When I read the latest post from Scrapping The Music in my Google reader, I was sort of skeptical about the newest song to scrap, which is “Heaven When We’re Home” by “The Wailin’ Jenny’s.” I immediately went to iTunes and listened to the sample……..and was totally hooked. I bought the song right there. I seriously think that iTunes should give the Scrapping The Music gals a kickback on the songs downloaded for their challenges, because I have bought several just because of their fabby site!
The lyrics to this song just touch my heart. I relate to them so much, and I am so glad to have listened to this song……….like 80 million times now. Read them HERE. I love how music does that…….it just reaches in and hugs your heart at just the right time.
This page will “rest” in my “Seasons of Love” album, and isn’t exactly a 12×12, it is more like a 9×11, and is the same size as the covers. The “page” is made with corrugated board, painted with white and light blue acrylic, and touches of distress paint. The strips on the side of the photo of me (taken with the Hipstamatic App on my iPhone), is embossed with Tim Holtz Texture Fades, and inked with distress ink. I punched the varying circles from some really awesome My Mind’s Eye papers, and kind of kept that theme throughout the layout.
My favorite lyrics from this song, are coiled inside this circle……..and placed on top of some of that My Mind’s Eye paper (that’s been really distressed).
This little cluster of embellies required a great deal of thought and arranging (and rearranging) to get to this point. I do enjoy it now….and the moths (from a Tim Holtz sticker collection) make me so happy….they are really lovely.
I am sure most will find the colors in my layout a bit blase, but since this layout was about me (and I don’t do too many about me, though I am trying to….) I decided to make it using my favorite colors, which are muted tones. 🙂
Please visit Scrapping The Music for some really wonderful inspiration using this fabulous song, and come back and visit here at the Gnome tomorrow……for a fun and layery layout. 😉
Blessings to you all! ~
