Here's my third postcard for The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics Challenge where the words are STRONG and/or MISS. I've spent 2 days searching for something profound to depict but have drawn a blank so I've chosen to do the lyrics of the song MISS ELAINE by Run D.M.C. which is about a school teacher.
The background is a mix of Barn Door and Festive Berries Distress Inks overstamped with the numbers from Tim Holtz's Fairytale Frenzy set. I've written physics formulas on some chalkboard and framed this with a wood stamp distressed with Vintage Photo. I've just printed the words on the computer.
Never heard of this song? Neither had I and having listened to it (Hip-Hop/Rap) and read the lyrics, I don't want to again. But my name is Elaine and my friend's husband calls me Miss Elaineous (in a friendly way) and it made me laugh.
Having looked on Amazon for the date (2011) there seem to be other songs too - Miss Elaine by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion which sounds just as awful, Miss Elaine E.S. Jones by Engelbert Humperdinck and I Miss you Elaine by Say it Messages. The only one I like is by the Electric Light Orchestra but that is Dear Elaine!!
As I said last week, this challenge is going to be educational but sometimes not in a good way. So much for producing a book of lovely quotes!! Anyway thanks for looking and for your lovely comments!
