Its time for The Craft Barn challenge again, it comes round so quickly and I am getting my entry in on the last day! I went for 'Unique' and chose the song 'Crucify your Mind' by Rodriguez. He is an American folk singer who released a couple of albums in the early 1970's without much success. His story though is remarkable. Unknown to him, his music became hugely popular and influential in South Africa but the rumour was that he had committed suicide. He was rediscovered alive and well and has made an amazing comeback and his story is told in a documentary film called Searching for Sugerman which was released in 2012. If you get the chance, its worth seeing - I loved it and his music is fabulous. I have seen him live too which was amazing!
I am also entering my tag into Hel's Sunday Stamper which is to use Pink.
The chap with his unique look is from Vintage Inventor by Creative Expressions. He is stamped with black Versafine, embossed with clear powder and coloured in with paints and Promarkers. The roses on his top hat are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The birds are Sizzix dies and the background is inked with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Paints and water and then embossed with the Cuttlebug Chicken Wire folder. I have edged the tag and lyrics with black paint and added a bit of Treasure Gold to the embossing. The ribbon is from my stash along with the wire and bead for his earring.
If you have a chance, please pop over to The Craft Barn and Hel's Blog to see all the fab projects.
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Thank you so much for visiting me, I really do appreciate it lots! Take care. Christine xx
