I was definitely in Michael Jackson mode over the weekend. First I created my King of Pop Canvas, and then I decided to create this altered art style bookmark, which I call That Simple Dance. This was inspired by the 3 Muses Quotation Challenge, in which we were to use a quotation in our art piece. I decided to use a line from one of Michael’s songs as my quotation, and it’s one of my favorite of his songs, Blood on the Dancefloor.
The base of this bookmark is a textured piece of pink cardstock, and on that I’ve scalloped the bottom edge. I found a photo of MJ in one of his classic poses, up on his toes, and he’s wearing his glittery socks too. One thing’s for sure here–Michael knew what he was doing with those socks. One immediately knows whose feet those are when you look at this photo. I cut the photo to size and adhered it to the bookmark, then added a music sticker to the bottom edge of the photo.
Next I took some black scrapbook paper and used that as a base for my quotation, which is printed on white cardstock. “To Escape the World I’ve Got to Enjoy That Simple Dance,” seemed like a very appropriate quote for MJ. I glued those to the bookmark, then I added some silver-looking brads to the top corners of the framed quotation. And I finished off the bookmark with some matching pink and black satin ribbon.
