AAJS6: Sharon's Pages in Lisa's "Music Lyrics" Journal
Here's my spread in Lisa's Journal - what a great theme - fabulous pages in this one - a great selection of music lyrics by the contributors so far!
As you can see I've gone back to the 60's with Sonny & Cher and their classic "I Got You Babe" song!
I started by covering the pages with some white paint. And then I printed the song lyrics on tissue paper - always a process fraught with danger!!!!!!!!! I coloured the digi stamp with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Digi stamp is by Sandra Caldwell and is a perfect caricature of Sonny & Cher!
I adhered the song lyrics to the journal page with gel medium. Note: I tor around the wording to give a jagged edge and make it blend into the page better when adhered and not look like a piece of paper just stuck on!
I chose a stencil that I thought looked a bit 60's/70's LOL and sponged yellow and purple paint to match the colouring of my image.
I cut out little scrabble type cardboard letters to make the title "I Got You Babe" and "Sonny and Cher" and glued them to the page with the main image. I also stamped a tiny little flower stamp from Blank Page Muse over the pages for some added "Flower Power"!
I am so happy with how this turned out!
Lisa - I hope you like it!!
