You Rock my World

Well hello there, it's Horace here again to show you my page for this fortnight's challenge over at Musically Challenged. The chosen video for inspiration is Seven Nation Army and I had a totally fab stamp from The Stamping Chef to play with too, what fun.

I decided to use my lovely new Dylusions journal for my page, as I printed my image out in a large size. I decided to us the inside of a security envelope. I have no idea why, but it seemed like a good idea at the time!

I glued some torn pieces of the envelope onto my page

Then gathered some paint and texture paste.

Oh, and some of this, for added texture.

Goodness, it's very sticky!

But it's good for adding some easy texture to the page.

I spread white texture paste over the page through our diamond stencil, to represent the continuous diamond shapes produced throughout the video.

I coloured my image, mostly in red white and black, as these were the recurring colours in the video.

After adding a red colour wash to the entire page, I added more white texture paste and some black acrylic paint through the diamond stencil. Next, I added some musical background stamps for added interest.

After cutting a title from Cricut cartriges, I adhered the image, and voila, one completed page. This is for Wilbear to thank him for my journal , Wilbear, You Rock My World.

I also made a mail art card to send to the cub.

Here's a close up of the main project.

Take a wander along to Musically Challenged, you have two weeks to join in, and you may win a prize too.

With love from the bears


  1. YaY !!!! Doubly AWESOME - great colours and I LUV that image. The stencilled and pasted background is really cool. :-D
    I am hoping to have a go at this one but 10 seconds of the video made me almost throw up - so I am not sure what it's all about !!!!! Can't take all that heavy movement of the images :-(

    Oh yeah - I made one of those mini albums you showed yesterday - with envelopes :-D x

  7. Fab techniques - and great explanation. Wilbear does rock! I love that song, too - how cool to use it as inspiration. :)

  8. Great funky page - hope that mesh came off your little beary snout without too much damage to the old furry coat !! Ali xx

  9. Fab pages, Horace - and I love the co-ordinating card too. Love how you've got the mesh and then the diamond texture echoing each other. Fab, funky and very cool.
