Rhapsody in Blue for Dragons Dream

Published September 16, 2013 by isisimaginings

Evening, I hope everyone’s well.  I’ve been in a major slump this past week, more projects have ended up in the bin than have ben finished.  I’ve had this idea for the current Dragons Dream TIO challenge in my head for over a week & I was determined to complete it, even though I messed it up too.

*Edited to add:  The link to the Dragons Dream website doesn’t seem to be working, here’s the direct link;  http://dragon-dragonsdream.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/tio-149-music-tissue-papertape-etc-blue.html

The gorgeous Gabrielle chose the theme this week  & it is ‘Music, Tissue paper/tape & Blue’, with at least one stamp & on a tag..  George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ is one of most favourite pieces of music, so I knew immediately that I would have to include it somehow.

I printed part of the sheet music onto tissue paper & glued it to the tag, not realising until after that I’d forgotten to crumple it as I laid it down.  In all honesty, I couldn’t be bothered redoing it, so I left it.  I painted silver acrylic paint & Ice Blue fresco on top.

I mixed grunge paste with Inky Pool fresco paint & applied it though the CWS cityscape stencil.  Than I added the die cuts & tissue tape.  I turned the TH Umbrella Man in to a musical conductor with Kanban stamps & silver heat embossing & used TH chit chat stickers for the quote.

And that’s it.  Not my finest hour, but at least I finished it. Thanks for visiting, it means a lot.  Until next time,

Love & light.

  • I think this turned out brilliantly! I can just hear Gershwin’s music as I look at the tag! You used Umbrella man so imaginatively and that keyboard swirling over him is superb. I always find your work inspiring, Kirsten. Julie Ann x
