For his song, Dan chose the original version of "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" from Evita, by Barbara Dickson. To transform the chipboard suitcase that he's had kicking around in a drawer for a couple of years, products he used included Traditional Tan paint by Claudine Hellmuth, the I See Paris, Artistic Collages and Creative Muse stamp sets, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Back To Black by Amy Winehouse is Tracy's song title choice represented by a black heart box decorated with hearts from Wendy Vecchi's Love To Make Art set. Coupled with a little foliage from the Tattered Pinecone and a flower from the Tattered Florals die and a key embellishment from Tim's Idea-ology Locket Keys.
Candy chose a classic song title, "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" for her fun 6x6 chipboard dimensional piece. Marilyn is all decked out in her designer Tim Holtz Dress Form made from Charcoal Black and Painterly Pink Studio Paints and Glam Pink Stickles. Add some Star Dust Stickles on Alpha Part "Diamonds" on top of a Harlequin background.
Ellen's chose the song "Imagine" by John Lennon. She did a tag using kraft resist paper, aged mahogany distress stain, gadget gears, crackle paint, various idea-ology, and the "imagination" stamp, all by Tim Holtz. Wouldn't the world be great if that song were true.... alas, we can only "imagine".
Sarah couldn't resist her jazz favourite, Frank's "Fly Me to the Moon" and created a new 'slant' on the song! She used Wendy Vecchi Art Parts including the Sample Pack, Pocket Watch and For the Guys. Her Steampunk fellow is flying high with light-bulb and Idea-ology wings and the whole lunar journey is set inside an old picture frame.
Lynne is still in the Valentines mood.....a little Black Gesso, some Forever Red Perfect Pearls Mist, Fired Brick Distress Stickles and the Mini Harlequin template are the perfect backdrop for the canvas embossed heart.
'Cause......ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!!!
Nancy's inspiration came courtesy of a Bruno Mars song. The base of this Graphic 45 mini album is a Black Policy Envelope book and celebrates accepting someone *just the way you are*. Curtain Call seemed the appropriate paper and that's paired with For The Record stickers and embellishments.
"Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow go" by Sam Cooke is the song Linda was inspired by for her piece this week. And she was humming it as she created this sweet Valentine's Day home decor piece using lots of Tim Holtz goodies including the Paper Rosette, Love Stuck and Tattered Pinecones dies. Other products used include Picket Fence Distress Stain, Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE).
Terry's favourite song is "Happiness" by Alexis Jordan so she made a Tag with lots of Happiness. The background is worked on with Tim's Embossing folder, is heat-embossed and uses lots of Distress Inks. The sentiments are from Artistic Outpost, the Butterfly from The Wendy and lots of roses are worked on with Rock Candy Crackle Paint. To finish, Terry added lace at the bottom and underneath the image.
Hopefully it is obvious that my song was Simon and Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound". After covering my box frame with Tim's Kraft Resist Paper ... I had a serious play with lots of Wendy Vecchi Art Parts this week. I also used oodles of Idea-Ology and Tim's mini Rosette die.
