When I first saw Pam/Psychodiva's list of songs for her fabric-based CJ, I was pretty much sure I would end up choosing either good old Bo Rap, Smooth Criminal, or the Dixie Chicks.
But when I popped the CD on, it was actually this song - Hollow Talk by the Choir of Young Believers - that jumped out at me:
It is the theme song to the Scandinavian crime series 'The Bridge', which about a zillion people have recommended to me, and which I have finally got around to ordering so I can see if it's as great as they all say....
The series starts with a female body being found, in two parts, at the centre of the bridge which joins Denmark to Sweden - half in Denmark's jurisdiction and half in Sweden's - and so that's the rather gory inspiration I have taken for my entry:
But in the end I decided that would make the whole thing a bit too busy, especially given that I wanted to fit some of the lyrics from the song on there too.
The dead lady was embroidered from my original sketch:
Not having seen the programme yet I have no idea if the actual body looked anything like this, am taking a bit of artistic licence :)
I really enjoy working in fabric, which is just as well, as I have Sherry's journal coming next!
Oh - and I almost forgot ..... the Collabor-ART twist!
Pam hasn't done her own entry in the CJ yet, so I couldn't add anything there, but I refused to be deprived of my god given collabor-artist's right to meddle :)
I'm sure she won't mind :)
