Another music inspiration… now I go Irish, what do you think about Enya? Do you remember “paint the sky with stars”? Such a mystical music, I was falling in love with it the moment it came out (yes I am that old). So I just listened to that music and I floated away on my page.
I was beginning with a collage from pieces of music sheet on my spread. I added some shadows with charcoal.
I was blending my collage into my spread with gesso. I used Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (raspberry lemonade and pop rock puprle) to color my page. Then I added some sewing in the shape of music key.
I needed some stars, you know to paint on my sky, so I thought I am going to use Finnabair’s new elemental stencils. I added some modeling paste through the star stencil and I painted them with Inka gold orange.
I colorized a piece of plaster with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (yellow rose of Texas and wild honeysuckle coral). I stamped Daniel Torrente’s Dance party break up with archival ink and on paper stock colored with antique polish. I splattered some bachelor blue button spray on my spread.
On the other side I wanted to add my title, so I used pan pastel (diarylide yellow) to color a card on which I wrote with gel pen “paint the sky with stars”. I wanted some shadows, so I used again pan pastel to do so (as it works the best on every surface). I added some more stamping on my little card with France Papillon’s splattered mug.
I am sharing my music inspired spread with Stampotique designer’s challenge SDC 160.
