It reminds me of something Beulah Bee would do, though not as completely cool and bold... (go check out that chick's blog-- she is an artist). She recently mentioned the people she crafts with... and I felt the same way-- I want to know about them. Except we can know about Jenny Lind... so interesting. And yet, maybe not to everyone. I just love history and thinking of the many lives that have lived on earth, famous, infamous, boring... it all interests me. History! OMG, help my from nerding-out...
Supplies and notes:
- First off, I had the little Cuttlebug from Autumn down and while I was playing, I decided to do a partially-embossed tag. SO FUN! The tag is from 7 Gypsies.
- I was messing with multiple projects, and so I had some Seedless Preserves DI on the mat and sopped it up with the par-embossed tag, and did a little wrinkle-free distress
- I stamped the upper-background with Andrea's grid stamp inked with VersaMark in Champagne... subtle... so nice...
- The image of Jenny Lind, as well as the write-up was already cut in my scrap caddy, so I grabbed her and went for it. I affixed both of these pieces with Distress Collage Medium in Matte, pressing from the middle out.
- The Swedish Nightingale was colored with Pebbles, Inc. chalks from like 2003, actually handed down from a friend
- I underlined portions of the write-up with a 005 brown Prismacolor pen
- The swallows are the result of a Fiskars punch, punched into a kraft envelope that was in my garbage! Bonus: double layer=two birds!
- True Hemp twine
- Added an old Dennison canvas hole-reinforcer and inked it with the remaining Seedless Preserves, then edged the entire tag with Black Soot DI... in hindsight, I shoulda maybe been more heavy-handed here...
