Another in the Deconstructed Art Journal page swap going on in Middle Earth this year. Take an 8"x 8" paper, fold in half and decorate portrait angle. For 6 people this time. I cut up a songbook, so everyone has a different song to sing. I did an extra one for Mr Ed Poe - "Evertrue Evermore" - the third one down!
Carabelle Studio have some rather different stamps. I'm using a Seth Apter stamp to head up the front page - rather tongue in cheek - "everything imaginable is here" and down the bottom, Rubber Dance instructs you to Go where the music takes you.
"mood" music The back page is rather sparse - Stampendous rendering of Danse Macabre, and a cloud giving credit to the stamps and stencils used in this piece. Seth Apter's Explore stencil was the first layer to make it onto the page, then Retro Comet and starburst now discontinued by Artist Cellar then one from the Sacred Heart series at Stencil Girl - since all the songs that were the starting place seemed to deal with love not being as satisfacory as one would wish, the barbed wire across the heart seemed appropriate. (And green is the alternate colour to pink for the heart chakra)
Then it was out with the stamps
Rubber Dance for the wee dancers
Blockhead for the squiggles and notes on the die-cut witch,
Rubber Stamp Ave for the musical bird that is the witch's alter ego.
I added diecut music notes as telephone poles, and birds on a line (presumably all singing their hearts out in 4-part harmonies)
I hope my teamies are proud of me - there's pink in the framing!!!
So if you hear what you think is wind through the trees, hearken closely, it could be Witchy breathing a new song into the skellies, bringing them back to life for one night only.
OR... it could be Evil Froggy demanding more weird stuff from you all!
Though if you carry on therough the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop, you could be rather stunned by what's already being put on offer.
