It's time for out new Challenge at Quirky Crafts and this time our theme is "Inspired by Music" and we would like to see something inspired by the lyrics or title of your favourite song or piece of music - and tell us what the music is!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Ike's Art, and the image I have used is Windmill, to represent the song "Living in a windmill in old Amsterdam". There are mice in the song too, but the only mouse images I have aren't really right to use with this, so let's just imagine that all the mice are safely tucked up in their beds inside the windmill.
I wanted to make this using more of a Delft blue, but I couldn't blend the colours properly with my blue inkpad, so I chose this pretty teal instead so that I could use Broken China DI, which I smooshed onto an acrylic block then used to paint the image, adding water a little at a time to get lighter and lighter shades.
The corners I have used are some very old white peel offs that are replicas of old Dutch tiles.
