If Music Be The Food Of Love

When I saw that one
of the challenges at Bird is the Word was to use the word "MUSIC", the verse from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night came to mind. So I made this...

I adhered a piece 
of Imaginisce DP from their fall collection of last year to my page with gel medium... then some torn scraps of music sheet tissue paper. I rubbed on a little Yellow Ochre acrylic paint with my finger and covered it all with Clear Rock Candy crackle paint.  A random layer of molding paste using the Mini Tile Texture stencil from Crafter's Workshop went on next. When it was dry, I applied a bit of Red Ochre acrylic here and there.

I cut a heart with
my Spellbinder's die and stamped it using my Love Set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and Jet Black Archival ink. I stamped the center of the O with a rose peg stamp, then the leaves. I went over all with a crackled effect stamp, then scrunched up the heart in my hand for some wrinkles... applied it to the page with gel medium and rubbed on some of the Red Ochre and some more of that crackled stamping. The shadowing is done with a black soft charcoal pencil. I rubbed some Jet Black Archival ink on the horn charm and added it using Glossy Accents.

I printed the verse
on my Mac, added Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, applied the words to my page with gel medium and finally did more shadowing with the black soft charcoal.

More of the Jet Black
ink went around the edges of the page... then I called it quits! A very enjoyable project.
