Sing, Sing a song

Sing out loud, Sign out strong! ~Perry Como

I love music. I love all kinds of music and most genres too. Chances are great that you too, my reader, have a passion or connectivity to music. Music paints a story in my head and it's better than anything a Hollywood producer could make for VH1 or MTV. I never have liked music videos for just that reason. Music is personal!

Is it personal to you too? Do certain songs take you back to a specific event or stretch of time? Is music theraputic for you? Inspiring? Let's take a look at music in our art journals this week.

Here are the details: Pick a song and journal about those feelings, or that event, or whatever it is that made you feel the need to select that song. Use whatever media you need to make us feel what you feel about that song. Include the title or something appropriate in your page so we know what song you chose. Have fun with it!

Last week you all amazed me with your gesso textures! A-Maze-ING! I know some of you struggled with your pages, but you pushed on through. Some of you didn't like the results, but you shared with us anyway. I love that - it shows strength, and that it's ok to not love your work. It probably taught you something, all the same!

So - the winner by random.CabanaBoy (he drew the name) - is KYM!! Woot woot! Way to go Kym!! Email me your mailing addy and I'll get the 7-Gypsies tape and Distress ink pad out to you right away! My email is scrapacat at yahoo dot com.

Alrighty  my lovelies - get your supplies out and turn that music up! You'll have until 11:59 p.m. August 21st to link your projects up here. Again, I cannot thank you enough for playing along with my challenges! They are so much fun!! Oh - we will have a prize, I just need to find and photograph it.

Ta for now, ~ky
