Day 2 Kickstart Your Art

Seems to be the saved by the 24 hour bell once again.  Here is my art journal page for Day 2 of the new Kickstart Your Art week long challenge.  For Day 2 you must use lyrics from a song or poem.

I have chosen one of my favorite songs, "Crimson and Clover" by Tommy James and the Shondells (1968).  

Hard to see but used a Smeared Ink rubber stamp from the Rubber Club Past Offerings stamp set called Lost Dreams.  Wanted to make it psychedelic a bit to represent that era of the song.

Da-da-da-da-da Deets

Lyrics were altered in Word and AR CHRISTY front was used.
Printed out onto some designer paper from stash.
Cut out and then adhered.

Page started with stencil and Dylusion Ink Sprays.
Added lyric squares.
Stamped image with red ink and colored in with markers and a fine tip black Sharpie to help define her face a little more.
Paint brush for red around lyrics and on edges.
Top of laundry cap to help make designs in the green acrylic paint.
Water spritzed over to help blend all the colors.

Sorry that the red looks pink in this pic!
