Fewer songs to choose from now but as you can see
I chose 'The Lark Ascending' by Vaughan Williams.
Beautiful music, but no lyrics to work with!
Luckily, Nigel had provided the reasons behind why
this made his top ten, so I worked with that.
For the front cover one lark is ascending from
what is supposed to be stormy clouds.
I used handmade paper, distress inks and
some liquid pearls.
Sorry Nigel, this probably looks nothing like the
abandoned airfield you spent many happy hours
in but let's just say it's my interpretation!
I used Pan Pastels for the sky and fields
and rubber stamped some wild flowers with
It's at times like this I really wish I could draw and paint,
but nevertheless, I like the end result - and maybe
it will be added to before it arrives back home.
I added to all of the previous pages as follows:-
Virginia's 'Brighton Rock' -
I rubber stamped a postage stamp with the Queen's head on.
Sian's 'Tainted Love' -
I rubbed some metallic rub on paste around the
title and added some splodgy rubber stamping.
Pat's 'Ultravox' -
A rubber stamped flourish to the back page
Donna's 'A New England' -
Painted the girls' stockings red to match their lips
Karen's 'Freebird' -
Added a bird to the front cover
... and finally to Nigel's own page 'Caroline',
I added a denim heart with 'Quo' written on.
Hope this is all ok and I'm looking forward
(yes, actually looking forward, and not so nervous now)
about the next one!
