Blue Jean baby, LA Lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, Pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
Hold me closer Tiny Dancer
Count the headlights on the highway...
The Madman cover is embroidered denim, so I wanted to start with blue. As I have been on a Kate Crane weekend (another one, at The Stamp Attic), and Kate does love a good colour wheel, I went with green. It had to be Dylusions! I added a little Radiant Rain, for bling.
Dylusions reacts with water, so I used a mask or two and dabbed through it, with water, and with distress inks - that was a good effect!
Picking up on the seamstress idea, I used his Holtzness' blueprint stamps top and bottom, and reverted to handwriting (I must restart the calligraphy classes) the lyric.
Finally I added a couple of embellishments, a dress form, and some rain drops to act as headlights. I love the way the glue soaks up the dylusions.
All in all, I'm pleased with it, so I hope you like!
