then coloured using promarkers. I added a doodle of a heart monitor output on that lyric (it's NOT my heart beat, it's not fast enough!), and then glued it all together.
Hope you like!
