Music Deco

I am in a deco swap on my Byhand group, called Music Decos. We each made (or purchased) a small book that could be easily sent in the mail, and are following each players directions of what they want in their book. Here is my book, called Rock 'n Roll Legends:

The cover shows Elvis's cape that he wore, now residing in Myrtle Beach's Hard Rock Cafe. We visited the HRC in March and took lots of photos, and I'm glad to be able to use some of them for my deco! I made this hard cover deco from an episode of Craft TV Weekly.

I used Santana's guitar to hold all the tags for the artists...

...and my first page was about my favourite legend, Mick Jagger. I love his stage presence and his swagger, but most of all, I think I admire him because he is still alive and performing! I was about 13 years old when I first discovered the Beatles, then the Rolling Stones. I'm amazed that he still has the energy to do what he does, especially living the lifestyle that he does. Keep on Rockin' Mick! Click here to see Mick in action over the years!

I have also completed one page from another deco, this one about quotes:

I used images and transparencies from Altered Pages, as well as some scrapbooking paper, a stamp from Michael's, and some white rub-on letters. The other letters are from a big stamp I have, kind of like a date stamp, but with about 10 rows of all the letters in the alphabet which can be rolled to make whatever word/s you want. I use it all the time! The quote is by Plato.
