I’ve got songs tangled up in my hair

Hello again! My quote for this week was “I’ve got songs tangled up in my hair” from the song melodies by Madison beer


For my background I used Daveliou acrylic paint, using a lavender purple color. I used my music clear stamp for the background stamping it with archival black ink. I used some Tim Holtz clear stamps of the word letter, some numbers and a flower clear stamp too. I used white modelling paste through a dylusions flower stencil only using the stem and leaves part. I also used some modelling paste through my star stencil too. I then used my signo white gel pen and graphix black pen to draw musical notes onto the background.


I wanted my pages to look like a girl with her hair streaming backwards with music in her hair like the quote suggests. For my main page I cut out a piece of paper in wavy lines, then used acrylic paint to paint it a light blue color. Once it had been dried I used the same musical stamp I used for the background, instead using white stamping ink to stamp down the musical notes. Once everything dried I used my black graphix pen to draw on piano keys, highlighting notes with my signo white gel pen. I had some musical note washi tape and put them together in three’s, cutting an edge to them and sticking them together onto the page, putting them around the sides of the page.


For my quote page I drew the face and copied what I did on the hair onto the face, stamping down the musical notes with white stamping ink and drawing a piano with black graphix pen. I used different designs of my washi tape to do what I did on the other page, sticking them together in three’s at different sizes.I used my aqua spectrum watercolor pens to color watercolor paper a light shade of blue, then stamped my words on with archival ink. I cut out the words separately and used the side of my archival ink pad to sweep along the edges and then placed them so it looked as if they are coming from her mouth. There was a blank space at the top of my page so I cut out a piece of watercolor paper and cut off the sides to give it an edge. I used my ranger blending tool to apply spiced marmalade colored distress ink to the paper to make it look worn and old. I then applied the music notes with my clear music stamp using black archival ink, then positioning it above the lyrics. I then used a butterfly paper shape cutter to cut loads of butterflies out of my  scrapbook paper and positioned them all over both of the pages as my finishing touch.
