Another Altered Vinyl Record

This is a 45 RPM record. I got the idea of making this with the owl saying from browsing the internet several days ago. I can't remember where I saw it but I decided to make my own graphics in my Digital Image program. It took me awhile to give it this look since I am not a graphic artist! As far as I know, there is not a copyright on the saying as it is a very old saying and I found several versions of it with a word or two changed here and there.
I printed this on white cardstock, laminated it, sprayed adhesive on the back and stuck it to one side of the old 45 record. I also used the Crop-a-dile to punch a hole and an eyelet for hanging it.

Front view of the 45 record.

Back side of the 45 record.


After making this one, I decided to add some shadows to the graphics and I think they look even better.
I'm giving away a copy this the cover for free download if anyone would like to have it. Please use it for "Personal Use Only". Do not claim this graphic as your own or use it in any way to make a profit.

My download includes 2 sizes. I made one for a 45 record and one for a CD. Download here.

What a nice idea!
The problem is... choosing the 45 record to sacrifice, maybe the cd would be easier to sacrifice... so I'll go for the cd version.
TFS.
Hugs,

This is cute. I've made crafts from records before. I usually use records from yard sales, and don't use my own (Yes, I've kept all my records from when I was young). I made a hanging snowman once using a 45 for the head and an album for his body. Just attach them and paint and decorate them. I like recycled crafts.
