Lavinia Blog Challenge 7 - Add a Flower
Soooooo excited to show my first sample as a member of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team! I've been entering the blog challenge since it started as I love their stamps so you can imagine the happy dances I was doing when I was asked to join another talented DT.
This month's challenge is 'Add a Flower' and I must say my inspiration for this design came from Messrs Fripp, McDonald, Lake and Giles who wrote a beautiful song back in the 60's called Moonchild for the King Crimson Album 'Court of the Crimson King' - anyone else remember this? There's a blast from my hippie past for you!
I do have an unfortunate habit of thinking with song lyrics - can be a bit annoying at times as unless I get them out of my head I'm humming them all day lol! So anyway, I thought why am I humming this song and of course realised that Lavinia Stamps were ideal to create my moonchild dancing in the shallows of a river .......
I used Mia and Fairy Bridge clear stamps from Lavinia to make my scene on linen card, using Panpastels to create a moon, sky and foreground. I wanted to get a sort of 'tween stage feel - you know when night starts changing to day, just before the full dawn. I added Glamour Dust and some lovely flowers I had including a white or moon lily and there you have it....
I have made some other interpretations of this month's theme which I'll blog later in the month but in the meantime why not take a look at what the other members of the team have done on the Lavinia Stamps Challenge Blog and maybe have a go yourself? Hope you have fun x
