Everybody shake your stuff! Nigel's DID CJ
Anyway - here's my entry in Nigel's CJ
As he's currently recuperating, I doubt he will be doing much breakdancing at the moment! but I hope that this spread reminds him of fun times at the forces discos :)
My string of luck continues this month, and despite there only being two songs left to choose from on Nigel's list, the one I really wanted right from the start was still available - Street Tuff by Double Trouble and the Rebel MC - love this choooooon! :)
But then my other half said "what about the Krays?" - genius ....
So I went about cutting a 5"square 4-layer stencil of Ronnie and Reggie..... what was I thinking??? It took ages and gave me a finger blister!
Fiddly little so and sos!
And here's the end result:
I do like the way it turned out but it was a lot of work! I need to find some other use for that Krays stencil now :D
For the inside spread I wanted breakdancers, so I cut some masks out from copier paper, being sure to cut them in one piece so I could use both the positive and negative parts of the stencil:
And then I took inspiration from something I had seen Andy Skinner do in one of his videos, to create my little "disco" scene using the gelli plate:
and that's about it, other than my sign in bit on the back:
From that angle you can see the "double trouble" is dimensional - the little title tiles were made using shrink plastic, as I wanted to use these graffiti bubble writing style alphabet stamps, they have a very old school hip hop feel to them, but they were way too big.
And then I called it a day.
Nigel - I hope you like it!
