I got the Blues

On June 8th I went to Chicago Blues Fest in Grant Park. I normally don't go to this fest, but I knew one of the bands that was playing. So I went. A couple days before I went downtown to The Art Institute of Chicago to see the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit (which was totally cool!). I know this has nothing to do with the blues, but I''m getting there. I was way early for the Art Institute to open. So to kill time i went to the visitors center to see what if they had any brochures on the exhibit. They didn't but i did find something on the Blues fest. So i took a couple of them. One to mail out to a friend, and one for me to art with.

I cut out the Chicago Blues Festival out. I also cut out the piano keys and the skyline and the dates of the fest. I glues them down with matte medium by Blick's. The guitar is from an ad in a magazine. The ad was for Las Vegas! :P But I thought the guitar would go perffect with the blues page. I took the colors for the page off the lettering. I first did black craft paint. and if the paint got on the images I just took a baby wipe to wipe it off. when that dried I took two different orange craft paints and spread that around the page with the baby wipe that was somewhat dried but not totally. I had gotten a map of the fest that also had the line up of the 3 day fest so I made a tip in. I used the crease that was already made as where I wanted to glue it to the page. 

The comes the stamping. I used the harmonicamusic notes and the Guitar and stamped them in Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink pad. I don't have a good white ink pad. And the gold seem to do the job on the page.
