Happy New Year!

The Digi Choosday Team is sharing Something New or Thank youthis week.  Of course, it's always Anything Goes for all of your entries; so come join us for a chance to win some Polkadoodles digis!  

 I chose to go with something new!  I'm starting some new journals this year and one of the journals is art inspired by music.  This particular page is inspired by.......can you guess?  If you were around listening in the '80's you probably know the song:  Gypsy by Fleetwood Mac.  

Let's see, I think I was just starting my Freshman year in college when this song hit the Billboard Charts.  Of course, that was just a few years ago, right?  hahaha

I started with the wonderful Polkadoodles digi Maddie Give us a Twirl.  Who better to represent Stevie Nicks, the Queen of Twirl, than Maddie! I combined her with paper from Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles.  I added a crystal ball (made by altering some cuts) and the flowers are from Horace & Boo Floral Foliage.  

Maddie was printed, cut, and Copic colored and accented with some silver gel pen.  Then I added fabric and ribbons to make her dress look like she really is twirling!  The sentiment is part of the song and computer generated.  I added glitter to the crystal ball and sequins & sparkles around the page.  I finished it by inking with black around the borders.
