Before I begin with today’s project, I have a little favour to ask. Voting has now begun on the Create for a Cause projects over at the Gecko Galz. The winning entry will receive a donation for their chosen charity, mine being Amy and Friends. You can vote for your favourite simply by emailing email@example.com Of course I’d love it if you would vote for mine, and it would make Amy and Friends very, very happy.
This week’s word over at Every Inchie Monday is “song.” Having last week said that I can’t seem to make just one inchie, this week I have virtually a whole yard of them. That’s yard as in three feet (almost a metre if you work in metric) not a back yard! Actually, I’m exaggerating, but I did find that once I’d started I couldn’t stop. Here are the originals:
I decided to represent song by using notes and the syllables of the musical scale, made famous by the classic song in the Sound of Music. I hand drew these adding in decorative details. I probably should have done all seven but, to be honest, getting the first four right took me long enough! Once I had the four I decided it might be nice to experiment so I had a little play with some colour.
This design wasn’t my original idea, my first plan was to use swans and musical images (as in swan song) but it was hard to make four different ones. Anyway, I did get as far as making two, using images from The Graphics Fairy.
The swans are separate images which I cut out and glittered. I added blue Promarker to the music sheet images and a smidge of blue glitter which the camera doesn’t really pick up.
I never tire of watching The Sound of Music and when I was younger I was in love with Captain von Trapp/Christopher Plummer and thought making dresses out of curtains was a genius idea. I always struggle to remember whether Rolf gives them away whilst they are hiding in the convent. I still dream of recreating one particular scene from the film and Mr Beez worries that one day I will! Can you guess which?
