Our challenge this fortnight is #39 "Inspire Us With Lyrics". I was excited about this one before I knew I was on the team so imagine my joy that my first make would be using a theme I love, music!! The songs were dancing in my head (a lot of room for that type of thing in MY head!) and first thought was a Jimmy Buffett song, so sorry Jimmy, you know I love you! and then I remembered a song that I identified with so much when it came out. It is by Coldplay...yes, old women like cool music, too! lol! and I am hoping this is right, called "Viva la Vida". My daughter always corrects me when I give it my version of the moment name so alas I am going for it! The song is awesome and the repeating stanza is "I used to rule the world.." and I have felt that way many times in my life. Not that I ruled anything, no way! but that I had all I needed at times and then lost the most needed of things, people, and love. Enough sappy talk...here is my version of whom might have ruled the world at one time!
Used Ike's image "Skelly Eagle" http://www.ikesart.com/digital-art-stamps#!__digi-animals/productsstackergalleryv21=7
Used Prismacolor pencils to outline and color beak and tongue
and some paper clay lovelies, a crown and a laurel wreath
which was glued onto some fab gold embossed seals
given to me by Mom estimated at over 15 years old!!
And of course the crown went on his now truly bald head!
Printed out the song words from Photo Shop inked edges and glued
on three homemade enamel dots will give recipe on here soon!
And another seal at the top with a paper clay fleur de lis!
And that was my take on this magnificent bird ruling the world!
Please come join us you have time so don't delay!
Also visit the amazing Ike's Art

Happy Crafting and sing a song while you do!
