Kenny K very generously offered images for our Design Team to work with, and I was lucky to get Star. I adore her, especially because I am part of a very musical family. My husband plays guitar and bass, and we have four of them hanging in our office. I don't play, but I can imagine sitting with a guitar like Star and looking awesome....well, maybe not. If only I looked as good!
Anyway, Star inspired me to make a mini paper journal. You could use it to jot down thoughts inspired by your favorite songs (which is probably what I will use it for), or list your fave playlists or make a band collage book. I used lots of paint and a maraud of background paper. I decided to keep Star black and white to make her stand out from the chaos in the background and just colored in her guitar.
I also used a microscope slide, which we now carry in the new Odds N Ends section of our Smeared Ink shop for altering. It was really neat what I was able to do in just a minute or two, and I can't wait to really sit down and use one of these as a more detailed part of a project. The finishing touches on the cover were some blue microbeads, which we also now carry, some handwritten words, charcoal shadows, and some ribbon binding to hold all the pages together.
I hope you enjoy it and get some inspiration, and if you have the chance before the end of the month, swing by the Smeared and Smudged forum and enter either the Very Sketchy Challenge or the Photo Inspiration Challenge (or BOTH!) for a chance to win some free Kenny K stuff. Also, check out Kenny K's Challenge Blog where a new challenge is posted weekly.
So now on to the list of participating hoppers, have fun!
