Daisy ... Daisy

Quotations & Lyrics is The Craft Barn blog challenge for 2014.

A new prompt is provided every other week, leaving two weeks for us to think about & create our artwork. The current prompts are
Flower & Travel

I chose Flower & decided to use a line from a song, written by Harry Dacre in 1892, entitled Daisy Bell.

"There is a flower within my heart"

The alternate title for this song is Bicycle built for two, so it covers the travel word too.

This is the front of my bookmark.


This is the reverse.


I used patterned papers by Papermania & Distress Marker (black soot).

Whilst the original song is over 100 years old, it is still a well known & much loved song & has even been performed by Blur, featuring on the special edition release of their Modern Life is Rubbish album (2012).
