Quote and Lyrics Challenge Change and Truth

I can't believe I haven't managed to post since my last Q & L entry, time goes by so quickly!  We had to choose between Change and Truth for the Craft Barn challenge - I chose 'Change'.  I used lyrics from Changes by David Bowie.  The song was originally released on the Hunkydory album in 1971 and then as a single in 1972.  Changes didn't do too well in the charts but is an iconic David Bowie song and seems to signify the ever changing person he is.  His music, appearance and personality have changed so much throughout his career.  I think he is awesome!


The background is brayered with Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Mown Lawn Distress Inks (I decided it needed to be bright for Mr B!). I added drops of water and some pearl Glimmer Mist and when dry ran it through my Cuttlebug using the clock embossing folder which I think is Creative Expressions.  I highlighted the embossed areas with Distress Inks.  The pictures are downloaded and printed from the internet and are all album covers ranging from late sixties to mid nineties. I covered each image with versamark and embossed with clear powder so they look like record sleeves.  You can't see the shine in the photo unfortunately.  The ribbon looks more delicate in the picture than it is in real life.  Its white sheer ribbon coloured with Distress Inks.  I deliberately left the heat gun on the ribbon too long so it would curl up as I didn't want it drooping over the pictures.

If you can, please hop over to the Craft Barn and see the other amazing entries and DT projects and maybe join in - its a really fun challenge!

Thank you so much for visiting me, I really do appreciate it!  I will be popping round for a catch up a bit later today.  Have a lovely day - I hope the weather is as nice for you as it is here in Bournemouth.  Take care. Christine xx

Hi Chris,

David Bowie is definitely someone that has had many looks over the years. I think I know the song you are referring to but am not sure.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my Flat Susan post. She was definitely fun to have!

Hugs,
Kay

What a pretty tag. I love the colors you chose and what a neat idea to emboss the clip art so they would look album covers. I was never much of a Bowie fan, but I do seem to have a lot of friends that are!

Jackie said...

Hope you had a good Easter. Jx
