Song Art Challenge













I participated in this little Art Challenge over at Violette's message board. We were to use song lyrics for inspiration. I used "To the Moon and Back" by Savage Garden. I incorporated some of the things I learned in my retreat. In this piece I used Golden full bodied acrylics, Ranger stamp pads and re-inkers, I took punches and made stencils for the moon and stars, used a music stamp and a brilliance ink pad and threw on some glitter. It was quick. easy and fun. Oh I also used some twinkling H2O's to tone down the white paper of the words.

At the Art Nest retreat I signed up to do Elise's Heart book so I really need to start thinking about what I am going to do for that. I need to do 34 pages so that is going to take some time. I have till Aug 30 but I know making the first piece is the easy part, its all the copies that takes forever. At this point I like to think about how wonderful it will be to receive the book. Then its not so hard to make all the pages, I just need to find my idea and then I can get to it.

Great piece for the art challenge, love the colors. I didn't do it, too much was going on at the time. I may do it just for myself.

I like this idea, and your take on the idea. I think I will try something out with this idea. I make a little bit of art myself.
