This is my first contribution to the circle journal I'm involved
in on the Collabor-ART blog.
This is for Donna's journal. I say journal, but it is no
ordinary 'journal'! It is a hand made record box and each contributor
has to decorate these following elements which are in the box.
Donna decided to allocate her songs to each of us,
rather than letting us choose - and for me she chose
.... what? / who? ..... Help!!!
Needless to say I'd never heard of them or the song,
but now I love them, the song is really beautiful!
You can hear it by clicking on the link above if you like.
The artists describe their sound as folk / rockability,
so with this in mind I decorated the holder like this -
which seems sooooo naff now, but I thought it was a
good idea at the time!
For the record sleeve I printed out the words onto
copy paper and machine stitched them on.
I went a bit mad with spray inks - adding layer after layer
and did a little rubber stamping too.
This is the booklet inside - I used lyrics from the song
Melancholy in my heart - literally!
More of the same for the back cover
Finally, I added a charm to the outside of Donna's record
box - to add to her already jangly collection!
(Mine is the one with the skull and two pink beads)
I loved decorating my part of Donna's journal
and only hope she likes it too!
